Editor's Description

Though primarily focused on barbering, this Academy in Irving is an ideal location for cosmetologists who want to expand their skill base, too. The school offers flexible hours and schedules (including taking up to 50% of the course online) and is situated in a convenient location near Dallas, right on local transit routes.

The school's 300-hour cosmetology crossover program is for licensed cosmetologists who want to level up their hair, beard, and mustache game by taking on additional barbering qualifications. By taking a crossover program, you cut out a lot of the time, trouble, and expense of regular barbering licensure and can start working much quicker than those on a traditional pathway.

The school gets favorable reviews from its students, such as this one featured on its testimonials page: "If this ain't the dopest!!! But, seriously...it's an excellent place to live and learn your trade!"
