Start Your Barber Education

Less than a Year

A year from today you could be a licensed barber. Depending on the location or schedule, our full-time barbering can be completed in as little as 8 to 10.5 months.

An Affordable Education

We offer financial aid for those who qualify. You also may qualify for scholarships or a payment plan to cover your educational costs. To learn more about which option is best for you, complete the form at the top of this page.

Be balanced

Many of our students are busy with life while they’re in school, juggling a family, a career, and side hustles. Don’t let the label “full-time” scare you. Our classes are held only a few days a week, giving you the flexibility you need to be successful in all your endeavors.
