CAPE Testimonial - Hairdressing, Beauty & Massage

A cut above the rest

"I'm very passionate about what I do. The whole industry is such a cool thing, It's a real family - when we go away we catch up with other barbers and it's a very close knit industry."

Nathan, Barbering student

Four years ago, Nathan Thompson decided to put down one set of tradesman’s tools and pick up another set. Only this time it was scissors, clippers and a straight razor.

He enrolled in the Certificate III in Barbering and now spends his days ‘keeping it handsome’ as the Head Barber at Prince Street Barbers in Grafton. Nathan says that he's tried to put a modern spin on barbering, while still honouring the old school techniques. It’s this innovation and mastery that saw Nathan awarded the Gold Medal at the TAFE NSW Excellence Awards.

And proving Nathan hasn’t forgotten his tradie roots, he’s recently renovated the space at Prince Street Barbers to cater for the business expansion.
