Barber School: The Start of Your Barber Education

The first step to any good education is the proper schooling. Going to a good barber or cosmetology school is the START of your foundation as a barber or men’s hairstylist. When selecting a barber school it is a good idea to visit more than one. Do not pick a barber school just because it is the shortest commute or the cheapest. Your career as a barber is at stake.

When visiting a barber school ask permission to talk to a couple of instructors and pick their brains. Ask them why they chose a career in barbering and why they would recommend one to you. Ask them what positive impacts attending their barber school will have on your career as a barber.

Before your visit ends talk to some of the students and ask them a few questions about their experiences so far in barber school or cosmetology school. Why would they recommend their school and how do they feel it will have a positive impact on their future? Are they happy with the student kit or do they feel they would benefit from additional tools? One of the most important things to find out is how much practical experience you will get before you graduate school. Theory is extremely important but you can only learn how to be a barber by being a barber. This may sound overly simple but the best way to learn how to cut men’s hair is by cutting men’s hair. The best way to learn how to shave someone’s face is by shaving someone’s face.

Make sure to get the most out of your experience. Take every advantage you can to take in the knowledge and experiences of all of your teachers. Watch and learn from all of your fellow barber students. Be humble and leave your ego at the door. There is something to be learned from everyone you come in contact with even if it is what not to do. In many cases this is just as valuable a lesson as anything else you will learn. Work on as many clients as possible while you are in barber school. Learn how to cut as many different hairstyles as possible to get the most out of you barber education. Ask your clients a lot of questions as well as your teachers to get a good feel for the male customers’ likes and dislikes. All of the above suggestions will go a long way in giving you a head start upon graduating barber school.
