Barbering Program

A career in barbering can allow you to express your creative side while showing off your technical skills. Avalon’s program was designed to prepare you to not only sit for the state board exam but to give you the confidence you need to find the perfect shop to showcase your talents after graduation.

This program is ONLY offered at the Aurora, Colorado location.

Course of Study

Avalon’s Barbering course was designed to provide a balance of education and experience. You can flex your creative muscles in our classrooms and in our student clinic where you get to work on paying customers. Not only do we teach the practical skills in barbering, but we want to teach you how to build your business as a barber. You can learn networking and marketing skills as well as resume building and interviewing skills.

You can start by learning the important fundamentals to the art of barbering. Then the program moves to learning more about industry expectations and how to take your future by the shears by mastering not only your craft, but business and marketing skills will empower your earning potential. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can get practical experience in our student clinic. Here you can provide REAL services on REAL clients, dialing into the precision that is needed to become a successful Barber. Additionally, Avalon offers experiences such as interactions with industry leaders and guest artists.
