1000 Hour Barber Styling Program


The objective of the Barber Styling program is to train students in 
all aspects of the hairstyling profession. The student will acquire  
skills in haircutting, tapering, trimming of the beard and mustaches, 
scalp treatments, facials, shampooing, honing and stropping, shop management, 
light therapy, hair coloring and permanent waving.  Students who complete 
their program will be eligible for entry-level positions in the barber/styling 
field, or choose to assume positions as assistant barber instructors, 
manufacturer's representative, or hair colorist. 
All students must complete their training in 1.5 times the scheduled course 
length or they will be dismissed from the program.  For example: A student 
contracted for 1000 hours must complete within 1500 scheduled hours or s/he 
will be dismissed. A student contracted for 500 hours must complete within 
Cosmetology Credit        
Candidates that have already completed 1000 hours of instruction in a 
Massachusetts cosmetology school and/or hold a Massachusetts cosmetology 
license are eligible for a 500 hour credit towards the 1000 hour Barber 
Styling requirement. This will cut their tuition cost in half, to $6850.00. 
Tool kit and registration fees still apply. 
Program Starting Dates     
The Barber Styling day and evening programs start the first Tuesday of

3. Students may arrive and sign in as early as 8:45 AM and stay as late as 9PM to make up for missed time.  A maximum credit is 8 hours per day according to the Board of Cosmetology and Barbering.

For example: a test given in the month of January must be made up or retaken by the end of February. The failed grade or a grade of "0" will be applied towards his cumulative average.
