Detail and precision cutting of men’s hair is the focus of our barbering program. The training will encompass the most relevant men’s grooming techniques to include cutting, shaving and texture. You will acquire the technical and business skills necessary for a career in a barbershop or men’s salon.
Our barbering program has now been approved to offer Federal Financial Aid to students interested in pursuing a career in barbering with the Institute of Beauty and Wellness.
Begin by learning the fundamentals of men’s design, styling, and related sciences. Lectures, demonstrations and workshops concentrate on developing skill and accuracy and reinforcing classroom knowledge. You’ll be introduced to product marketing, client servicing and personal development skills. This unit also covers state safety requirements.
Our focus on classic barbering techniques and design philosophy will be a strong foundation as you begin taking guests on our clinic floor. Shave skills are introduced to allow you to provide well-rounded services. Business workshops focus on employment and career advancing skills.
Refining your skills on the clinic floor will assist you in building confidence and allow you to attract and retain male clientele; preparing you for the salon or barber shop. By completion, you’ll be eligible to become a licensed barber.
