Class Structure
Instruction is divided between written barber theory and practical skills training.  Barbering concepts are introduced in barber theory classes.  This is done through a combination of lectures, reading assignments, and instructor demonstrations utilizing specifically chosen live subjects.

The practical lab is where students are given the opportunity for hands-on practice of the barbering concepts introduced in barber theory classes.  Mannequins are utilized for practice in most cases; however, in some cases students will be given the opportunity to recruit a live subject to practice certain techniques (e.g. facial, manicure).

Once a student has demonstrated mastery of the barber theory concepts and the practical hands-on applications, then they are eligible to begin practicing on live clients in the practical clinic.
