“I recently graduated and I feel really prepared for my stateboard test! Ms. Vee and Mrs. Cierra did a wonderful job making sure I learned all the basics and real like situations! Ms. Linda also did a great job keeping in touch during distance learning to make sure I stayed on top of my hours! I would definitely recommend.”
“I went to salon success to become a licensed nail tech through my course of training I loved it so much at the Redlands campus by far amazing and neat it ended up making me want to come back and become a esthetician because of the such amazing teachers specially Mrs.K. Great choice and I would highly recommend”
Attending Salon Success was great because I got to learn a lot more about the manicuring field and grow my skills as a Nail artist. My favorite part was meeting my classmates and getting to learn from them also. Beauty School was everything I expected and i’m happy I made this investment for my career.

While both cosmetology and barbering deal with hair care, hair cutting, hair styling, and hair coloring, the main difference is that barbers primarily work on men’s hair. A barber’s education focuses more on men’s hair needs, including facial hair grooming and shaving. Barbering does not include nail care, skin care, or make-up lessons, which are typically covered in a cosmetology program.
The cost of our barber training program is:
Total estimated charges equal $16,140.
