Lloyd has been in the trade for over 15 years. Gaining his first qualification as a hairdresser with Saks London. After getting more involved in men’s hair he decided to train in London as a barber.
After gaining a vast amount of barbering knowledge from his time training and working in London, Lloyd made the decision to move back to Wales and setup a barbershop.
As the barber shop became more successful. Lloyd began to train extra staff to work alongside him. Lloyd then discovered that he had a flair for teaching and this was the new direction to take his career in the barbering industry.
Lloyd was then offered the opportunity to work and educate at a well know London barbering academy. From this opportunity the Thomas Lloyd barbering academy evolved.

Previous academy students have moved in to successful careers in the barbering industry.
Many students now own and run very successful barbershops across the globe. As far afield as Australia, Canada, Lebanon, Italy and Belgium to name but a few.
