Become a Part of a Vibrant Social Atmosphere

Barber shops are about so much more than getting groomed. They’re a space for men to come together and socialize. As they receive barbering services, clients and barbers get to catch up and bond about every topic imaginable, from sports, to current events, to what’s going on in their lives. This allows barbers to not only nurture a unique social atmosphere, but also expand their client base.

Get Creative

Each client brings something new when it comes to barbering. Whether they’re looking for a basic cut or a custom design, they will give you the opportunity to show off and test your skills. As male grooming becomes more and more customized and desirable, so too do the services offered by barbers. In fact, some barbers become known for their individual and style, and clients will consciously seek them out to get one of their trademark looks.

Be Your Own Boss

Many people choose to enter the barbering industry because it offers a freedom that few other trades allow. In barbering, you have many different job opportunities, including working within a company, renting a chair in a salon or barber shop, working as a mobile barber, or even opening your own business!

Instill Confidence in People

Perhaps the biggest reason why many people choose to enter the cosmetology and barbering industries is to help people look and feel their best. Changing someone’s appearance is about so much more than just giving them a fresh new beard or updating their hairstyle. It’s about giving them the confidence they need to take on the world, thanks to a renewed sense of themselves and what they’re capable of. Who knows — maybe your client will leave your shop only to find the job or relationship of their dreams!

Establish a Lifelong Career

When you become a barber, you join a multi-billion dollar industry that has a rich history and is only continuing to grow stronger, as men become willing to invest more and more in their appearance. Furthermore, regardless of the economic situation, men will always need to have their hair cut! At Designing Beauty Academy, we’re proud to boast a 100% job placement rate, meaning that virtually all graduates of our programs get a job in their chosen career. When you choose our barber program, you can rest assured that you are starting a stable career that can last you a lifetime.
