Passage of this practical exam permits licensing, employment as a Licensed Barber, and qualifies the holder to own a barbershop, in which he or she can employ individuals as Apprentice Barbers.

The Program classically trains students in Hair cutting and a broad range of the latest hair styles for men and women:

  • Clipper Cutting
  • Shears-over-comb Techniques
  • Shampooing
  • Facial Massage

  • Shop Management, Ethics
  • Preparation for State Board Exam, State Law, Proper Methods of Sterilization, Sanitation, Hygiene, and Common Skin Disorders
  • Preparation for Job Interviews and Licensing.

Graduates are assisted by our school to obtain an Apprentice Barber Registration and therefore they can be gainfully employed immediately after graduation, even while waiting to take the State exam.
