Hello my name is Mrs. Erika Rivera. I am the barber instructor at Victory Career College. It has always been a calling to help others, empower, and work on finding solutions. My job is to prepare our students for real life barbershop setting by hard work, knowledge and skills. I have been in this industry for more than 5 years. Graduated from Aveda Institute in cosmetology where I learnt a wide range of techniques in the art of hair cutting and color, and I went to Victory Career College for my crossover to Barbering course. Double licensed, I became an entrepreneur and opened my barbering business in 2014. The high demand for barbers, shows in our industry is growing rapidly. The art of fades brings unlimited styles for men and women to feel fantastic in and show off their best selves. Now I am sharing my experiences and business skills with my students!
