Hello and welcome to
​​​​​​​GrooMRooM Barbering Academy

I’m Darren Moore, owner and senior barber. Good to know - GrooMRooM Barbering Academy is a member of the British Master Barbers Alliance, so you can be sure we are fully regulated and meet statutory requirements not only for local authority rules but also those industry relevant that are added by the Alliance for the satisfaction and safety of customers, staff and trainees.

I run a traditional style barbers, dedicated to providing quality barbering services at very reasonable prices, at GrooMRooM Traditional Barbers, in Chorley, Lancashire, and it is in this very friendly environment that all our training is delivered. Because our customers range from baby’s first trim, to those wanting modern, or traditional styling, through to real veterans of the old style barber shops, we have a great variety of training opportunities, and we also organise models where necessary. We have no shortage of customers with beards or moustaches, and those with clean faces who enjoy disposable wet shaves as well as the traditional cut throat shave. This means we can ensure your training covers the wide range of barbering services on offer.


rewarding & highly skilled

Barbering is a rewarding and highly skilled occupation requiring the highest standards in underpinning knowledge, practical ability, personal presentation and excellent customer communications. Our intensive courses are designed to teach you how to safely and competently cut hair and carry out disposable razor wet shaves and cut-throat shaves using a variety of techniques and methods, tools and products.
