In the academy, Randolph is finally going forward with her hair plans. She enrolled in January, with a little bit of experience.
"Actually, I started practicing on my brother when I was 12. I gave him a military line that was my first haircut. His line was way back here, so he had to salute far," she said, laughing.
When they graduate, with more than 1,500 hours of training and classroom work, they'll fill barber shops in Mt. Juliet, along Nolensville Road and places where competition isn't as high as it is along Jefferson Street.
They learn all styles, all cultures and all conditions.
And customers are welcome to get a trim, too. You don't have to be a barber in training to sit in the chair.
After a quick wash and a wrap in rollers, you're on your way. The same goes for the new and training barbers.
"If I can help someone build their image, I'm building their confidence. And I know I'm building their performance. So I'm making a difference in the community," Randolph said.
If you're willing to give them a shot, an adult haircut at the barber academy, located at 26th and Jefferson streets, goes for $7.
Like any salon, the more complicated your hair the more expensive it will be.
