The most amazing 3 days of education at Savills

I would like to say thank you for the most amazing 3 days of education at Savills. I can safely say I have learnt more in three days than I have learnt in 5 years. The delivery of the course was outstanding with Joth and Jamie both making the techniques they were teaching both clear and understandable in every aspect. Nothing was too much for them. Not only did I learn invaluable skills but also product information and knowledge which has benefited my shop already. I can safely say I am now a better barber because of this and am looking forward to the future in men’s hair.

Very intimate and this helped with the education

I really wanted to say what a brill time I had on both the shaving and barbering course. I've been on a lot of different hair courses this year and you guys were top. Right from the 1st enquiry to when I finished! It was also nice if Joth to give up some of his evening to have some dinner with us, the fact there was only 3 made it very intimate and this helped with the education. Also all the staff was very nice especially Jamie as he helped with the education which was very good too.

Learned so much

Honestly had such a great week with yourselves and learned so much. I have been back at work 3 days since the course and can see such a difference in my cuts already. The main thing being the more square shape of my cuts (looks so much better). Huge thanks to Joth and Jamie. I've been on courses in the past but you guys are by far the best tutors I've ever had. You really know your stuff and your knowledge blew me away. Your approach in teaching is great as you have so much patience and understanding with your students. Big thanks to Annabel too as you were so helpful leading up to the course, always available to answer questions. All the lads and girls in shop were so nice to us too. Made the scary experience of being out my comfort zone so much easier. Lovely to see a big shop with no egos in it.

Thoroughly enjoyed every moment

I would just like to thank yourself and the team for Conor’s time on the Clipper Confidence course this week. He returned home last night extremely happy with all the techniques your team have shown him and I could not stop him talking about what a great time he had! I’m sure he will be recommending the course for you as he thoroughly enjoyed every moment..

I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 days at Savills

I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 days at Savills. To be in the same company as Joth and Jamie and the rest of the staff was awesome, to learn there techniques and skills was perfect for me. Ive been in the trade for 26 years now and i'm a firm believer in that if you stand still in this game you'll dry up. As well as teaching myself i also love to learn different things and to do it at Savills was an honour. I know the shop was awarded Barber Shop of the year and Jamie was voted Barber of the year but you certainly wouldn't have noticed. They were very humble in there approach to the training. Its extremely professional and well ran and the standard is second to none.


Over the years we received dozens of emails and requests for the traditional barbering training that leads to the skills and professional ethos that Savills is famous for.

Until 2014, the time was not right. As with everything we do, we only wanted to deliver the best and be the best. Late 2014 saw us starting to deliver a 12 month NVQ Level 2 course in Barbering to groups of enthusiastic, budding barbers, and the Savills Academy was born. Now we are proud to offer private training courses in small, intimate training groups (maximum 6 students/10 for shaving).

At Savills, we don’t believe that the age-old skill of barbering can be learned from scratch in just a few weeks. If you are after this type of course you’ll be disappointed. We don’t deliver that type of training. However, if you are a newly qualified barber, a semi skilled barber or hairdresser wanting to hone your skills and draw inspiration for some of the best guys in the business, we can help you on your journey to becoming top notch.

So you see, at Savills you can be sure of the best training in an inspiring environment. Owner Joth Davies has over 26 years experience as a barber and is supported by an extensive team of master barbers and trainees. All of whom are award winning, in addition to being well versed with and committed to the Savills ethos for quality. Here we aim for a fresh take on traditional barbering training that keeps the tradition but mixes it with the new and interesting. We intend to inspire our students to soak up the best advice and tips whilst they are with us.
