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.
We look forward to meeting you.
