It’s been such a hectic and awesome 2017 so far at Franco’s Barbering Lounge that we’re pleased to announce two new barbering apprentices have joined us to grow the team.
Firstly, we’re welcoming Charlie pictured above, as a new men’s hairdressing apprentice to our Gloucester Road-based barber salon.
Charlie will be spending four days a week in-salon, learning the craft of men’s hairdressing and male grooming from Franco and the team, combined with one day per week at Reflections Training Academy in Bristol to take formal NVQ Barbering exams after a two-year training apprenticeship with us.
Charlie is currently learning the ropes, working within our busy Gloucester Road barbering salon, with a second apprentice now joining us as well.
Ralph, pictured below, has developed a passion for barbering and decided to embark on a career change and is set to learn the barbering trade with us.
Like Charlie, Ralph will be spending four days per week in-salon and one day at Reflections Training Academy working towards his NVQs in Barbering.
The NVQ Hairdressing training covers key elements for both of our new barbering apprentices, including barbering, cutting techniques, and all the knowledge required to pass NVQ Levels I and II.
Franco will be providing over 30 years of barbering and male grooming expertise to both Charlie and Ralph, as well as showing them some of the best barbering in Bristol from our gorgeous barber salon on Gloucester Road.
Since opening our new men’s hairdressing salon in Bristol last year, after more than three decades at Overton Road opposite The Hobgoblin pub on Gloucester Road, we’ve seen client numbers boom.
We’ve introduced online booking, and are now open from 10.30am to 4pm on Sundays too, as the increase in new client business has been awesome.
It’s all stacked up to be an amazing 2017 so far, and we’re pleased and proud to welcome our new apprentices to the best barbers in Bristol at Franco’s Barbering Lounge.
