Barber Certificate Program

About Our Barber Certificate Program - NEW!

Simi Institute's Barber 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.  A culminating state board class will prepare students for the passage of the written and practical California State Board Barber Licensure Exams.  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.  Our Barber Certificate Program can be completed in approximately four levels.  Students must complete all practical operations and a minimum of 1500 course hours for graduation.
