What you will learn

Barbers trim, shape, and taper hair. They use tools such as scissors, clippers, razors, and combs. When a barber grooms a client’s facial hair, he or she will apply lather to the area to be shaved, usually the beard or hair contour. The barber will then remove the unwanted hair using a razor. Barbers may also provide other services such as applying lotions, shampooing, styling, and coloring hair. In addition, a barber may perform massage services for the scalp, neck, and face.

In the Barber Crossover Program you will cover all curriculum of the Barber course that was not part of the required training or practice of a Cosmetologist. You will receive technical instruction and complete practical operations covering the subject of shaving which includes assessing the condition of the clients skin, performing shaving techniques (hot towel shaves, head and face shaving, as well as beard and mustache trimming), applying aftershave antiseptics following facial services, massaging the clients face and performing rolling cream massages. In addition, you will build on the information you learned as a student and practice as a licensed Cosmetologist to fine tune your men’s haircutting skills.

State Board Training

To prepare for the state exam, we offer state board training throughout your time with us, and mock state board tests given by our on-staff state board specialist toward the end of your training to pinpoint any areas you may need to focus on.
