The freedom of virtual & the connection of Live

At Barber Boot Camp Academy, we strive to make sure that our clients' needs are met. We understand that sometimes, more and more in our current society, traveling for training or a class isn't an option. Our goal is to make sure that all of your training needs are met so we are launching Barber Boot Camp Academy our first Virtual Clipper Cutting training package. Everything that you would get in person is now available in an innovative self-paced/collaborative class. You will have time to go over the material on your own and then have the opportunity to join in a live session with our educators who will lead the class just like you were sitting in our live training

Phase 2 - LEVEL 2 ACCESS to our haircutting video library. This library is our step-by-step “How To” videos on a number of different cuts and textures. These “How To” videos include: fades, tapers, mo hawks and straight & curly hair. Use these step-by-step cutting videos to perfect your style.  Imagine what having the ability to go back and review the videos a number of times (in the comfort of your own space) will do...

One of the best investments I’ve ever made in my career. Absolutely recommend to any one wanting to learn or step up their men’s haircuts. The class was engaging, fun, and so full of information my head was going to explode. From the first hour to the last I was so excited! Lu made it so easy to learn how to fade. Gave me inspiration and confidence which is invaluable. Thank you Lu!

Honestly the best class I've ever taken in my 30 years in this career!!!! Lou breaks down the fade and taper like no other!! He makes you feel very comfortable to ask any questions you have. I guarantee you will take home so much great advice and knowledge of the skill and the tools. Best investment and value for your money you will ever get. I can't wait to take level two and perfect my skills even further!!! Thank you, Lou, for sharing your knowledge with all of us.

This was such a fun and informative class!!! I never felt weird to ask questions and learned a lot! I already do a lot of clipper cuts but this just took me to another level with details and gave me more confidence with bald fades. I definitely recommend this class and look forward to more classes in the future!

I intended to watch just a few minutes, grab a shower, and save the rest for when I had time. Ended up watching the whole thing. What a great teacher. Super tight cut.
