The barbering and hairstyling industry needs more talent, interactions and technical education. Traditional models of beauty education and apprenticeships are not preparing students for an industry that is constantly evolving. So, we decided to be the change that we wanted to see.
Eikonic Academy is for people who desire to do fulfilling, creative and meaningful work. It’s for artistic inspiration, networking and achieving your personal best. Design your future. Challengers do.
Eikonic full-time alumni do much more than just train to enter a new career in barbering and hairstyling — they excel. By applying new skills and ways of thinking, they become leading artists and salon and barbershop owners of some of the most reputable salons and barbershops. From here, you can go anywhere!
We are a family and a creative community of the brightest minds in the industry, coming together to develop and inspire the next generation of future beauty professionals.
Our belief is that barbers and hairstylists possess the power to change the world by helping people look and feel great. We inspire our future professionals to be well-rounded in technical, interpersonal and entrepreneurial skills.
Eikonic students will always be a part of our family where our motto is #peoplematter. Our approach to education is based on collaboration, communication and creativity and is taught on interactive tablet technology instead of using old-school textbooks. Your professional journey starts with a strong educational foundation combined with hands-on learning in real-life clients experiences.
