What Former Students Are Saying

"I had the absolute pleasure to attend Blade Craft. My experience was by far the best I ever had, and I'm glad I took that one step in life and invested in my future to further my education. Not only did Blade Craft give me the confidence with clients, but it also gave me the confidence to believe in myself and know that I can deliver a luxury experience not just with haircutting but with the straight razor. Blade Craft has a great curriculum, but it's also amazing how they help you understand the business side and help you grow. One of my favorite things, was being able to meet different people from the same/different industries and talk to us about business and motivate us to better our selves and show us that anything you set your mind into is possible! Thank you Blade Craft for giving me the opportunity to change my future! "

"I was fortunate to be pointed in the right direction of Blade Craft by an instructor at a former barber Academy. I expressed my want to achieve a great start in the industry and this is the best start you could receive in this industry. From the business fundamentals, to the hands on demonstrations and off-site opportunities. I have secured a dream entry position for when I graduate and I can’t be more excited to continue my journey in the barbering industry."

"I had the pleasure of attending Bladecraft- it was by far the best investment I could have done for myself. I got the chance to learn from great instructors that pushed me to not only be a complete barber, but a better person. The location, and community, that Blade Craft offers helped me network during my time there and I can see the positive effects it's done for me professionally in my career so far. I got exactly what I was looking for while attending Blade Craft!"

"I can't say enough of this establishment it's the best thing I have done in my life! Long of the short it's the Harvard of Barbering schools and I HIGHLY recommend anyone that is ready for a career change THIS IS the place to get Educated... forever a Blade Craft Graduate"

Class of 2017

"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 Blade Craft! I still try and visit down in Deep Ellum!"
