Foundation for Success

The ICU Barbering Program provides the foundation for success in a barbering career by focusing on the following areas:
1. Barber Theory: The foundation of your education is barber theory. You will learn the history of barbering and the technical terminology used by industry professionals. Most importantly, barber theory will introduce the techniques that you will use during your practical skills training.

2. Practical Skills Training: The most important aspect of your education is the practical skills training. As a matter of fact, many prospective students base their decision on which school/program to attend based upon the caliber of the practical skills training.

3. Business Education: We are committed to providing our students with business education classes to ensure that they can monetize the skills they have obtained during their practical skills training. This is achieved through a combination of lectures, business-oriented field trips, and special workshops by financial professionals.
