Ben’s expertise as a fully-qualified Hairdresser and Barber is exhaustive, having begun in the industry at the age of 16. As a member of the actual Biba Divitaris family, his experience in, and passion for, our unique Biba Academy in Melbourne is one of commitment and heartfelt drive to train the best hairdressers possible. You’ll find Ben at the helm of our unique Barbering Basics Course, and our Nationally Accredited Certificate III in Barbering.
Ben has worked and trained overseas, and that includes valuable time spent at London’s famous Vidal Sassoon School of Barbering, in London.
“Our Barber Courses in Melbourne patiently encourage and support our students in multiple ways. They distinctly benefit from our hands-on approach and the opportunities they have to practise on real people, because our salon-simulated training means they can learn not only the skills they need for cutting and styling hair, as qualified Barbers, but also experience the variety of head and face shapes, and hair textures, AND learn the incredibly valuable skills associated with communicating with human hairdressing clients. I love watching our Barbering Students grow in self-confidence and pursue their new skills with a “give it a go” attitude. We foster a nurturing environment that encourages all types of learners to be their best self, and deliver training that’s practical and fun at the same time. We want everyone to take pride in what they achieve, whilst learning techniques and customer service skills that will carry them forward in their desired hairdressing careers for many years to come.
At both of Biba’s Hair Academies, in Fitzroy and Melbourne’s CBD, you’ll experience productive learning to help you get to where you want to go, and that lies at the heart of every interaction we have with our trainees and clients. Whether our Barbering Students are male or female, we strive to see everyone enjoy the journey and proudly give (and get) great haircuts!”
