For The Love Of Barbering
When seeking a definition of “barbering,” the words “cut,” “trim,” “shave,” and similar others are first to appear. But what also appear are the words “art” and “science.”
The Latin word “barba” means “beard,” but today’s barbering professionals attend to so much more: Haircuts, specific styling techniques, shaved-in designs, facial hair shaping, beard shaving, and trimming, not to mention the mastery of the tools required for these tasks. It’s a dynamic and exciting field.
A Study From Pivot Point Academy Barber Students
Most Pivot Point Academy students are enrolled because of a love for the craft. A recent survey showed that a full 50% of respondents, with varying degrees of experience, cited a “passion for hair cutting and styling.” Others acknowledged their respect and interest for the industry, a talent toward hair artistry, family familiarity & encouragement, and a zeal for customer service.
Pivot Point Academy’s main attraction to prospective students is overwhelmingly its stellar reputation: “the Harvard of hair,” as one student put it. From the faculty to the curriculum and everything in between, Pivot Point Academy is the gold standard for training and education. The fact that Pivot Point Academy offers a best-fit schedule, as well as financial aid and other support, is the second-most cited benefit to incoming students.
