I have taken many courses before, but half of the information on them was useless and outdated. The first course I chose based on what I wanted and needed was Martin’s course at MENSPIRE Amsterdam. Martin showed me how to work easier and enjoy the process. Thanks to Martin, I fell in love with long haircuts, which I was previously afraid of. I received a lot of advice about social networks and self-development, and after the training I got a second wind in my work. I would like to say a huge thank you to Martin for his knowledge and advice. Invest time, money and energy in yourself and do what you love!

I came to Amsterdam to train with Charlie Birt and Eoghan Murphy as I trusted their skill sets as well as an intentional investment in my own self. Charlie’s knowledge of men’s precision cutting has definitely helped look at my haircuts a lot differently and constructively. His professionalism and knowledge shows why he is the leader of the Amsterdam quarter. Eoghan’s 1 on 1 helped to put everything together that I had learned in two weeks with Sean and Charlie. I can’t say enough on what solid individuals the bunch from Menspire Amsterdam are!

The team at Menspire Amsterdam were phenomenal in making me feel welcome and I left completely satisfied. The value for money is second to none and I will be investing with Menspire Amsterdam further

I recently attended a one-day course, and I must say it was an absolutely fantastic experience! From the moment I walked in, I was warmly greeted by the staff and instructors who made me feel right at home. Throughout the day, the instructors demonstrated a deep passion for their craft, and their enthusiasm was truly infectious.
I was amazed by the level of expertise and attention to detail displayed by the instructors as they guided us through various cutting techniques and styles. Overall, I left the course feeling inspired and empowered to take my haircutting skills to the next level. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to enhance their knowledge and proficiency in haircutting. Thank you to the entire team for such a wonderful experience!
