What is Required?

Before you can be eligible to become a student at our school, there are some requirements that you would need to meet. These are required for anyone who wants to become a licensed barber in the state of Pennsylvania:

  • High school diploma or GED
  • Have a photo ID like a drivers license or birth certificate
  • Earned your Pennsylvania cosmetology license if applying for our crossover program

If you don’t meet one of those requirements yet, you can still contact our team and learn what you’ll need to do so you can be prepared to take the next step when you’re ready.

Reach Out to Our Team

Anyone who wants to apply for one of our programs in Norristown will need to fill out the form on our website or they can call us if they want to speak to our team directly. Once you fill out the form, our team will be able to contact you shortly via phone or email depending on which you prefer.

Schedule a Tour

Although this step isn’t required for your application to our school, we highly encourage you to come in so you can see our school for yourself. During your tour, you’ll be able to see our classrooms and our student barbershop, experience how students interact with our instructors and learn what the culture is like at our school. If you have any questions that are specific to you, this is the perfect place to ask our instructors and even our students who were in the same position as you. Not sure what to ask on your tour? Here are some ideas to help you get started!

Is Financial Aid Available?

As an accredited school, we’re able to offer a variety of financial aid options to students who qualify. The first step is to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form to learn what options are available and which would be best for your financial situation. Our team would be happy to talk more about this process on your tour or wherever you are in the application process.

*Financial aid is available to those who qualify.

Are There Different Scheduling Options?

We want everyone who has a passion for barbering to be able to apply for one of our programs! That’s why we offer multiple scheduling options, including night classes. Talk with our team to learn more about what’s available and which one would be right for you.

How is the Curriculum Set Up?

In our programs, we cover all the latest techniques and skills that are used in the barbering world. Through classroom learning and hands-on practice, our curriculum is designed to prepare students for whatever career path they most want after graduation. If you have any questions about what our students learn or career advice, our team would be happy to help you!
