New Barbering Expansion Opportunity

The Barber Expansion Opportunity at Crave Beauty Academy provides barbering graduates the chance to return to school and complete their cosmetology education in a fraction of the time a full program would take. The barbering expansion opportunity is only 500 hours long, which can take around three months for full-time students to complete. This opportunity is designed to build on the things that licensed cosmetologists should already know, which is why it only takes 500 hours to complete. At the end of the class, students should be able to sit for the cosmetology licensing exam and expand the services they can offer for their clientele!

What You Can Learn

Cosmetology and barbering programs share many similar topics, such as chemistry, pathology, health & sanitation, and more. Cosmetology programs tend to focus more on hair styling and coloring for women, while barbering is more focused on services for men. Here are a few of the things you can learn during the barbering expansion opportunity in greater depth:

Cut & Style For Women

Barbering programs usually go over hair cutting and styling basics for men, but a cosmetology program typically takes that education to a deeper level for both men and women. Since licensed barbers spend most of their time working with male clients, it’s important to expand on how you can provide services for female clients! Men’s services tend to focus on the use of clippers and facial hair grooming, but women’s services can be dramatically different. Does she want just a trim, or something more complex like an asymmetrical bob? Cutting bangs is also an important aspect of cosmetology that people generally don’t consider, but bangs literally frame someones face and can make a huge difference in a haircut. Many women also want styling, curling, perms, and more from their stylist. This barber expansion opportunity is designed to equip you with the skills to provide those services.

Hair Color

Hair color is more prevalent among women now than ever before. The barber expansion opportunity is designed to help students learn the basics of hair color so that they can provide services such as the popular balayage, hair painting, root touch ups and more. Some cosmetologists like the hair coloring process so much, they choose to specialize in it! Mastering and specializing in a certain service means you get to do way more of it, and opens opportunities at specialty and boutique salons.

Additional Services

In addition to covering women’s hair services, cosmetology is designed to provide basic training in other services such as manicures, pedicures, and esthetics treatments. This can help you to become a one-stop shop for all of your clients’ beauty needs! Learning these things can help you explore other services you might enjoy, and it can drastically expand what you can offer to your clients.
