New Intensive Barber Course Will See Barbers Learn Second Men’s Haircut


A FRESH era in male grooming has arrived with the news that a new apprenticeship course will see new and existing barbers learn a second distinctive style of haircut.

“This has the potential to revolutionise men’s hair as we know it,” confirmed one men’s haircut recipient, upon learning of the news.

Despite a considerable investment in marketing in recent years, barbers have failed to convince men that the haircut they’ve been given isn’t anything but short back and sides.

“You might have lads walking around with a curly mop on top that more closely resembles a llama, but nothing has changed. We know all your tricks, a quick flash of the mirror for the back of the head – we’re not fooled,” offered one men’s haircut owner.

The intensive 14 year apprenticeship, which comes with full industry accreditation, will commence on Monday but has faced early opposition from the Irish Barbers Unions who have sought clarification over whether it is even legal to attempt a second style of haircut.

Sadly, there is no news on courses aimed at improving client/barber conversations beyond ‘y’up to anything over the weekend?’

“My hands are shaking at the thought,” said one barber, who has been offered help by one women’s hair stylist who happy to teach barbers how to get 60 minutes conversation out of agonising over a barely visible slight fringe adjustment.
