About The Program.

Become a Master barber in 4 months

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.

    Donovan gave me a great hair cut. He did exactly what I asked him to do. He seemed a little nervous but that was to be expected. Well worth $3 plus a $7 tip. $10 for a haircut!!! I would give 5 stars but the place was too small for the amount of people inside. Also it was my first time and it was difficult to figure out the sign in system and no waiting area.

    Wished to have a trim before we head back to HK. Passed by a barber school for only 3 dollars for a regular haircut. Hehe.. And it's not bad actually. Good that we could help out student trainees practice and also reach their 500 hours required for graduating.
