"What will set apart Hairfellas School of Barbers from other training programs in Ottawa?"
Students will notice the difference the minute they walk in the door. Hairfellas School of Barbers is a structured academic based program. Traditionally what was found in Ottawa was what is called "in house" training meaning students were trained to work specifically for that barbershop. Often times those environments were made to feel "pressured" or "trapped". Where we differ is that once our students have successfully completed the curriculum they have the freedom to apply and work wherever they choose. We find this method a much better environment for learning. We are training barbers for the better of the trade and not just for our advantage. For details about our program please read below.
