The Barber/Stylist Program provides the perfect opportunity for future barber/stylists to learn the industry of passion and artistry! Barbering is a world all of its own complete with a chance for entrepreneurship, opportunities to travel, and networking. To become a barber/stylist isn’t just learning it, it’s living and breathing it. #BeABarber

Additionally, our future barber/stylists leave this program with a professional-grade understanding of how to cut, shave, and style hair. Also, how to execute trending cuts like a crewcut, an undercut, a low fade, and so much more.  Moreover, Barber/Stylists will learn problem-solving and time management to understand what will make or break an entrepreneur in the industry! As an extra bonus, barber/stylist students will be taught hairstyling like roller curls, pin curling, and other facets of traditional styling.

About Our Barber/Stylist Program

In short, Aveda produces career-ready barber/stylist students by the time of graduation. To do so, we believe in a hands-on approach to instruction. With that in mind, they will learn to perform hair services such as shampooing and texture care.

Subsequently, our future barber/stylists will also generate a rich knowledge of Aveda products and superb customer service techniques. Moreover, this program prepares barber/stylist students to advise clients on how to care for their hair at home. This means that not only will you know what product is the best recommendation for clients but also how to market/sell.

In addition, throughout the course of the program, our future barber/stylists will work with a Master Barber who will teach them the essence of the trade and the skills to perfect even the most difficult of cuts and styles.

Due to COVID-19, our classes have moved to a hybrid style where our theory is taught online and our practicals are taught face-to-face.
