Interested in Apprenticing with us?
We partner with the Division of Apprenticeship Standards in California to provide an alternative option for prospective barbers who are more interested in learning the trade 'hands on' in a barbershop from one of our Master Barbers instead of the traditional barber school classroom method.
Fresh out of Barber School?
Even better. We offer an "Intern" level experience for those still honing the basic skills of barbering. Work at your own pace with your own clients, and ask for help when you need it. We offer regular training classes for our barbers several times a month for you to continue to develop your skills and advance.
Looking for a new barbershop to call home?
Great! We are always interested in meeting like-minded professionals, and always welcome inquiries for available chairs.
