The Benefits of Learning Cosmetology and Barbering

When you’re considering a future career in the beauty industry, you may be doing research as to what you want to pursue! Possible options include cosmetology, barbering, esthetics, and more. At Collectiv Academy, we offer a course that combines both cosmetology and barbering. Learning both can help you gain new skills, stay competitive in the beauty industry, and offer more services to future clients.

What Can You Learn in Our Curriculum?

The Collectiv curriculum is different from many other local beauty schools. We believe there shouldn’t have to be a choice to learn cosmetology or barbering, when the two practices go hand in hand. A stylist should never have to turn a client away for lack of knowledge, and learning both cosmetology and barbering can help you work with a wider variety of clients.

Our curriculum includes:

  • Salon safety skin, scalp and hair
  • Shampoo and rinses
  • Hair care product knowledge
  • Scalp treatments
  • Hair cutting, razoring cutting
  • Styling and finger waving
  • Introduction to braiding
  • Hair coloring & bleaching
  • Mustache and beard
  • Men’s cutting, clipper cutting
  • & more!

Beauty school can be achievable, which is why we offer both part-time and full-time options for our students. Our 1600 hour program can fit into your busy life, and can be completed in as little as 11 months. If you’re ready to learn more, schedule a tour with us! Getting a feel for our facility, meeting instructors, and witnessing how students learn at Collectiv Academy is a great way to help you decide if we’re the right fit for you.

What Kinds of Clients Can You Work With?

When you picture yourself working in the beauty industry, where do you see yourself? If you’d like to work in a salon, what kind of clients would you like to work with? Learning how to style all lengths of hair, shaving techniques, and facial hair styling can help you work with more clients! Instead of clients having to choose between a salon and a barbershop, they can come to you and feel confident that you’ll be able to help them with their hair.

Working in the beauty industry means that you can also work outside of the salon! There are many careers you could pursue as a beauty professional, including:

  • Working in a spa
  • Product representative
  • TV or movie stylist
  • Celebrity stylist
  • Beauty influencer
  • & more!

Learning more in a comprehensive program can also give you a competitive edge when it comes to job searching! There are a lot of talented professionals in the beauty industry, and the more skills you have can help you stand out.
