I designed the Master Barber Program for everyone who wants to gain complete knowledge in barbering: from theory to practice.

Barbering is a career that requires mastering the techniques, being creative, and keeping up with the trends. It is a process that guarantees a dynamic career in which you will constantly evolve!

Let me assure you: I created this course precisely as I wish someone had done for me when I started. Plus, I've gathered all my knowledge and tips for an extensive career in the field!


Sid Sottung, once a 14-year-old apprentice in a traditional Italian barbershop in New York, has evolved into a trailblazer in the hair industry. At 18, he joined Vidal Sassoon, quickly rising to Assistant Creative Director after successful stints in New York and Washington D.C.

Sid's decorated career continued as an educator in Sassoon academies, taking him from Santa Monica to international stages, including China. Following his Sassoon days, Sid ventured into freelancing, contributing to the 2005 blockbuster Pride & Prejudice and sharing his expertise in exclusive salons worldwide.

In 2014, with the Sid Sottung Academy, Sid is providing a unique opportunity to learn directly from an internationally recognized educator. The academy is now exclusively online and will provide training for all levels: beginners, intermediate, advanced, shaving and coloring. As of now, the Master Barber Program provides the fundamentals to kick-start a successful career.


My Foundation Course is the starting point for complete training as a barber. I designed this course as the first level of your learning journey. After this program, you will have comprehensive knowledge of the foundation of barbering and be able to apply it to your work or growing career.  After this course, you will be ready to continue expanding your skills with the upcoming levels, increasing complexity and range of techniques.
