Barbershops are back and they’re trendier than ever. Since 2013 there’s been a huge resurgence in men’s grooming services. Modern men are more educated than ever about hair and skin services, which means they’re more willing to visit a barber who specializes in men’s grooming.

At Aveda Institute Denver, we now offer a barber program to support this rising trend in barbering. If you’re interested in specializing in sleek, modern cuts and facial hair grooming techniques, this could be the perfect program for you!

What You Can Learn

We’ve designed our program to help prepare students with the essentials they’ll need to know in a barbershop or salon that includes barbering services. In this Aveda-infused curriculum, you can learn:

  • Straight razor shaves
  • Men’s cuts
  • Clipper cuts
  • Grooming and styling for men
  • Face and head shaving
  • Color for men
  • Facials and facial massage
  • Line-ups
  • Razor fades

Barber holds up a mirror to his client.

Program Scheduling

If you’re looking for scheduling flexibility, our barber program is taught Monday-Wednesday from 8:30 am to 6:30 pm. We wanted this program to integrate with busy schedules because we understand that life can be hectic. But that doesn’t mean you need to put your education and future goals on hold.

Personal Benefits

As a barber, you can have the chance to socialize and flex your creative muscles. Every client is different, so there’s always the chance to meet someone new. You’ll also have to tailor your services to each unique request, which is a great way to practice your skills and grow as a creative professional.

If you love meeting and chatting with new people, working as a barber can easily provide the daily socialization you crave.

Career Flexibility

Whether you love the idea of working in a barbershop, or you’re looking to go solo, barbering can offer that type of flexibility. Many barbers choose to become employees at barbershops or salons, while others rent space and work for themselves. Some even set up shop in their own home.

Unlike barbershops of the past, you aren’t limited to one option as a modern-day barber. This form of career flexibility isn’t available for a lot of professions outside the beauty industry, so it’s definitely something to think about as you’re considering our program.
