apprentice barber


Apprenticeships certainly are not for everyone and many aspiring barbers prefer to enroll in a barbering program at a barber school.  However, school can be costly and with hour requirements, make it almost impossible to work and go to school simultaneously.  For the right individuals, an apprenticeship program is an excellent way to learn the art of barbering and gain hands-on experience- and we'll pay you as you learn!  


You’ll still be required to study on your own from a textbook, the more recent version of Milady’s Standard Professional Barbering. And you’ll still need to pass your state exam to earn your license – the same exam that graduates of barbering schools need to pass.
