Learn More About Our Cosmo/Barber Program

One of the most exciting parts of the beauty industry is the variety of different services you can learn. Our cosmo/barber program is for students wanting to learn the art of cosmetology and the technical skill of barbering.

Students will start by learning up-to-date techniques and theory in a classroom setting. Once students have completed a certain amount of classroom hours, they’ll advance to the clinic floor where they will get the opportunity to build their skills and confidence on clients who come to our student salon. Our instructors assist students while working on clients to prepare them for a real salon setting.

At CAofB we’re one of the leading beauty schools in Orange County and have been educating those passionate about beauty for over 50 years. We understand your passion and want to help you reach your career goals.
