What’s the difference between a barber and a cosmetologist?

Barbers are trained more specifically in techniques for short hair, facial hair grooming, and shaving. This means that barbers typically focus more on men’s hairstyling and cutting. Cosmetologists learn additional skills in skincare and nail care. To learn more about the differences between cosmetologists and barbers, read our blog!
