Entrepreneurial Opportunities with Our Barbering Program

Becoming a barber involves mastering a skill set that is always in demand. Yet, for many who enter the profession, the ultimate dream is to take these skills and use them to create something of their own – a personal brand, a loyal client base, and potentially, their very own barbershop. At Associated Barber College, we not only equip students with technical barbering skills, but we also prepare them for these entrepreneurial opportunities.

Barbershops have long been local business staples in communities across the country. They are places where people come not only to get a haircut but also to connect, converse, and feel part of a community. Owning a barbershop can be a rewarding venture, providing both financial success and the opportunity to make a positive impact on your community.

Our barbering program provides comprehensive training in cutting, styling, and grooming. But we go further than that – we also emphasize the business side of barbering. Here’s how we prepare you for entrepreneurship:

      • Barbering Skills & Industry Knowledge: We start with the fundamentals. This includes training in a wide range of barbering techniques, as well as providing a strong understanding of industry standards, trends, and best practices.
      • Business Skills: We help students understand the basics of running a business. This includes lessons on managing finances, marketing your services, customer relationship management, and more.
      • Hands-On Training: We believe in learning by doing. That’s why our students gain practical experience in our on-campus barbershop, working with real clients under the supervision of experienced instructors.
      • Professional Guidance: Our instructors are industry veterans who have a wealth of knowledge to share, including insights into opening and running a successful barbershop.

By the time our students graduate, they have not only the barbering skills that clients demand but also the business savvy to start their entrepreneurial journey.

Start your journey with us at Associated Barber College and turn your entrepreneurial dreams into a reality.
