I really enjoyed the course.

Tyron was an amazing teacher and helped me to improve my barbering skills through the 9 week course.

I fully recommend Gents of Brooklyn Academy. Best learning academy in Cardiff.


Tyron has been an amazing tutor, anything I needed he was available and eager to help! The course was enjoyable and engaging, and I learned all I needed to get cutting.

I would recommend Gents of Brooklyn Academy to anyone who wants to get cutting to a high standard quickly in a professional working environment.

Can't find a job that suits you?

We get it, the job market is competative, food needs to be on the table and the lights need to be kept on, so you end up doing a job you don't like to get the money coming in.

Sadly, this is the story for many people.

Doing a job you don't like can suck the life out of you, throwing any creativity out the window. You find yourself working for the weekend and praying for the end of the day to get out of there.

That being said

Barbering is different

We have been in the barbering industry for 25 years, with 10 years experience teaching students the art of barbering.

We love seeing people grow with the freedom and flexiability a barbering career offers them.

Barbering doesn't judge, it's open to everyone and can provide opportunities to create a life you don't need a holiday from.

Meaning barbering skills can be used wherever you want to be around the world.

It's social

You meet new people all day and every day is a new day.
Which we believe is much better than staring at a computer.

Each head of hair is different and each customer wants something unique.
Using your skills to put smiles on faces never gets old.

Do you want your own shop?
Become a master barber?
Anything is possible once you have the skills to achieve it.
Your earnings and lifestyle are yours to craft.
