BARBERING (1 year program)
9563 Grade 11, 12 3.75 credits Harkness
Students will learn the art of barbering through experienced instructors who will share the latest industry trends. Students will gain the essentials of complete hair and skin services such as steam facials, facial massage, and foam shaves, as well as modern styling, hair cutting, coloring, and blow drying. Barbering is an art form that requires the skill and an understanding of the principles behind each cut. Barbering students will practice their art in a live, barber shop setting with clients from the community. As many graduates go on to open their own barbershops, students will also learn about shop ownership and business management. Erie 1 BOCES assists students in preparing for the practical exam in order to obtain a NYS Master Barbering License.
