What is a Master Barber ?
"What makes a Master Barber License different from a Standard or Restricted Barber License? In most cases, you’ll find that experience, expertise and quality of service set the regular barbers apart from the master barbers. They have mastered most men’s hairstyles and hair services, and have a more proficient level of skill in the barbering arts and sciences. Also, standard barber technicians may not be trained, licensed and permitted to perform certain services, whereas a Master Barber is."
At DashStylists we wouldn't give a very different definition : generally speaking, it’s the level of experience and skill that distinguishes master barbers from standard barbers and the fact that a Master Barber masterizes more techniques.
Once a person receives their standard barber license, they can begin to train as a master barber. Master barber courses are available at barber schools or beauty schools. However, requirements for the master barber license vary from state to state. In some states, obtaining a master barber license simply requires a person to have been a licensed barber for a certain number of years, say 15 or 20. In other states, after just a few years of possessing a standard license, a barber may obtain master barber status by passing a state licensing exam. And in yet other states, a barber must complete a certain number of ongoing advanced training hours and/or complete an apprenticeship under another master barber.
And being a Barber or a Master barber you can practice your craft in a barbershop or you can be a barber traveling to customers.
