Success! Both Danielle and I passed our Waldorf School of Barbering Examinations. We had a short then a long haircut. We were timed at 45 minutes per cut. The atmosphere was very professional and we were very focused. Sinéad M. the external examiner was extremely efficient and made exhaustive notes on her clipboard throughout the process. We got no assistance from Linda our instructor, who was patiently waiting for us in the office and monitoring the performance remotely.
When we received our verbal results, we got a score out of 100. The pass rate rate was set very high (much higher than a university pass rate!) There were 10 categories and we were individually marked in each category for each haircut (we each had a short and a long haircut). Items marked ranged from razor work to familiarity with tools to overall appearance.
I would like to sincerely thank Linda Finnegan of the Waldorf Barbershop. Linda has been a fantastic coach and tutor. She has been patient and has a gift for teaching. I am honored to have trained with her as she has been a World Championship competitor and winner in male barbering and is really a master at her craft.
