The Barbering Business
For many barbers, opening an independent barbershop is the ultimate goal. This is the time when you can express your creative talent as a completely independent artist and craftsperson. You can set your own prices and potentially earn like the pros, go to international barbering events, give out your own business card, and develop a list of clients who will fly in to see you.
Students learn basic barbering skills as set by the Mississippi Board of Barber Examiners. Students train to become a licensed barber including haircutting, coloring and styling as well as manicuring, facials and shaving. In addition, students learn retail product sales, salon development and practice those skills in a model salon/lab setting.
