Barbering is about so much more than cutting hair. With the right training and state licensure, you can build a career that begins behind the chair and is under your own control. If you’re ready to put in the work, barbering can cater to your creative passions as well as your dreams to build something bigger as an entrepreneur running your own business. World Class Academy of Beauty Careers is where you can find the comprehensive training you need to sit for the Florida state barbering exam and launch your career.
“As a two time graduate and stylist of World Class Academy of Beauty Careers, I have learned so much and continue to learn more every day…” – Tercell G.
Our barbering program combines theory and practical instruction to prepare students to provide services to the public. You can expect to explore an array of styling skills as well as the business side of the industry. Many of our students join us with an existing passion and talent for styling hair—we provide the foundational skills and knowledge needed to elevate those talents to a professional level.
Because the next step in pursuing your career after you graduate will be sitting for the Florida State Board exam, our goal is to prepare you to face this challenge with confidence and poise.
