Who we are
The GB Academy
We are a group of passionate barbers with over 25 years experience in the industry and 10 years teaching students to become qualified barbers. With three shops across Cardiff and Penarth along with a brand new purpose built Academy in the heart of Cardiff we are perfectly positioned to train new barbers and put them into the Welsh barbershop scene.
What do we offer
NVQ Level 2 and Mini Courses
We offer a fast track NVQ level 2 qualification that teaches a complete beginner all the skills they need to become a barber.
We also have a range of mini courses available to learn new skills or brush up your abilities in specific areas, under the observation of a seasoned professional.
Barbers meet new people everyday, new stories, new conversations.
Every hair cut is slightly different and styles change, get creative.
Barbers are required everywhere, want to move? Travel? or go remote? Do it.
Your own shop? Freelance? Master barber? Where do you want to go.
The Gents of Brooklyn Academy’s aim is to inspire and assist people to harness their creative desires improving technical and artistic skills into qualifications.
We empower people to pursue a career in the modern hair industry enabling progression into modern and classical barbering at the highest level.
