At the London Hair Institute our intensive and interactive NVQ courses are held in a vibrant salon environment where clients provided by us receive their treatments from our students throughout their courses.  In this fast paced industry you will need to hit the ground running with your new barbering skills. We will teach you how to give your clients the very best service from the outset, and there is no better way than thisto learn for both technique and confidence.
