A Diverse Education for Barbers

Metro Barber Academy offers a truly diverse, well-rounded education for individuals studying to become barbers and men’s stylists. Our barber school focuses on multicultural haircuts, including temp fades, crew cuts, mohawks, and other traditional cuts, as well as eyebrow arching, shaving, and facial services. Since 2013, Metro Barber Academy has been serving the greater Harrisburg area and influencing a new generation of barbers. We teach people not only how to be master barbers, but also to become upstanding business people. Throughout the year, we entertain speakers on a variety of topics, including accounting, law, and other necessary resources for establishing your own barber shop. Metro Barber Academy is also active in the community, hosting an annual Community Day every year. This event gives back to the community with free haircuts and giveaways for kids going back to school. This is a great opportunity to support our area, as well as show off our students’ training.
