Chris Foster delivers master class in barbering for apprentices


Chris Foster, barber to the stars, visited Interserve Learning & Employment head office in Sheffield this week [October 22] to give apprentices and learners a master class in barbering.

He is Creative Director at The Refinery, Mayfair, former Director of the British Barbers’ Association and Principal of The Foss Academy, which is dedicated to providing education through his elite men’s grooming training.

Chris’s excellence has been recognised by numerous awards and accolades including Most Wanted, Men’s Grooming Specialist 2016, nominated finalist of the HJ British Hairdressing Business Awards 2015, Hair Magazine Best Men’s Hairdresser of the year 2014, 2015, Master Craftsman Diploma from the Hair Council.

During his visit Chris also presented more than 24 learners with certificates of achievement as they develop their barbering skills.

Chris said:

“Barbering is an extremely rewarding career. I’ve had the opportunity to travel the world, meet the most amazing people within this profession and I know by teaching these young people that barbering can change lives.

“For a lot of young people a barbering apprenticeship gives them the training they need as they embark on a career in the hair industry and the people trained through Interserve Learning & Employment can look forward to a bright future in the workplace.”
