It is vital to remember that information in the sense of raw data, is not knowledge, that knowledge is not wisdom, and that wisdom is not foresight, but information is the first essential step to all of these.

This in depth cutting program is designed to give students the why of cutting hair. Focusing on the 3 fundamental shapes, students will go through a journey of understanding shape and the multi dimensions that we can look at them. Focusing on technique and theory, students will leave with a new view on how to work through haircuts methodically and feel confident in adapting these techniques into the salon experience.
It is recommended that this class be categorized in 2 groups:
– 2 years or less: perfect for new designers & apprentices
– 5 years + : perfect for seasoned stylists to refresh and revisit their foundations
Every client has an area of concern with their hair that can create limits for you or them when designing their unique look.
Through this one day hands on class you will be elevated in understanding the importance of primary disconnection.
What it is, when to use it, and why to use the techniques to have a complete understanding of the value of a proper analysis. In addition you will learn multi-functional personalizing techniques with your shears to ensure each client has a custom look suited just for them.
