  • I was excited to enroll in the crossover Barber Program. I was required to first have a valid cosmetology license as 900 hours from my cosmetology training rolled over to the Barber Program. The cosmetology education received at DR made the Barber program very easy. I now have both my Cosmetology and Barbers licenses. I professionally practice and teach within both curriculums.

    The entire staff is knowledgeable, encouraging, and refreshing. Each Instructor’s passion and commitment to their craft encouraged me to go farther. I am multi-licensed and now proud owner of Catina’s Tranquil Garden. This is an amazing industry!

  • My journey started with the Manicuring program. My second year I graduated from the Instructors program, on a full scholarship. In my third year of study, I completed the Esthetics program. All my needs exceeded my expectations. As a current staff member, I work with a team of exceptional educators. I am now able to give back to my students what was given to me.

    V. Eenigenburg

    I was referred to Don Robert’s from a successful Don Robert’s graduate and am currently enrolled in the esthetics program. I thrive on the relaxation energy, essential oils, and massage. I enjoy helping all my clients relax and enjoy the moment. At graduation, I look forward to a new and very different career change.

  • In life you get what you invest. At DR, my instructors didn’t meet me half way, they met me the whole way. I gave my education 100% of my everything; desire and effort. This school is for serious minded individuals who want to thrive in the beauty industry. I worked hard and earned the Choice Scholarship. My training allowed me to obtain my license; one week out of school I opened my own suite/Loft Salon and Suites-Jade on The Set. I am able to book my own hours around the needs of my family.

    C. Lucas

    My educational journey at Don Roberts began in cosmetology and continued in the instructor’s program. Since I had the cosmetology curriculum fresh in my brain, I was then able to crossover 900 hours from the cosmetology program and into the barber’s crossover program and then only had to complete 600 hours for the barbering program. At a more accelerated rate, I was then able to pass my state test for barbering. The crossover program was such a great way to fast-track my learning path.
