What Is Barbering?

Barbering is a traditional art that has been carried down for centuries. Many modern barbers use the same tools and techniques today that were around hundreds of years ago. While styles have changed, the core principles of barbering remain the same. In order to be a successful barber you must have precision, skill, a steady hand, and a sharp eye for detail. Barbers specialize in the art of cutting, trimming, and styling hair, mustaches, and beards. Barbers cater their services to masculine hair styling. There has been a recent rise in popularity in students practicing the art of barbery, leading to a rise in demand for more barbers.

Why Should I Attend Barber School?

According to NationalBarbers.org:

If you wanted to be a chef in a nice restaurant, you would attend culinary school to get the proper training and learn all the prerequisites, before applying. If you wanted to be a business titan, you would go to school and choose a major in your desired field of practice.

This all goes for a career in barbering, too.  

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), every state mandates that a barber must complete barber school and become licensed in order to practice in that state. If you don’t go to school to undergo the necessary training in barbering, you cannot legitimately work in this field. Be advised every state has slightly different requirements, so read up on yours before doing anything else!

OccupationalLicensing.com indicates that barbering is the “fourth most heavily regulated occupation among moderate-income occupations,” when compared to other types of occupational licenses.

This means that there is absolutely no way to work around this requirement.

If you want a barber career, you must go to school to earn a license.
