Live as if you were to die tomorrow,
Learn as if you were to live forever.
- Mahatma Gandhi





It had always been our dream to be able to share the knowledge, experience and passion we have for everything barber related. With our Academy, we are now fortunate enough to be able to fulfil that dream and help like-minded people realise their potential.

In 2018 we opened the doors to our first MR. Academy in Cambridge. We were fortunate enough to partner with West Suffolk College to be able to deliver real qualifications. We run our education facilities to teach apprentices, full-time college students, our own barbers and anyone who shares the same ambition and drive to learn and push the boundaries of the fastest growing most exciting industry out there.

Like our shops, the MR. Academy is for everyone, whether you are a complete novice or 30-year veteran, we have courses that will help you grow as a barber, as an artist and as a person.

Our passion has always been to have real barbers, delivering real education, on real models in a real barbershop environment. We want you to be inspired by what you see and feel confident that everything you learn, you can take straight back to your cuts.

All our courses are designed and run by our in-house education team which is made up of internationally experienced, practising barbers. Each course is designed to give as much real-life hands on practical training as possible. We will teach you all the skills you need, but we really want you to be able to get stuck in and practise what we are teaching. Make your mistakes with us, so you can learn by them and then take your new skills straight back to your customers with confidence.

~Barbering is the art of creating, without an eraser~

  • Great course! Has really helped me get to where I want to be as a barber and great prospects after I finish my apprenticeship.
