What You’ll Learn

Our 1,200-hour barbering program teaches students how to provide clients with a classic barbershop experience and the perfect hairstyle, whether trendy or timeless. It combines traditional time in the classroom with real-life client training on the clinic floor under the direct supervision of licensed educator professionals. Our curriculum includes:

  • Scalp treatments
  • Hair care rinses
  • Machine cuts
  • Scissor cuts
  • Straight razor shaves
  • Face and head shaves
  • Hair coloring
  • Line-ups
  • Fades
  • Management skills
  • Career development skills
  • Employability skills

Depending on the location and schedule, our full-time barbering program can be completed in as little as 8 – 10.5 months.

Students will walk away equipped with the most relevant barbering techniques and practical business knowledge. This program is designed to prepare people who want to work in a barber shop, salon, or spa and those with goals to open their own shop.

Although this program is full-time, it’s designed with flexibility in mind. Classes are held only a few times a week, making it possible to succeed at school while focusing on other time commitments such as work, caring for your family, or pursuing other interests.
