Decent Cut Barber Academy

Launch your journey to becoming a great barber.

The Decent Cut Academy is run by the award-winning team from our unisex barber shop in Manchester’s city centre’s bustling Arndale Centre. We’ve got a passion for passing on our expertise, whether to those who have never picked up a set of clippers before or those who have worked in the industry for years and are looking to develop or refresh their skills in a particular area.

We offer a multi-cultural environment and specialise in Afro, Asian and European hair, making the academy the perfect place to learn from award-winning barbers with vast experience with all hair types. Under the tutelage of a team who’ve won several National Hairdressers Federation Britain’s Best awards, you’ll learn the fundamental techniques and deeper skills needed to become a master of the craft.
