Includes in-depth haircut theory, anatomy of the razor, defining of industry terminology, examination of references, client consultation, and break downs of the how/when/why of multiple techniques such as twist cutting, slide cutting, and surface cutting.

Triple Threat:

Advanced haircolor class designed to teach the art of blending classic hair painting with foil work. This class demonstrates how to create pops of extra brightness inside traditional soft lift balayage, with a combination of Open Air Balayage, “Baby Lights” (fine foil highlighting), Foilayage (balayage "V" or "W" placements inside a foil). The result of blending open air balayage with sections previously processed inside of a foil creates multi-dimensional lift in one process.  Base breaking and shadow toning are incorporated to create perfect transitions and graduation of color.

Diamond Paint:

Advanced haircolor class designed to teach the art of Foilayage (Balayage inside foil) in a Diamond pattern for maximum lift in one session while leaving an organic halo of depth or root shadow. All foil techniques of baby lights, ombre, and foilayage are applied in each sub-section to mimic open air place (dry brushing at roots and increased lightness toward the mid-lengths and ends) but with an extra level of lift. Base breaking and shadow toning are also incorporated to create perfect transitions and graduation of color.
