Established in 2017 by the founders of Boardroom Salon for Men, Brighton Barber Institute (BBI) was created to provide continuing education and training for licensed cosmetologists seeking further licensure in the field of barbering.
The new rules adopted by the Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation on December 14, 2011 and which became effective February 1, 2012, includes, among other changes to barbering, a creation of a cross-over license enabling a licensed cosmetology operator to become a Class A Barber after attending an accredited barber school and completing the necessary hours and exams.
Men’s grooming industry has exploded onto the market in the last decade and with it, a large market for licensed barbers. We recognized the need for a barber school dedicated to the specific need for licensed cosmetologists as they embark on their journey to further their tonsorial education and become highly marketable in their career.
To develop every student to be an expert and leader in the industry through empowerment and excellence in education and to prepare them to enter the barbering profession with skills and confidence necessary to join the top companies in the world.
