This is true. SCBC Founder, Leo Price Sr., has been appointed by Governor Jay Nixon to the Missouri Board of Cosmetology and Barber Examiners. This will help ensure that SCBC remains on the cutting edge of all changes requiring barber licensing, thus ensuring a continued stellar success rate helping students obtain licensing.
No it is not difficult and we have a stellar success rate in helping students obtain licensing. Also, we love students who have no prior barbering experience and who question their own ability to become a great barber. Why? Because their humility makes it easy for us to teach them.

The existence of outstanding student loan debt or poor credit does not necessarily disqualify you from attending barber college. We offer private payment plans that can very well allow students with outstanding loan debt or poor credit to attend school. We understand the cycle where no education/skills keeps you from making money, which keeps you in debt, which keeps you working hard, which keeps you from returning to school for additional education/skills, which keeps you without money, etc. Let us help.
The program is designed to last for 8 months. We realize that many students are adults who head their households and may even have a full-time job. So, although we do like to require a consistent steady pace toward graduation, we do offer flexibility to accommodate students’ schedules and can even offer night classes. You should feel comfortable talking to a counselor about how we can work with your busy schedule.

Absolutely! We have great success in helping students identify shops in which to cut after getting their license. We have also helped students start their own barbershops and will offer students one-on-one assistance in designing a business plan to open their own shop(s).
