At A.B.I., we pride ourselves on all of our students’ progression, as they become professional barbers. The guiding principle of barbering education is that we provide our students the necessary education to work in a sustainable, nearly recessionproof occupation and to instill in our graduates a sense of pride in their work. So many of our graduates go on to live their dream of earning a living by cutting hair. It is an exciting challenge to help someone feel their best by providing that individual with the haircut that he or she wants. It should come as no surprise that a special set of veterans desire to become barbers – one of the most challenging, yet fun and relaxing jobs around – after they leave the Armed Services. We take such pride and offer our heartfelt gratitude to our students who served this country and then decided to embark on a new career in barbering.
