I had my hair cut by Florian yesterday and I’m very happy with the job she did. I got a trim, a bit of layering on the bottom, and a face frame for $9. She was very professional and gave me some suggestions as I only had a rough idea of what I wanted. When her instructor came to check her work at the end, she told her her work was beautiful. I was a walk-in and I didn’t have to wait very long.

Editor's Description

Austin's Academy of Hair Design, which is also home to the BeVelle Barber School, believes "students are at the heart of any great school." An alumna named Savannah said she "chose to attend The Academy because I loved the family-like atmosphere!"

Their cosmetology program takes seven to 12 months to complete, depending on if you attend full- or part-time, and covers topics from hair styling to eyelash extensions and tinting.

You could instead complete a barber program in that same amount of time.

If you have a cosmetology license, you could enroll in their cosmo-barber crossover program. This 300-hour program trains students to work as cosmetologists and barbers.

They don't forget about their students after they leave, instead spotlighting them on their blog. In addition to working in typical cosmetology and barber positions, graduates may become business owners, perform services for celebrities, transition into careers in medical esthetics, and more.
