ABOUT THE PROGRAM.

During the four months of instruction, students complete two weeks of barber theory where students gain an understanding of sanitation, sterilization, barber history, barber laws, and shop management.

Instructors also spend a great deal of time training students on how to do facial massages, hot towel shaving and preparation for the New York State Board Exam. Upon completion, each student will have an opportunity to meet with job placement and review the opportunities open to them to begin their employment.

Barbering offers an opportunity to earn an exceptional income. Many barbers are their own boss and get paid every day. Some barbers may, in time, earn more than some college graduates. The opportunity for an above average income potential can be yours. As a barber you decide how hard you want to work and how much you want to earn. We are so invested in our future barbers that we help our graduates with job placement and we make it our priority to help facilitate information between our graduates and prospective barbershops/salons that are hiring.
