Comprehensive Finishing Education
Seven face shapes, four profile types. Straight, wave, frizz, or curls. A multitude of brushes and hot tools. Countless hair products. When you know the principles of finishing hair, you will make decisions with confidence. Take your clients from WHAT I HAVE to WHAT I WANT successfully every time.
The Principles of Suitability
If we gave the same hairstyle to ten different clients we’d get ten different looks. Similar, but definitely different. Suitability starts with the client’s face shape and profile. Do you want to enhance volume at the top? Do you want to soften a jawline? We can completely change a client’s look without cutting a strand of hair, and with the principles of suitability, we can make a client for life.
The Principles of Heat
Heat is central to finishing hair. From blast-drying to the finest root tong or the most elegant Marcel wave, there is a science and art in where we apply the heat and how much of it we apply. Here we cover everything from dryer nozzles to flat irons. You’ll never look at a crimp iron the same way again.
Many people don’t think much about the brushes they use. It turns out the type of brush we use in a given situation can makes a big difference in the result. Do you need control or speed? Do you want volume? Or maybe a high shine? Here’s how you make the right choice.
The Principles of Product
As Sam Villa will tell you, “Product isn’t an option. It’s a necessity.” But in a market of literally thousands of products, how do you decide? Here we look at the properties of the various categories, and how you can quickly make the right choices, and even make some brilliant combinations, to get exactly the control and finish you’re after.
