Ruffians Education

With nearly seven years leading the revolution in British men’s barbering and grooming under our belts, the Ruffians team is excited to announce our latest endeavour: The Ruffians Education program. Launching in August 2019, the Ruffians Education program begins with three one-day training courses designed to upskill hairdressers looking to hone their barbering skills and for barbers who want to refine their technique in cutting and shaving.

The program is led by Ruffians’ own hairdresser-turned-master barber, IT List Most Wanted nominee and team educator, Matt Gavin. Matt will be running one of the three one-day training programs alongside colleagues Jake Murphy who is Ruffians’ shave-master and internal educator and Richard Tucker – star barber and master of the art of fading.

Tailor-made training

As well as the one-day courses listed below, the Ruffians Education team can provide bespoke skills training to meet your specific needs - whatever the size of your salon or business. Need a quote? Get in touch at
