North Hertfordshire College was thrilled to welcome the Great British Barbering team to our Hitchin Campus for their Great British Barber Bash event! 

In the lead-up to the event, NHC’s barbering students joined Great British Barber’s Ollie Foster, Phony Pony, and Charlie Baker for a masterclass in modern barbering featuring exciting new techniques and demonstrations of contemporary styles that they can replicate themselves. In the evening, our Hitchin Campus played host to a selection of local employers from the hairdressing and barbering sector and future NHC Hairdressing & Barbering students for further live demonstrations on our model volunteers alongside some great networking opportunities. 

Rachel Currell, one of NHC’s Course Team Leaders for Level 2 Hairdressing & Barbering, said of the event: “It was fantastic to welcome the Great British Barbering team to the College, they were a great motivation for our students and the demos they provided to the guests were exceptional. The tips and advice they gave to our students will stay with them, and definitely support them in their careers after they qualify. It was also a great opportunity to invite local employers to the College, share best practice, and build on our working partnerships. Overall, this was a fantastic experience for everyone involved.” 

The feedback from local employers was positive, check out some of their comments in the carousel below!
