You can succeed as a professional barber! We noticed other beauty schools not equipping students with the skills they needed to get clients and market their skills. That’s why we created our program to focus on both the technical skills and the business mindset you need to work in a barbershop or to even open your own.
As part of an education at American Barber and Beauty Academy, we prepare future barbers with resume-building skills, interviewing tips, access to local job listings in the Reading area, and more.
If you’ve decided that the barbering industry is for you, you can get started by talking to our admissions department to schedule a tour. On the tour, we can walk you through the admissions process, how to get started, and any questions you have about our program.
