Barber School in Provo, Utah

People who live in Provo, Utah, enjoy beautiful mountain views and a culture centered on higher education and outdoor sports. With several prestigious colleges in Provo, there is a large influx of college students throughout the year.

Whatever brought them to Provo, they have this in common: They all want to look good.

The Provo campus of Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes is in the thriving downtown area. Our barber school attracts full- and part-time students who want to learn professional hair design and pursue a beauty industry career. Our outstanding program provides flexibility for students with family and other obligations.

When we designed the curriculum for our barber school program, we went to one of the leading Aveda-trained barbers in the U.S. That’s why our students learn principles and techniques that make a difference in their daily work as barbers. We also make sure they have plenty of experience with clients who make appointments or simply walk into our student salon and spa for services. That’s where Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes students from all the Provo programs take care of clients using their new-found expertise in wellness and beauty practices.

Our Goal

One of the main goals of our barber school program is to help our students attract male clientele. Everybody wants to access beauty services today, and modern spas and salons don’t exclude any clients. Men are coming to salons and women are visiting barber shops. Learning barbering skills allows both beauty professionals and students new to the beauty industry to broaden their offerings. The kit provided with the program contains professional-grade tools you will use for years to come.

This type of training is also a good way to find your way in a busy industry. Barber shops are becoming more popular and many of our students want to become business owners or work independently. Training at Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes strives to provide students with expanded options for creative occupations in the beauty industry.
