Wahl Barber Academy Grand Opening!


We are excited to announce the launch of the first Wahl Barber Academy in Chicago, IL! In partnership with Pivot Point Academy, the Wahl Barber Academy will equip future barbers with the skills needed to perform at the industry's highest levels.

Located near O'Hare Airport and easily accessed from the CTA blue line, the Wahl Barber Academy has assembled a team of leading licensed instructors who demonstrate technical skill and the ability to inspire and motivate students. Denise Provenzano oversees faculty recruitment with Pivot Point Academy's Master Barber & Lead Educator Ken Washburn and School Director Michelle Lamantia.

In addition to offering world-class education for future barbers, the academy will serve as an advanced training center, hosting educational opportunities for industry professionals and Wahl's global team of educators.  We are so excited to bring next level education to the industry.
