Find a Barber School in Atlanta

Now that Atlanta ranks among America’s top 10 largest cities with 5.7 million residents, its men’s hairstyles reflect the diversity of other large cities (Wikipedia, 2017). Thanks to a corresponding renaissance in traditional barber shops, Atlanta barber schools are training a new generation of barbers in men’s haircuts, styling, and coloring as well as straight razor shaves and beard and mustache trims.


Finding the right Barber School

Like the idea of helping local men look and feel their best but aren’t sure how to become a barber? That’s OK! For your convenience, we’ve compiled a list of Atlanta area barber colleges below. If you’re wondering “is there a barber school near me?” the list can probably answer that question too. Take a look, and request more information from the schools that appeal to you. Once you’ve narrowed your choices to two or three, it’s worth your time to schedule a barber school campus tour.

Touring a barber school can give you multisensory information that a brochure can’t provide. For example, you’ll hear and start to familiarize yourself with industry terms. You’ll see instructors and students using the tools of the trade, including combs, clippers and straight razors. You may also see students learning new techniques that pique your interest. And you’ll smell the subtly masculine shampoos, moisturizers, and related personal care products barbers use and eventually recommend to clients. Compare your experiences, and chances are one school will stand out among the others as the best place for you to learn.
