We are very excited to collaborate with the incredible EPH ‘The Barber’ on this fantastic AFRO HAIR ‘TEXTURE BARBERING’ 3-Day Intensive Course. EPH brings his many years of industry experience working across Film & Tv, as personal hairstylist to his A-list clients and running his hugely successful eponymous barbershops across London to this course.
Eph’s insatiable passion for teaching & sharing his skills & artistry with the industry – make this the perfect industry-leading course for session artists & hairdressers ready to invest in your skills to become more inclusive & diverse in your barbering skill-set.
Across the 3 days of the course, structured as a series of Masterclass sessions – Eph shares core-barbering techniques from Cuts & Trims to Shape-Up’s & Fades, unique to working with Afro-textured hair to empower you in making sure your black male actors, artists, models & clients feel looked-after, nurtured and confident in your skills, hair-design choices & creative vision.
