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.
