Why we exist


Hair school and Barber school – the way it should be

Reforming Beauty Education

Who we are

We were just like you. We had our day 1. We craved more. More challenges, more resources, more fulfillment. Most of all we wanted to make more of a difference. So we took matters into our own hands and never looked back. After a decade of training apprentices and operating our own successful salon and barbershop, we founded Eikonic Academy. It was out of necessity – we realized that the current models of post-secondary beauty education were not preparing students to be successful in the beauty industry.

Hair School the way it should be.

Traditional models of Education and Apprenticeships have become inadequate. Our radically relevant hairstyling and barbering program gets you working fast
