Hear From Real Blade Craft Graduates

"I had the pleasure of attending Blade Craft Barber Academy in 2016. When I found out about BC I knew it would change my career as a men's focus hairstylist. The decor of the school is gorgeous, but I really enjoyed the small classes (as I don't do well in large groups). The attention I got to perfect my craft was amazing as I didn't get it in hair school. I wouldn't have gotten a job at a few shops if I didn't attend Blaze craft! I still try and visit down in Deep Ellum!"

Camille, Class of 2016

"I absolutely love Blade Craft. I attended their school to further my education as a hair stylist to become a barber as well. The classes were very informative and also fun. It has helped me expand my own business. I have so many great memories from Blade Craft and I will be forever thankful for them!"

Kara, Blade Craft Graduate

The Toolkit

We believe you dress for the job you want, not the job you have. At Blade Craft tuition covers more than just your course curriculum. Every student gets a Barber’s kit filled with the highest quality tools that will last long after graduation day.

Custom Barber Smock

Each student will get a custom tailored white Barber’s smock fitted specifically for the student.

Handcrafted Leather Barber's Bag

Made to take a beating, this American-made artisan leather case from Satchel and Page will hold all of your gear for years to come.

Straight Razor

We love the Feather weighted straight razor, and include it in all of our Barber’s kits. It has a good feel in the hand, sharp blades and one of the easiest razor disposal methods around.

Other Hardware

We believe practicing with the best tools makes you the best you can be. We include Etaro student shears and Andis GTX Outliners clippers in every apprentice kit because we believe these are the best tools to learn with on a daily basis.


We use the Milady Standard Barbering textbook. It’s the leading resource in barbering education, providing students with the foundational principles and techniques needed to be a successful barber. And Blade Craft just happens to be featured in it.

Blade Craft Uniform

Last but not least, the toolkit comes with 2 Blade Craft T-shirts from Lewellyn’s Print Shop located right here in Deep Ellum.
