Become a Restricted Barber

Our 600-hour barber program is a shorter and more focused training program compared to our typical full-length barber program. It is designed to provide students with the fundamental skills and knowledge needed to become a licensed barber. This program covers essential aspects of barbering, including hair cutting and styling, shaving, beard and mustache grooming, sanitation and safety practices, and basic client communication


Career Options

While not as comprehensive as longer programs, our 600-hour program still offers hands-on training and classroom instruction to prepare students for the state licensing exam. Graduates of this program can expect to be proficient in the core skills required for entry-level positions in the field of barbering. The program may be more suitable for individuals who want to enter the workforce quickly or focus on specific areas of barbering. In Florida, a restricted barber license limits the range of services you can perform compared to a full barber license. While the options for working independently are limited, these are some of the job opportunities that allow you to apply your barbering skills and knowledge within the guidelines of a restricted license. Some potential jobs and roles you can pursue with this credential include:

Restricted vs Master Barber Program

The restricted barber program focuses on fundamental barbering skills, such as basic haircuts and grooming services. Graduates of restricted barber programs obtain a limited barbering license, which restricts them to performing basic services. Restricted barber program graduates may find employment in entry-level positions at barber shops or salons and may choose to pursue further education to become master barbers in the future.

The master barber program typically offers a more extensive curriculum, covering advanced haircutting techniques, styling, and specialized services like hair coloring and chemical treatments. Completing a master barber program qualifies students for a higher-level barbering license, allowing them to perform a wider range of services. Graduates of master barber programs have a broader skill set and may pursue careers in high-end salons, barber shops, or even open their own businesses.
