Course overview

The Shave Day celebrates everything involved in a traditional British wet shave; from working with fresh hot towels, to learning delicate forehand and backhand razor techniques. On this course, you will learn how to perform perfect full and partial shaves.

You will be one of a maximum of six participants allowing plenty of interaction between trainee and educator from the Great British Barbering Academy. Upon completion, you will be rewarded with a certificate and a package of The Blue Beards Revenge products appropriate to your course.

Please note: This course can be attended by beginners, but attending as a novice (no previous experience/knowledge) will mean that you may be limited in the education that you will gain from the day. Knowledge gained does vary dependent on how quickly the attendee pick up the skills but we do recommend gaining previous experience or knowledge to benefit the most from the course.
