In this technique, you're going to learn how to remove interior density & weight using a razor. I like to use this technique in the…

TO ALL STYLISTS THAT THINK, “MY CLIENT WILL NEVER GO FOR THAT HAIRCUT!” ...THINK AGAIN.

Many times in classes we hear statements like "my client will never go for that" or "my clients have more conservative jobs so they won't go for that" or some other version of a reason why their client "won't go for that.” Nine times out of ten, it's a decision we make for the client instead of giving them options…this is why I wanted to introduce you all to Laurie.

#btcwhatwouldyoudo? I want to go to Beauty School but I NEED HELP deciding! I have three choices near me. Two "high-end" schools that charge $7,500 and $12,000 and the ROP (Regional Occupational Program) school that charges $800 for equipment. I have talked with many salons in the area, and I heard great things about all 3 places! My feeling is that going with the more expensive options $7.500 / $12,000 I will be trained for more high end salons. So is it worth the extra money for better training or should I go for the cheapest training and learn the rest on the job at the salon? Thank-you for all your help!
