Simi Institute's NEW Barber 1,000-Hour Certificate Program teaches the fundamentals of men's hair dressing, skin care, and shaving. Students will complete a series of courses in hairstyling, hair cutting, hair coloring, permanent waving, chemical straightening, men's facials, men's manicures, shaving, and facial hair design. Students will also learn basic business and salon management skills as well as the basics of men's hair replacement. All of our students are provided with a course schedule that allows them to efficiently complete all operations and hour requirements set forth by the California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology. Advanced students will perform a variety of hair, skin, and shaving services in our full-service, on-site salon.
