The objective of this program and curriculum is to prepare the student for State Licensing Examination to become a Licensed Barber/Stylist, and to provide the appropriate training and hands on practice necessary for the students to become competent professionals.  After completing the necessary credit hours and services, the students will receive a Diploma stating that they have satisfactorily completed the course and will be registered to take the state exam to become a licensed Barber/Stylist.  Note: Graduates will not be able to practice their career until they have passed the State licensing examination.


This program is designed for extensive training in Styling and Barbering.  Students will learn techniques through intensive study and hands on practice. A student that enrolls in our school is guaranteed the provision of the books and equipment needed to develop his specialty as well as personal technically qualified to provide quality teaching.  This program has been created to provide a formation in Barbering/Styling that complies with the requirements established by the governmental organizations.  It is also designed to train the students in the skills required by barbers/stylists in their beginning level which includes: professional development, hair cutting & styling, shaving, mustache & beard trim, coloring, scalp treatment, facials, etc.

















There are legal rules and regulations in place for the practice of Barbering (code of ethics). Ethics is described as the philosophical study of moral values, rules and principles depicting what are right and wrong concerning proper conduct in business. Proper etiquette will ensure that your clients, coworkers and superiors will come to appreciate you and will treat you the same way. This way of conduct will take you very far and will help enormously in your success.

Styling hair is the art of arranging the hair an appropriate style following a haircut or shampoo.  Today many haircuts require minimal hair style techniques due to the quality of the cuts and the availability of effective styling aids such as: gel, mousses and freezes sprays.  Some haircuts, on the hand, require more styling attention, such as blow-drying, curling iron work, or finger waving.  It is important for the barber to be proficient in such techniques.



Excellence in shampoo services requires the barber-stylist to give individual attention to each client’s needs. In addition to selecting the shampoo best suited to the condition of the scalp and hair, the effectiveness of the shampoo will depend on: the way the shampoo is applied, the way the scalp is massaged, the way the shampoo is rinsed from the hair, etc.



The professional barber-stylist works with chemicals and performs services that change the hair chemically and physically.  An understanding of the health and safety standards of the chemical used will help protect both is essential for an intelligent understanding of the various products and cosmetics used in the barber-stylist shop.

Our goal in this chapter is for the students to learn how to explain and demonstrate the theory and the fundamental procedures associated with a perm and the creation of a curl. This is a chapter where the


Chemical aspects are translated into the student ability to create a perm or to straighten the hair for a client.  This technique produces great chemical changes in the hair that will offer new options for haircuts and styles for the client. The students will be capable of identifying the different types of perms, the chemical contents of each, and the methods of application. As well as different methods of hair curling, positions and patterns for perms, rinses, the different categories of curls and their advantages and the general elements necessary for the job.



The students will be able to discuss reasons why men purchase hair pieces, identify the types of hair used in the manufacture of hair pieces, demonstrate correct cleaning methods for hair pieces, discuss alternative hair replacement methods, etc.




Hair coloring is the science and art of changing the color of the hair.  Hair bleaching is the partial or total removal of natural pigment of artificial color from the hair.  Skill in both hair coloring and bleaching requires thorough practice, determination and study.




The purpose of scalp and hair treatment is to preserve the health and appearance of the hair and scalp.  These also help to prevent and combat scalp disorders such as dandruff, hair loss, dryness and oiliness.




The students will learn to define the composition, function, types of skin, the difference between skin disorders and skin disease, and the steps to follow during a facial treatment, including massage, makeup application and hair removal.




At the end of each chapter an exam comprised of practice and theory will be given to each student to give them the opportunity to show that they have assimilated the information covered in the chapter and that they fulfill the professional requirements established in the barbering field. In addition to that, there will be examinations given at the completion of 300, 600, 900 and 1500 hours respectively.
