About Us – Hair For Men Academy

Welcome to Hair for Men Academy
Your pathway to an exciting new career


We are the UK’s leading award winning barber training academy. We are dedicated to ensuring one thing, our students go away confident in the skills that they have achieved. We are also the only barbering academy that operates a portfolio of barber shops, this for you the student means real job opportunities when you finish, in fact 95% of the teams in our shops are graduates from the academy! We also operate a number of franchised Hair for Men barber shops making that reality of running your own shop just that little bit closer.

We teach one thing, barbering! Our highly skilled trainers are not only qualified to teach but all have considerable industry experience in barbering, we are “real barbers teaching real skills” and our trainers spend regular time working in our barber shops to ensure that they remain current on all the trends and styles that are being fashioned in the industry and media.

Our courses are designed to teach modern and traditional barber skills to cover a broad spectrum of styles. There really is a course for everybody, beginners, back to work and refreshers, we do the lot!

We think of our academy as an extension of our barber shops and operate in this way so you go away ready to take on the world with your new found career, give us 100% and we will make sure you finish your course and achieve your qualification.

Funding Available 
If you are registered unemployed


If you are registered unemployed and in receipt of benefits then you maybe eligible to receive funding from the Department of Works and Pensions (DWP) for one of our courses. However, that does not mean that you will automatically receive funding. You should attend the Job Centre as part of a normal interview cycle/schedule. Tell them that you have found a course that you would like to take in order to gain this recognised Diploma in Modern Barbering Techniques.

The final decision on whether funding is available will be decided by your Job Centre advisor.

This will in turn allow you to obtain a job and therefore you would be coming off benefits. Inform them that the course provider is registered with the DWP, quoting our DUNS Number 217878543. They will need to be satisfied that with the qualification you will receive interviews which will lead you to receiving offers of a job or you can demonstrate that you will sign off of JSA and enter self-employment or permanent employment of at least 16 hours per week.

We cannot emphasise enough that you will need to demonstrate to your advisor, that you are a worthy reciprocate of public funding.
