Being a barber means more than just being able to cut hair which is why Bespoke Barbers has introduced the Bartolo Academy. We endeavour to do more than just train new hair cutters - we want you to be the whole package.

Introducing Auckland’s barber training school: Bartolo Academy.

Our 1-day barber courses are hosted in shop, in small groups with heaps of one-on-one time with our highly experienced Educators.

At Bartolo Academy, our passion is providing the best possible education for the next generation of barbers. Our ultimate goal is to raise the bar of New Zealand’s barbering industry above international levels.
