American Institute of Beauty, Inc. is proud to be Florida’s largest barber school. We opened our doors in 2003 to provide hands-on training for a future career in barbering to students of all walks of life. Our program is known locally as a tried and true program for becoming a professional barber.

Welcome to Our Campus

Our campus in St. Petersburg, FL, is 11,000 square feet and houses over 50 mirrored training stations. Here students can practice their craft while taking appointments with real guests. Whether you choose to enroll in our Barbering, Cosmetology, or Full Speciality program, you can learn in a hands-on environment created to inspire and encourage you. Your professional-level surroundings were carefully curated to make it feel like you’re really working in a shop or salon.

Barbering Beauty Education

Between our two locations, the St. Petersburg campus of American Institute of Beauty, Inc. is most well-known for its barbering program. The program takes most students about nine months to complete and is designed to allow you to become a licensed barber in the state of Florida. To help our students succeed, we have brought in talented barbering educators with more than 40 years of combined experience. We provide flexible scheduling and financial aid to those who qualify to help meet your needs.

Learn Cosmetology

Cosmetology is the perfect way for you to get your footing in the beauty world, and our goal is to help you get the foundation you need to succeed! Our cosmetology program can teach you about many kinds of styles, techniques, and tricks to become a talented cosmetologist. The program also covers basics about skin and nails in addition to covering hair. Cosmetology is the ideal way to learn it all in the beauty industry!

Learn Full Specialist

The Full Specialist program at American Institute of Beauty, Inc. is designed to allow aspiring beauty professionals get the training in skin and nails that they crave as quickly as possible. The program omits teaching hair so that students can drill down into what they are most passionate about and start making their mark on the industry sooner. Contact us to learn more about how you can get started on your future today!

Diversity is Empowering

Our instructors bring a variety of backgrounds and skill sets to our classrooms. Each educator has years of experience, and many of them are still barbers or other beauty professionals who run or work in local shops. The success of our staff allows them to teach our students what they are learning in the industry every day.

The Extras at AIB

As a part of our curriculum, we offer demonstrations to our students from outside industry influencers. Our St. Petersburg campus houses a specially designed stage area for these types of demonstrations and educational opportunities. In addition to technical and practical skills, our students are exposed to training on the business side of their professions. Marketing, networking, financial planning, and more are all taught at AIB.

The Barber Battle

AIB is happy to be the host of the annual Barber Battle. Each year in the spring we extend an invitation to barbering schools across the state to come and compete. Students go head to head in a battle of skills and showmanship. In the past trophies and notoriety have been awarded to the barber who came out on top.

In 2017, we were excited to have celebrity barber, Darrin Lyons host with us. This is an opportunity that we offered exclusively to those attending the Barber Battle at AIB.

A Local Hotspot

Our campus is located in the Big Lots Plaza on the west coast of Florida. You can easily travel to us using U.S. Highway 19, I-275, or I-75. We are conveniently located near Pinellas Park, Seminole, Clearwater, and Largo. Tampa is also just a short distance away. A PSTA bus stop is just a few steps away from our front door if you’re looking to commute using public transportation.
