Barbering is one of the fastest-growing segments of the salon industry. At AVEDA, we encounter guests who want a barbershop experience but with services that feature our unique AVEDA brand of difference. That’s why we designed our Barbering Program to provide students with all the traditional techniques of machine cutting, scissor cutting for more structured shapes, grooming and color, with the extra care, wellness, and styling that our guests expect from an AVEDA-certified stylist.
The 1,200-hour barbering course is a 40-week program that has instructor led classroom and clinical training as well as practical hands-on application. Training encompasses three types of learning: theoretical knowledge, the foundation of the students’ education; practical experience, the application of knowledge; and the professional business building skills that are vital for success. Each phase of the educational process emphasizes a different combination of learning approaches that include hair and scalp treatments, hair care rinses, machine cutting, scissor cutting that focuses mainly on short structured shapes, straight razor shaves, face and head shaving, color, line-ups, fades, professional business-building skills in management and career development, and employability skills. Throughout the program, students will be accompanied by licensed educators within a fast-paced, hands-on salon environment.
The objective of this program is to prepare students for the state licensing examination in barbering, and provide the training that will prepare them for a future as a barber, retail sales specialist, salon/barbershop manager, or owner. Students will learn technical, personal, and business skills, with a focus on our unique AVEDA approach to techniques and products.
