So here is why I COACH, my life experience has led me to this point. 

I believe it’s my purpose to create real value in peoples’ lives and make a positive meaningful impact with my work, a work that I’m truly dedicated to. I want hair professionals to think bigger about this industry and be the guy that helps achieve the biggest dreams possible for anyone I work with.

Here’s why, it’s all in the name ‘Foster’ the definition of foster, means to care for and encourage the development of (something, especially something desirable) there you have it that's why I‘m your expert.

 Hi, I am Chris Foster a Multi award-winning barbering educator that travels the world and helping  barbers and stylist build empires without the blood sweat and tears. 

I help people shortcut years and years of figuring it out! 

Helping people achieve their goals seriously is my favourite thing to do. 

And it actually always has been, this is the reasons why I founded The Foss Academy. 

In my career I've been fortunate to be a Creative Director for some of the most prestigious barbering emporiums within the UK. Harrods Barbershop, Gentleman's Tonic and Men's Salon at Selfridge's oh let's not forget the Refinery in Mayfair where I'm currently based. 

But, I think it all started back when I was a session stylist directing and overseeing global creative teams for shows including Fashion weeks in Paris, Moscow, New York, and London. That maybe somebody else would like to do this too! Somebody else would like to be at the top of their game. Having  a large celebrity clientele and traveling  the world. Hey, even earning lots of money sharing their knowledge or just cutting hair.  

This is how The Foss Academy was born. Out of a passion for sharing and helping others achieve their goals.  

It's taken me 20 years to figure stuff out!!!

But I can assure you, it will not take you that long to earn considerable amount of money doing what you love, all you have to do is follow the elite strategies outlined in my courses. What I offer is shortcut to achieving great success like I have in my career.
