Our History


Our Story

Founded in 1988, Mid Cities Barber College has been in operation for over three decades for the purpose of training and preparing individuals seeking a new career in the professional field of barbering. 

Established by Mr. & Mrs. Cano, they offer a combined 94 years of experience in the hairstyling industry. This has enabled them the opportunity to provide the student with a complete educational training program that promotes professionalism, ethics, and standards for a rewarding future. 

We have a reputation of not limiting our students to focus only on one type of hair. We strive to educate and train our students’ diversity in all hair types.

Our Mission

Our Mission at Mid-Cities Barber College is to provide a complete training program that allows the students to obtain the necessary skills and successfully pass the Texas licensure examination to practice the profession as a Barber Stylist (which includes students from the Cosmetology Operator to Class A Registered Barber program), or Barber Instructor. We believe through our program that our students will be completely prepared and accomplished leaders within the Community and Barbering Industry.
