• About Barbering

    This class will introduce students to the barbering profession. If a student is considering a career in the barbering profession, the knowledge gained in this class will provide an advantage upon the student entering a Barber College. The program is designed for students to attend their full junior and senior years; by which they will receive 750 class hours or half of the hours needed to take a Barber Exam to obtain a Barber’s License. By dual enrolling in a Barber College, the 750 hours earned in this program will be accepted and go towards the remainder of the class hours needed to sit for a Barber Exam.

    There are four levels of Barbering available.  Barbering I is a morning-only course while Barbering II, Barbering III, and Barbering IV are PM-only courses.


  • Industry-Based Certification

    Students earn college hours that count towards the NWLTC Barber Styling Program.  To take the LA State Board of Barber Examiners licensure examination, students would need to complete the additional program course at NWLTC.

    Students have the opportunity to log 300+ hours with the Barbering Board that will earn the IBC '300 Hours of Barbering'.
