How Long is Barbering School?

Apr 16 2024

Are you ready to unlock your passion for creativity in the world of Barbering? Barbering programs are traditionally known for their emphasis on short hair cuts for men and women such as hair styling, shaving, and trimming. Unlike our cosmetology program, this specialty program focuses entirely on hairstyling and care, instead of a more rounded education in hair, skin and nails. Barbering goes into greater depth about short hairstyles, as well as facial hair grooming and trimming. Straight razor shaving is also often covered! 


Barbering is excellent for people who want to specialize in facial grooming and short haircuts.
