Our Story

RBBI is located in the heart of Riverside, Fort Worth, Texas, a neighborhood/community established back in 1888. We are the first barber & beauty institute in DFW with bilingual classes in English and Spanish. We strive to teach and educate our students to not only be barbers and beauticians but to be a positive role model in the community so we can build a better future in our city together.

Our mission is to guide our students with original moral values such as respect, honesty, punctuality, and understanding. RBBI takes pride in going above and beyond the basics of the educational program. We not only teach the core program that will allow you to pass the state board exams but also teach personal development skills and business skills to succeed in all aspects of your life.


Our clinic floor will allow our students to get the hands on experience they require to become proficient and excel in their techniques as well as gain confidence. No matter which one of our courses you decide to take, we guarantee you will be ready to immediately begin your career after graduation.


RBBI is a proud member of the Rivereast Community and hopes to continue to cater to our youth in the surrounding communities as well as build a long lasting customer relationship with everyone.
