“Preparation for state exams A+. Family environment, overall Boise Baber College covered everything and anything a student would use and need after college to pursue their career.”

Bryan B.

“I went to Boise Barber College in 2019 to get a barber license after having a Cosmetology license for 8 years. I wanted to learn how to cut hair like a barber and to shave with a straight razor. The school was beautiful! The instructors were awesome! I learned the basics, onto working on the floor, taking clients, to state board preparation. I felt like I got more than my moneys worth!”
