DIRECTLY TO COURSES

WHO ARE WE?

The Old School Barber Academy originated from Schorem, the well-known barbershop in Rotterdam. The original Schorem barbershop was simply too small and too crowded to also teach courses at this location. However, once Schorem moved to a new location, the old location was opened up for barbering courses for those who want to learn more about the profession. These courses are available for both beginning and advanced hairdressers, and barbers. Overall, it is the goal to take men’s hairdressing and barbering back to the high level where it belongs.
