A comprehensive kit is issued to all students that includes 7 mannequin heads, a textbook package, 2 Clippers, Diamond edge razors, and Sharkfin Shears.

Guest artists, projects and trips are incorporated into the program. Students will visit barbershops locally and will also travel to the International Beauty Show in New York City. Guest artists will give lectures and special demonstrations on live models.

Curriculum projects include creating a timeline of historical events of barbering as a career and its progression into the 21st century. Students also complete a project on infection control.

Advanced classes are offered in clipper cutting techniques and fading. A hands-on workshop is offered to fine-tune fading, blending, and tapering skills. All advanced classes have a separate tuition price and can be taken as a student or a graduate. Job placement services are available to all students upon graduation and all students create an online portfolio on as a showcase of their practical expertise.
