Jason Matica

Leading Educator

Jason is the Co-Director and Leading Educator at the London Barbering Academy. In 2017 Jason opened MBF Barbers in Enfield, which has now become one of the leading salons within the area.

He plans to open a chain of MBF Barbers within the next year across different areas of London - which you could be a part of! In 2018 Jason launched his own MBF Haircare Product range and clothing apparel.

Jason started his hairdressing journey when he was 17, working in numerous unisex salons and training in all aspects of hairdressing on both men and women, and in particular precision cutting techniques, which is where he found his passion for shorter hair but also understanding the importance of customer service in order to become an expert in providing a style which every individual client wanted.

Working his way into the barbering industry, he developed and enhanced his hairdressing and barbering skills. This is where he excelled in combining his hairdressing and barbering techniques enabling him to become a successful stylist in this field.

When he opened MBF Barbers 3 years ago, his idea was to create the ultimate barbering experience combining excellent customer service, hairdressing scissor techniques with barbering clipper work, in a professional, friendly and truly unique environment. The brand is rapidly growing, as are the shops, which is where you can learn to train and join the rapidly expanding team.

Jason’s passion for educating his staff and showing them how to combine the hairdressing scissor techniques with the barbering clipper work, has led to the opening of the Barbering Academy and this is why training with him will truly make you into an expert in this field.
