The monochromatic Barber School Amsterdam is a intriguing concept that fuses barbershop and beauty school. Part of the Heads Academy, a hair stylist training school founded by Renate van Laerhoven, Barber School hosts training courses for students training to become barbers.

The understated interior of Barber School was designed by studiomfd, who also created the shop's facade and promotional materials. The minimalist space is characterized by circular ceiling light fixtures that glow like halos and floor-to-ceiling windows that let in plenty of natural light.

Given the emergence of niche, male-targeted barbershops that aim to create an experience for men that rivals the salon experience for women, it makes sense that the Heads Academy would pursue an expansion directly targeted at student barbers.
