Our first class of licensed cosmetology students started in our Barber program this week! They will be attending for 240 hours in order to receive their Barbering license. The program consists of training in straight razor shaves and classic to contemporary Barbering techniques. It builds upon the knowledge they already have as experienced Cosmetologists and tailor their skills towards barbering. It also includes State Board boot camp to prepare them for the Barbering State Board Exam.
This first class is a small one, but there are already a few familiar faces in it. Three of the five students are Federico alumni, and it’s so great to have them back with us! All five students have been successfully working as stylists for a few years now, and each has their own reasons for furthering their education. Alumni Taylor B. has been working as a stylist for five years now, and is hoping to grow her male clientel at her current salon. Grant N. is wanting to grow with the current boom in men’s’ grooming and barbering. It’s a growing field and he’s excited to see where it will take him.
We can’t wait to see how these experienced cosmos approach all the new skills they will be taught and we couldn’t be happier with this new class! Welcome!
