Over the last decade or so, we’ve seen a huge increase in the interest in barbering and men’s grooming. While barbers have been around for literally hundreds of years, the modern barbershop is having a “moment”.
A career in barbering can allow you to express your creative side while showing off your technical skills. Whether you’re designing a trendy, textured fade, or helping a client maintain a beard, this is a career for creative, detail-oriented people.
Xenon Academy’s barber program was designed to prepare you to not only sit for the state board exam but to give you the confidence you need to pursue a successful career. We’ve earned our reputation in the beauty and barbering industry. We’re here to help you do the same.
Once you’ve mastered the basics, you will get practical experience in our student shop. Here you provide REAL services on REAL clients dialing into the precision that is needed to become a successful barber. Additionally, Xenon Academy offers experiences such as interactions with industry leaders, guest artists, and shop tours.
Xenon Academy utilizes the Pivot Point® Fundamentals Learn About Barbering (LAB) curriculum. 24/7 online access to learning materials, technique videos, and quizzes support your educational experience. This learning curriculum provides a smooth, blended learning experience focused on preparing students to sit for their licensure exams and jumpstart their careers.
At Xenon Academy, we hold ourselves to high standards to create a safe space for everyone. With a focus on transparency and professionalism, our school does not tolerate bullying, spreading misinformation, or financial dishonesty of any kind.

Xenon Academy’s barber program was designed to provide a balance of education and experience. You can flex your creative muscles in our classrooms and our student shop. Not only do we teach the practical skills in barbering, but we provide education in networking and marketing, resume building and interviewing, and customer service and relations.
Our 1800-hour course is offered at our Omaha campus. Classes are held Tuesday-Friday from 8:45 am to 4:30 pm. There are no classes Mondays or weekends.
We understand that enrolling in beauty school is an investment in yourself and sometimes that investment can feel overwhelming. That’s why we offer a variety of financial aid options to students who qualify.
We want to provide ways for our students to study what they love. If you want to learn more about our financial aid options, then contact us to find out how you can get started with the financial aid process.

It has honestly been Great being a part of Xenon Academy. I transferred from another cosmetology school half way through my program because I found that Xenon was more about teaching ethics and professionalism not just as a school but as a business. I have learned so much more than I ever imagined being here from all of the educators and having multiple programs to consider. I want to thank all the educators for teaching and coaching me with all of their professional knowledge in this industry. I will be very successful now that I am a Xenon Graduate. I highly recommend Xenon Academy in Grand Island Nebraska and Omaha.
