How to Become a Barber. Go to Barber School.

I recently decided to take on a new trade and decided to look into a few trade schools. In my search I came across a cosmetology program that I was interested in. Becoming a barber was always an option as I have been cutting hair for years without any type of barber license. After compiling a search of barber schools near me and finding out the barber license requirements for my state I was on my way to becoming a barber.


Barber School History

In the late 1800’s, the very first school for barbers was established in Chicago.  This was the 1st school available today on earth as well as rapid success soon resulted in by adding branches through the entire United States. Fast forward to current times and barber schools have generated the roll-out of schools of cosmetology where students learn everything you should know about styling, treating, and coloring hair in addition to natural skin care, makeup and manicuring nails. Barber schools have finally become beauty schools where cutting locks are one among many skills learned for the duration of transforming into a trained and licensed cosmetologist.

Why I Chose Barbering as a Trade

The way I saw it, I needed to make money fast. I could of went to a more difficult trade school for a more difficult trade but I chose something that I could get done in less than 6 months with little to no effort. I needed to make money fast and this was the quickest way to get to the money. After I started to make money I would later research other trades then transition into those. The only issue I have with barbering is the amount of time I have to stand on my feet. I am very lazy and this was not a good look for me.

How I Found a Barber School Near Me

I was lucky enough to come across a directory of barber schools throughout the United States. Come to find out, there was a top barber school near me right behind my house. I didst have to commute far, I just walked around the corner and boom I was at school. This helped me to get done with the course quicker as I was able to stay later and accumulate more hours to complete my program.
