The Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s Barber Project team spent Monday morning being mentored by former British Barber of the Year and Wahl Educator Andrea Raymond. Andrea demonstrated two cuts on models – a skin fade and a clipper cut. Starting by explaining the five key elements of a cut – shortest, longest, blend/transition, texture and finish – she shared techniques and tips with the team, including clipper-over-comb work, beards, working with clipper guards and how to fade and blend. In the afternoon the team created different looks on block heads.
Sarah Morrissey from Sarai Hair & Beauty said, “After this session I will definitely be using clippers more. I feel more confident with my skin fades and using the clippers to achieve this. I’m also looking forward to sharing this with my team on our next training session.”
