What Can I Learn in the Program?
At Premier Barber Institute, this program focuses on helping licensed cosmetologists learn additional fading , barbering and men’s styling skills that are specific to shorter hairstyles and facial hair. Our program is divided into sections that each have theoretical and practical lessons to help students feel prepared for a career after graduation. During students’ education, our instructors will be there to offer advice on how to perform services, career options that are available in the barbering industry, and anything else related to a future career as a barber. After completion of our program, students can have the necessary amount of training hours required to sit for the Pennsylvania State Barbering exam.
At Premier Barber Institute, we offer a variety of financial aid options to students who qualify. To get the process started, you need to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid® (FAFSA) form. This will let you know what options there are and which could be available for you based on your financial situation. Contact our admissions team if you have any questions about this process and we would love to help!
*Financial aid is available to those who qualify.
Get Practical Learning Experience
For each technique our students learn, they’ll have the opportunity to study it through both theoretical and practical lessons. This means that once students learn the basics of each technique, they’ll be able to perform these services on actual clients in our student barbershop. All services will be performed under the direct supervision of licensed professionals so students can get immediate advice and support from our instructors.
You can follow us on social media as well to see what it’s like to be a student here as they learn and practice on our salon floor with instructors that care about their success!
