Pivot Point International

For more than five decades, Pivot Point has been a leader in beauty education, fostering over 1 million individuals on six continents, as they create sustainable careers within the hair and beauty industry.

"As a global publisher of hair and beauty education, Pivot Point was committed to have a global perspective in the education development for the Pivot Point Fundamentals Barbering program. It was important to us to have an expert barber from the UK involved together with other expert Barbers from the US and Canada. Chris was a perfect fit for our project, due to his broad knowledge on traditional British barbering and men’s hairdressing, as well as his own international experience as a barber, session stylist and educator. Pivot Point education is always about logic and predictability, which means we go beyond understanding how a haircut, a shave or a style should be done, we want to know why to do it a certain way, and how to adapt for different client’s needs. Chris was very forthcoming and shared his expertise passionately at times with humor and always with enthusiasm."

Sassoon Academy

For over 60 years, the reputation of Sassoon Academy has been built on developing and providing world-class education at our academies and education centres around the globe.

The Foss was commissioned by Sassoon Academy to provide bespoke barbering education to their lead educators on a ‘train the trainer’ programme. Chris Foster was also invited regularly as a guest educator to share expert knowledge on male grooming to their students. We are inspiring hair professionals of all levels of experience.



Indian School of Hairdressing

Working in India at the Indian School of Hairdressing, in Mumbai, Chris Foster shaped the new barbering programme in conjunction with The British Barbers Association, where his responsibilities include working as the Creative Director of the Association. With this prestigious association, Chris toured North America and Canada, teaching in Vancouver, Toronto, New York and Miami, spreading the gospel of great British barbering whilst raising the standards of barbering globally.
