The objective of the Barbering 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 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 Barbering 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 course is 1500 clock hours in length. The 1500 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. You must complete the required 1500 hours of instruction AND all of the practical procedures required by the State.
