Editor's Description

The Buckner Barber School is another that primarily offers training in barbering but does also have a little something for licensed cosmetologists, too. If you've already got your cosmetology license, the school's Cosmetology Operator to Class A Barber crossover program will take the skills you've previously learned in your career and build upon them so that you can also gain licensure as a barber, too.

The program takes around two and a half months (300 hours) to complete, which is less than half the time needed to gain a barber qualification on the traditional (1,000 hours) pathway. The crossover program also makes it much less expensive to become a barber—it costs around a third of the price to take the crossover program compared to the standard barbering course. Several scholarships are also available to those who qualify.
