Required to earn a barbering license

Nevada barbering requirements are in line with what you’ll find in most other states. Before submitting your licensing application, you must successfully finish a 1500-hour training program through an approved barbering school. You must pay $15 to request an application and $100 to sign up for written and practical exams. You then receive an initial barbering license that is good for up to two years.

Education Details

As a barbering student, you learn exclusively about male hair care, styles, and facial hair maintenance. You may learn how to use tools that are commonly used in barber shops, including razors, scissors, and trimmers. Instructors teach you important hair care terminology and techniques. In addition, you should focus on facial hair styles. This involves learning proper shaving techniques and practicing them extensively.

Average yearly salary for barbering in Nevada

Job growth in the field of barbering is very similar to job expansion expected in the cosmetology field as a whole. From 2016 through 2026, CareerOneStop anticipates an 7% increase in barbering jobs. Barbers often earn a base salary in addition to the tips they receive from customers. The average salary for a Nevada barber is $22,390 per year (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2020). The more experience you get and the bigger your client base becomes, the more money you may be able to earn.

Working as a barber is very different from working as a cosmetologist. First, the client base is entirely different. Barbers, whether they work in salons or barber shops, work entirely with male clients. Appointments tend to be slightly shorter than average, as male clients often want to get done as quickly as possible. You may spend your days reaching out to new customers or scheduling follow-up appointments with your existing customer base. It's important to be comfortable with your customers in this setting. Barber shops tend to be fairly laid-back, often allowing customers to watch television or sports while getting their hair needs met.
