WAAY-31's Bridget Divers discusses how a local barber school has been teaching up and coming barbers.

And had marijuana in his system.

New at 5 -- a barber school in decatur is teaching students valuable skills in less than a year.

Waay-31's bridget divers is live in decatur after speaking with the owner.


The owner of the alabama school of barbering -- bill rice -- says he first opened up the school right before the pandemic started.

Since then they've had students come from all over north alabama to learn how to be barbers or estheticians.

Just last month they had over 10 people graduate and currently there's around nine students.

Rice has been teaching the barber trade for more than a quarte of a century.

I opened up my own barber shop because some people have trouble like accommodating their schedule, their work schedules for attending barber school so, i wanted to make this just so i can accommodate the average working person students at the school can learn everything from haircuts and coloring to facials and perms. live in decatur, bridget divers, waay-31 news.
