Who We Are


 

 

 

Blade Craft Barber Academy provides education in the craft of barbering. Our staff is comprised of Blade Masters that bring real world expertise to guide students on their own journey to mastery. With an upscale learning environment dedicated solely to straight razor shaves and barber education, students learn the skills they need to pass the state board exam and succeed in the grooming industry. At the end of the curriculum, students leave with an understanding of the nuances of male styles and male grooming products. 

Our curriculum is a balance of theory and practical skills. Students learn a wide range of barbering skills from hair cutting and styling, to the art of straight razor shaves. They also learn the finer details of the craft like the importance of sanitation, proper etiquette, and networking to increase client base.
