Course Content
Morning Session
Theory lecture covering the foundations of Chapter Education;

  • The fundamental aspects of men’s traditional barbering and contemporary hairdressing with a modern structure.
  • Consultation breakdown – how we look at hair.
  • Fading techniques.
  • Sectioning methods.
  • Scissors work.
  • Styling and finishing.

Paddy and Warren will then demostrate the processes on two live models with a full breakdown on the current trends and systems they use.

Afternoon Session
Trainees will apply the fundamentals which were presented, to either a doll’s head or a live model. Each trainee will be helped closely by the tutors.
Upon completion, each person will present their model to the class. This will help them to master the technical language and also build their confidence.


About the Trainers
Who are Chapter Education?
One half of Chapter Education is Paddy Corrigan.
Paddy began his career as an apprentice hairdresser for Peter Mark in 2009 where he studied the art of hairdressing. Over time Paddy began to cut men’s hair, blending contemporary hairdressing with traditional barbering. Soon after, he opened his own hair salon, ‘Area 9’ and he focused on building his brand. Paddy has always believed in hard work and has a passion for creative learning. He wanted to encourage others to feel the same way, and so he began to teach his staff. Due to his large online presence and popularity in the barbering industry, barbers began contacting Paddy about teaching their staff. This lead him to becoming an educator. Paddy has facilitated a number of educational workshops in barbershops and hairdressing salons, and on stage at major barbering events in Ireland and throughout Europe.
Paddy believes that everybody has their own ability to grow as a creative professional. “It begins by laying a foundation with the fundamental techniques and guidelines. With your foundation set, and by using the guidelines, you will unlock your creativity and the possibilities will be endless.”

The other half of Chapter Education is Warren Flynn.
Warren is the
owner of the award winning salon ‘The Dublin Barber’ based on the outskirts of Dublin City. Warren began his barbering career almost 10 years ago cutting a few friends and family, and from then on he realised which direction his career was moving. From the very start Warren wanted to attend as many courses as he possibly could, because he believed there was always knowledge to be gained from someone else. This led Warren to wanting to take the educational route.
Warren believes that each individual has a creative workflow, and in order to enhance that particular aspect of creativity, they must utilise a range of foundational systems. Warren has accumulated a number of awards along his way as well as educating in some of Ireland’s biggest salons. He has been on stage at hair shows nationally and internationally. Bringing value to people who are willing to be open to a foundational system that is a crossover between contemporary hairdressing and traditional barbering, is a core part of Warren’s values.
