Our Barbering Program

Barbering is so much more than just hair. Our barbering curriculum is designed to help students learn key fundamentals in barbering procedures, application methodology, materials, equipment, supplies, and products. Unlike in our cosmetology program, you’ll be able to take a deeper dive into more advanced techniques for a variety of shorter hairstyles, shaves, fades, and more.

Students of this program can balance learning the anatomy, chemistry, and physiology necessary while also practicing what they learn in our student salon. All services are provided by students under the supervision of licensed professionals and give our students the opportunity to practice running consultations, recommending products, and most importantly providing a hairstyle, shave, or hair color that each client loves.
