Announcement: Exciting News

In April of 2020 we will be relocating to a state of the art 10,000 sq ft facility that will now offer courses for Barbering, Cosmetology, Esthetics, and Instructor Programs.


Over the last 7 years American Barber Academy has successfully graduated hundreds of students through our popular Barber Program. Our graduates are now successfully opening their own or working in established salons and barbershops. Much of our success is attributed to our culture that believes that if our students are not successful, we are not successful. Integrity, Professionalism, and Responsibility are some of the founding principals and that has changed the landscape of our local barber industry and has inspired many successful careers.


Hair care services remains one of the strongest areas of growth in the beauty industry, reports the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, with the overall occupation growing faster than average between 2014 and 2024. We are delighted to share our knowledge and education experience with students that are passionate about beauty and wellness.


A career in Cosmetology, Esthetics and Barbering can be fulfilling and full of opportunities, our past successful graduates are proof.

Expanding our education offerings at our new facility has been in the making for a long time now. We are pleased to soon begin taking applications for students to begin working towards a new career in our new program opportunities. “We look forward to extending our mission to our new students and clients. Our facility will include 12 barber stations, 26 styling stations, 6 manicure and pedicure stations, and 10 Esthetic stations. The public can now enjoy facials, manicures, pedicures, hair color and of course great haircuts for the entire family.


We look forward to our opening day to share with the public a place everyone can enjoy services in our interactive learning environment.
