About us

The operation of Ridica Cosmetology & Barber School is under the instruction of qualified instructors with years of experience in the beauty industry. All staff meets or exceeds standards set by the Texas state board licensing requirements. Quality education is exhibited daily in the classroom and on the clinic floor with attention and dedication to all our students. Regularly, we also invite guest artists, lecturers, and trainers with proven expertise in virtually all areas of the beauty field.


While participating in classes or receiving services in our clinic, Ridica Cosmetology & Barber School visitors are encouraged to practice hand hygiene, “social distancing,” and wear face coverings to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19. Because COVID-19 is highly contagious and spreads mainly from person-to-person contact, Ridica Cosmetology & Barber School has put preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, Ridica Cosmetology & Barber School cannot guarantee that its students, visitors, clients, partners, or others in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19.
