Barber Crossover


The objective of the Barber Crossover Course is to develop in the student the practical skills, theoretical knowledge, professional attitudes necessary for success in the profession, and to qualify and equip the student to pass the California State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology Barbering licensing examination.

After the graduate has successfully passed her/his state exam, they are qualified to work as a licensed barber in any licensed facility in the state of California. The Barber Crossover program prepares individuals to shave and trim facial/neck hair and beards, cut and dress hair, fit hairpieces, give facial and scalp massages, apply cosmetic treatments, and to prepare for licensure as professional barbers at various levels. Instruction in facial shaving; beard and mustache shaping and trimming; shampooing; hair cutting; hairstyles and styling art; facial treatments and massage; chemical applications such as color and chemical services; hair and scalp anatomy and physiology; hairpiece and toupee fitting; equipment operation; health and safety; customer service; and shop business practices. The Barbering Cross-Over course is 200 clock hours in length. The 200 hours will be divided between the various scopes of the program. There will be plenty of practical hands on time as well as technical instruction (theory hours), which consist of various learning activities in a classroom environment. The institution uses the most recent version of text for the student’s studies. The Milady’s Standard Professional Barbering text is used along with various periodicals and visual materials. Practical/Hands On time is devoted to practical operations in which students develop and practice Barbering skills under the supervision of licensed instructors in actual working conditions. The institution prides itself in giving the students the opportunity to work in our salon-like clinic environment. Additional subjects include, Retail practices, Job Hunting, and Career Opportunities. In order to graduate, you must complete the required 200 hours of instruction AND all of the practical procedures required by the State. Once you receive your certificate of completion from the school, you may now apply and take the State Licensing Exam for your Barbering License.

The Barber Crossover course is 200 clock hours in length, which can be completed in approximately 7 weeks of full time attendance. A portion of the curriculum is devoted to technical instruction (theory), which consists of various learning activities in a classroom situation. The balance of the course time is devoted to practical operations in which students develop and practice of Barbering skills under the supervision of licensed instructors in actual working conditions.
