More than Just a Barbering Academy

Extensive Barbering Curriculum

Since the beginning, Pivot Point Academy has been dedicated to offering education that helps students feel confident and prepared for their future careers. Our 1500-hour barber program was designed to create well-rounded barbers in every aspect.

Go Beyond: Business Training

One of the best parts of becoming a barber is the flexibility you can experience. Many barbers end up being self-employed. That’s why at Pivot Point Academy, you will receive training not only in technical skills but also in business and marketing.

Experienced Instructors

Our award-winning educators focus on prioritizing your success during and after school. These experienced professionals are trained with our proprietary Mindful Teaching Professional Development product, enabling them to bring their real-world experience to you.

Did you know that over one-third of barbers are self-employed? At our barber college, you can learn what it takes to pursue barber certification and take control of your schedule, your book of clients, and more! Our barber school breaks up lessons into three fundamental sections:

You start with the basics, practice with mannequins, and move toward providing actual services to clients under the supervision of licensed professionals. This includes business development lessons through our dedicated Prosper U classes. Whether you want to find the right barbershop for you or start your own independent business, a Pivot Point Academy education can help you on the path to success.


I recently attended...Pivot Point Academy to tighten up my skills. Great instructors that facilitate a collaborative learning experience that is not only based on concepts - but also hands-on practice to help enhance your skills.

Attending Pivot Point Academy for my cosmetology training was the single most important career decision I've made. From the strongest in fundamentals to a vast network, I wouldn't be the traveling artist I am today. In one word. Blessed!
