Apprentice Services

The Apprenticeship Program is the heart of Festoon. The incorporation of new minds ensures that Festoon is continually infused with new ideas. We take great pride in our Apprenticeship Program. We strive to create truly well-rounded Stylists by providing both technical and customer service training. The Apprentices are given the opportunity to perfect their skills by scheduling models for appointments on Mondays in our Berkeley salon. To progress in the program, the Apprentices must demonstrate their technical expertise with a variety of haircuts and color services. As they advance, they may schedule model appointments on additional days. These more experienced Apprentices are our Advanced Apprentices. Ultimately, once they have passed all the levels, the Apprentices are given the opportunity to cut and color as Jr. Stylists and then as full Stylists at Festoon.


Appointments with the Apprentices always begin with a thorough consultation with the Educator. We ask you to keep an open mind and remember that this is a learning situation. All work is supervised; however, results are not guaranteed. Because of the importance of this program, we encourage promptness and patience. As the Apprentices progress through the program they require specific types of haircut and color models. If you would like to be a hair model, you will need to tell us in advance what type of haircut you would like. These are some of your choices: short women’s, short men’s, long layers, one-length bob, graduated bob, & one-length trim. And, if you would like to be a color model, you will need to tell us in advance what type color service you would like. This being the case, Apprentice services are not bookable online. You must call to book. 510-524-2953
