Find a Barber School in Los Angeles

People watching is practically an LA vocation -- in part because there are so many different looks to take in among the city’s 3.9 million people (Wikipedia, 2017). From glamorous Rodeo Drive to the prestige of Melrose Avenue, professional barber school graduates’ handiwork is everywhere you look. If you’re eager to learn how to become a barber who can create men’s styles from sleek to natural and everything in between, Los Angeles barber schools can help you earn the training you need to succeed.


Finding the right Barber School

If you’re wondering “How do I find a barber school near me?” check out the list of schools we’ve compiled below. Request more information from any that sound interesting, then compare their classes and curriculum against your career goals. Of course, details on paper can’t match a three-dimensional in-person evaluation, which we strongly recommend. Schools are happy to accommodate prospective students with campus tours, so consider scheduling two or three before making your final choice.

Your school choice set the tone for your entire barbering career, so take your time during your LA barber college tour. See the tools of the trade used in a classroom setting. Note the relationship between faculty and students. Your observations will give you well-rounded criteria for deciding which barber school is right for you. Depending on state regulations, you may need special training if you plan to offer some shaving services. Keep that in mind and ask questions on site if you’re interested in developing a subset of specialized barbering skills.

Then, rent some rollerblades and explore the Venice beachfront … or take a yoga class then hike through Runyon Canyon Park. If you’re set on making a career of helping men look their best, Los Angeles offers the ideal backdrop for professionals eager to work and live among style-conscious Californians.
