It is our mission to provide an engaging and effective program of study for students, by helping them tap into their creative potential and grooming them to be well rounded professionals, in their pursuit of a career as a professionally licensed barber or master hair care specialist.
This Is How Our Story Began
Top of the Line Barber College was founded in 2005 by Anthony Gibson. The school was founded out of necessity. There was a lack of truly qualified applicants to fill open positions in his barbershop and beauty salon respectively. Mr. Gibson decided it was necessary to establish a school to ensure he would have applicants, who were properly trained, to fill any future openings in his businesses.
The SC Board of Barber Examiners granted Mr. Gibson approval to open a school in August 2005 and thus, Top of the Line Barber College was established. The first class of students enrolled in September 2005. The school and the barbering program were granted accredited status in 2013 by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts & Sciences (NACCAS).
In April 2018, Mr. Gibson officially passed the torch to the next generation. His son Rashun and daugthers Brittany & Jessica have assumed control of the daily operations of the school. Rashun and Jessica manage the classrooms and the practical clinic, while Brittany manages the business office.
