A Cut Above the Rest

Family owned and operated, Moler has been serving the Oakland community and East Bay Area for over 100 years. We are proud of our history and track record of transforming the lives of our students by graduating top-notch barbers, as well as continuing to provide discounted barber services to the Oakland community.

A History of Excellence in Beauty

Since 1910 we have successfully graduated thousands of barbers, and delivered the freshest cuts and styles in the Bay Area. Moler was founded on the principles of customer service, precision, and professionalism. We support our students through hands-on training, comprehensive work experiences, education that is tailored to the California Barber License exam and by ensuring that no matter their situation, students are supported in their learning with access to numerous financial aid programs. Our school and programs are approved by the California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology.

At Moler, we offer courses and educational programs that are sure to meet your needs. We have programs for new students including cosmetology professionals looking to add skills or change fields to barbering, instructor training courses as well as refresher programs for licensed barbers. With many programs to choose from, we are sure there is a program that is right for you.

More Than Just Lessons and Instruction — Get Mentored

Our Beauty Instructors will train you in the core skills that industry employers demand. But they’ll also do something more — they’ll give you the mentorship that will make you even more confident about pursuing your Cosmetology career.

They’ll share their professional experiences (their mistakes and successes), their industry connections, and give you advice on how you can take your Cosmetology training to the next level. And our Beauty Instructors can offer this advice because they’re still actively involved in their own careers and know what it takes to make it in the field.

Hone Your Skills in Our On-Site Salon

You’ll also learn and eventually master a wide-range of Cosmetology skills in our on-site beauty salon. And when you have a question, you’ll be able to turn to one of our talented and passionate instructors who have years of experience under their belt as well as expert knowledge of the latest industry trends.

Moler is Community Focused

Moler believes in giving back to our community by providing discounted barber services to Oakland, San Pablo and Hayward. We host annual backpack drives for elementary school students, coordinate children’s gift donations and participate in community events.
