    positive review  I took my three boys to American Barber Academy for haircut on Wednesday evening, it was my first time , as we walked in, we were welcomed by Janeli, Don and Kelly with Carlos as the teacher, they were so kind, professional and patient , my youngest boy 6 years old was with Kelly, he wanted to play with his hand held gadget and not so focused on his haircut, Kelly went above and beyond to give the boy a beautiful haircut! Don asked me and my 14 years old more than few times if we were pleased with his work, what a caring man!! Janeli gave my 12 years old the " best haircut he'd never had before" said my son!!! for the prices they charge and the care, compassion and times they spend on my boys, you bet this place will be my to-go for haircuts .... thank you Janeli, Don, Kelly and teacher Carlos!!!!

    5 star review  I graduated from American Barber Academy on March 2nd and I can honestly say that I was fully prepared coming out of school for a full time job as a barber. This school was fantastic and taught me everything I needed to know and more. I met so many new people, made tons of new friends and connected with so many different people. I highly recommend this school to anyone interested in becoming a barber!

    positive review  I just recently graduated from American Barber Academy and I have nothing but good things to say! First I’ll start off with I’m not young I was 36 starting and 37 when I finished, I was so scared and nervous to try taking on a new career that I have no skill in and being my age. I quickly came to realize if you put the time and effort with the help from the wonderful instructors who go above and beyond to make the experience of becoming a barber a wonderful and fun one. The atmosphere is very fun and inviting no matter if your 7 or 77, I know as a student I appreciated all the clients coming in from young to old to get the practice and experience for real world situations and it was fun building relationships with a lot of them. If you are thinking of getting a haircut this is a wonderful place to go I never seen anyone leave with a bad cut! I personally let a lot of the students give me a cut and couldn’t be happier so what’s cooler than helping out someone to get where they want to go while you get what you want and for $7 it’s a win win for everyone! If you are thinking of becoming a student American Barber Academy IS THE PLACE to go!!! You will not find better teachers my teacher Bryheem is just a wonderful person all around as well as the rest of the teachers, George the owner is fantastic and does above and beyond to help you on your journey to become a barber and I can’t leave out Mrs. Lacey who is the director but she is so much more being a licensed cosmetologist you will learn way beyond being just the average barber. Oh and I can’t leave out Eida the receptionist and so much more she is the glue holding all the small details together seeing her smiling face and wonderful personality everyday just puts the cherry on top! So all and all wether you need a haircut or you want to give the haircuts Go To AMERICAN BARBER ACADEMY you will not regret it!!!! ~Joshua Weaver

    5 star review  I had moved here last week, as I've web searched for a decent barbershop close by, nevertheless I came across ABA as the staff had welcomed me with great, professional approach which i loved because off hand they made me feel welcomed. I had a young man cut my hair, which my hair wasn't long to begin with. I explained to him what i wanted done, and i must say the end result blew me away. They young man took his time, asked his staff questions as if he was honest he needed some guidance as i understood and didnt mind because the outcome was definitely worth sitting in the chair for the duration of time he spent on cutting my hair! Must i say the price was very sufficient! !! Ill definitely go back and highly recommend ABA to others! Thanks guys and good luck!

Many instructors on site helping the students strive to get a great education while giving a great haircut at the same time to the clients. They have a loyalty program so if you get so many haircuts you earn a free one as well as specials during the week (free shampoo or double stamps on loyalty card). I will recommend and keep coming back for sure.

    positive review  Just graduated from American Barber academy and I must say this is a great place to get your skills up to becoming a master barber. When I first started going over there I knew a little. I was cutting inside people’s homes or in my house. I ddnt know how to do certain haircuts and didn’t know how to use shears. Now that I finally graduated from there program there is no cut out there that I can’t do. My shear cuts are amazing and can cut all types of hair with no hesitations. My confidence level went from not sure if I was ready for the barbershop to being able to cut at the barbershop and cutting with the skilled barbers with ease at mind. Thank you AMERICAN BARBER ACADEMY for teaching me everything I needed to know to enhance my barbering skills and also learning about male and female hair down to the scientific level. Now I can cut, color,style,perm women’s hair as well which is needed in the modern day barbershop. The instructors are amazing people that actually care about the barbering field and are very skilled at what they do. Their level of expertise is phenomenal and are always willing to help you out whenever you have any type of questions or have trouble performing certain tasks. I always say “your only as good as the person who trains you “ and my instructor that I had was Bryheem. I must say he is an amazing guy. Always positive and is extremely professional. You can tell he has the passion for teaching and loves to help out whenever you need him. He has such an amazing personality. I will definitely definitely be visiting him at his barbershop called brotherly love. Thanks American barber academy for everything you taught me and I definitely recommend anyone who is serious about taking there barbering to the next level. George your an amazing guy. you have everything planned out very well and hopefully I will be working with you in the near future. God bless you all and once again THANK YOU 🙏🏽
