BARBERING + COLOR
We’ve expanded our barbering program. In many states, like California, barbers can also do hair color. In Utah this is a 1,200 hour “Hair Design License” which we refer to as a “Barber Focused + Color”. Our Barber program now includes ALL aspects of a Barber License with the added benefit of training in hair color. The course includes: long and short hair cutting, beard & mustache design, hair coloring, grey coverage and chemical services (such as straightening or creating curly hair) for both men and women.
Career opportunities include: Barber, Barber Shop Owner, Hairstylist, Hair Color Specialist, Salon/Spa Owner, Platform artist or Educator. Both National and Local Barbering & Hair Design Guest Artists are brought in frequently to provide advanced training. Placement assistance is offered.

Our instructors provide in-depth class lectures so you can learn the necessary theory before practicing on live models. This also gives us the opportunity to understand and accommodate the needs and skill levels of the students at the time of enrollment.
At Taylor Andrews Academy, we offer a technical education so you can acquire the necessary barbering techniques, but we also prepare you to build a network of professional contacts and clients. This program is different from other barber schools in Utah, and focuses not only on the technical hands on application but on personal and business success.
We keep our classes small so we can maintain a ratio of one instructor to a handful of students. This way we can offer more one-on-one instruction and guidance in our barber courses, and you will have more flexibility to progress at your own pace and master each unit of the program.
Our dedicated instructors can work with you to add a barbering license to your repertoire, whether you’re completely new to the industry or are a seasoned stylist looking to increase your range of skills. Our program is designed to help you succeed in this exciting career.
