Pursue the art of barbering.

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.

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.
