Barbering Advisory Council



At Syracuse City School District, the two-year Barbering program will prepare you for all careers related to barbering.  Students will have an opportunity to work at a real barber shop, located at the Public Service Leadership Academy at Fowler, to gain hands-on experiences in many aspects of barbering.  These include using people skills as the receptionist to providing services to students, staff and members of the community.  Barbering students will be immersed in the field and gain practical experience.  Through class instruction and working in the salon, students will be prepared for both the New York State written and practical examinations.  Upon completion of the two-year program, students will be issued an application to apply for their temporary license. 

Advisory Council members should have expertise in barbering, cosmetology, marketing and business operation.  Advisory Council Members:
