Train by the Best in Canada

In 2010, this first-ever Fade theory was created by the founder (Dwight Murray) who has over 18yrs experience performing the traditional art of barbering. He is also the founder of the renowned chain of Barbershops (Miami Fades) located in Canada. He has trained over 2000 students and established over eight barbershops in Canada, that has created career opportunities for 90% of the graduates. Murray's educational background such as Aviation (Pilot) and Mechanical Engineering allowed him to create a training system with such accuracy and precision. Also, he has recently toured European countries such as England, Italy, Paris, Spain, and Greece studying hairdressing by some of the top hairstyling education institutes in the world. He believes if anything is measured and calculated correctly, it will create the correct structures and procedures. Pay attention to all the details in his teachings and expect great results.

Our Reviews

**UPDATE** I’ve received an email from Dwight that I would be getting my kit . As promised, it was available yesterday for pick up. My assistant picked up for me today. I’m happy to move forward. Dwight, I wish you the best!Hello, Ive been writing you, asking about my kit. Its almost been two years and i have not received the kit i paid for. I no longer live in Toronto . Please let me know how you will be sending the kit to me. or the money for the kit. Ive been trying to email you about this and you tell me i can pick it up but then you don't respond with a time. But now i cant pick it u because i am not there. How can we fix this problem?I also just read your response to my one star. And now i am going to respond. I have proof that i was not happy with your teachings. i have letters. I am not being negative, i am writing from experience. This was not a good experience for me. I was in the program for one week before leaving. And i was honest with you about that. I left and found an amazing school that helped me and taught me well. I now just want the kit that is owed to me. Its been paid for. I wish you well. I mean no harm. And no doubt you have been able to teach others, i wish that was the same for me. Your class room is clean. People will love it here. But its not for me and there is nothing wrong with that. But i do need my kit! People are in fact interested in this kind of review because it is an Academy and people want to know students experiences. I hope to hear from you in a Positive Professional way.I'm looking forward to hearing from you. You know that i am successful in the industry and the negativity comes from the way you have responded to me in the past. I am know in the industry and have worked as a professional for 18 years with many editorials and tv shows that i have worked on over the years., Anyone can google my name is see my work and the number of celebrities i have worked with and continue to work with. They can see that i have won contests to become lead stylist for New York Fashion Week. I have Years to be happy about and continue to grow as a person and a professional. i came to you to update my services. Thats the truth. I have no regrets about leaving your class.I honestly wish you well. I do have positive things to say and would be happy to share. But i at least need my kit. Peace and love to you.

Really enjoying my time at fade master as student. I have been into barbering for the last 6 months, but the last month i have learned a lot about cutting hair and about the newer ways of cutting it as well. They are very organized and the classes are very fun and interesting and our group is always helping each other and we keep in touch everyday on everything we do. I advice this experience to all the people who choose to do this as career job because it was very helpful for me.

Recently finished the theoretical part of the Ontario Barbering Diploma. Classes are very informative. 10/10 recommend to anyone who plans to have a career as a barber, because you'll be taught by the best barbers in Toronto.

During class session, we came in and got fades (low and mid), along with trimming on the top - from Clark and Dwight - the result was excellent. The work they did was exact and extremely clean; Clark definitely took his time to be precise. Dwight was super welcoming and very friendly - showed incredible professionalism. You can notice right away that Dwight takes his craft very seriously - the guy knows his stuff. The general atmosphere and overall vibe of the workshop were extraordinary.

I really enjoyed my experience at this school. I walked out with great knowledge of the industry and the chance to really establish a career in Barbering. Dwight, the founder of the school has such a passion for the industry that you can tell it through the work and lessons that he delivers. I would highly suggest this academy for anyone looking for an exciting new career in the Barbering field.

As someone who is in week three of the program I can say confidently that I made a good choice in picking this academy. The founder of the Miami Fades chain teaches the majority of the course while his esteemed barbers who were also taught through Dwight Murray demonstrate different techniques that will help differentiate those who learn at the TFMA versus anywhere else. I highly recommend bringing your business here.
