Our History

In 2014, we opened our doors in the Philadelphia metropolitan area to those who were wanting to join the world of barbering. We combined Westchester School of Barbering with Premier Barber Institute to strengthen our environment and curriculum. Westchester School of Barbering already offered VA benefits and after the merge, we applied for accreditation and received Title IV federal financial aid accreditation. We are now known as Premier Barber Institute.

In our immediate area, we are the only barbering institute that is accredited meaning, you can receive a quality education, federal financial aid*, and potential employers know all the essential skills were covered in our curriculum.

At Premier Barber Institute, it is our goal to help students learn how to be successful in the barbering industry. Our programs are designed to have a curriculum based on skills that are important for growth.

Our owners Dan, Tyrik, and Victor are very passionate about helping future barbers succeed in their goals and reaching their ambitions. They have been working on growing not only the school but growing the individual students within their programs to become talented professionals in the world of barbering.

Why Premier Barber Institute?

We’ve worked hard to ensure our students receive the best education. We’ve recently added a stage so every student can see any demonstrations or lectures. We also have a central gathering point where students can have lunch and network with each other and their instructors. We want our students to feel as welcomed and comfortable here and our newly renovated space offers more opportunities for students to learn and grow!

If you’re still trying to decide where to start your education, here are some of the things that set Premier Barber Institute apart from other barbering schools.

We offer an intensive, attentive educational approach that is hands-on and interactive. This allows students to thoroughly learn the material in a way that works best for them.
