My goal is to provide skills and techniques that are useful for you behind the chair. I will help you create unique cuts for your clients that are timeless and suitable to the individual not just of the moment. We will look at hair in a simplistic yet clever way to help streamline your approach to cutting. There are no gimmicks and the skills taught can be utilized in endless applications. With this new arsenal of skills you open the door for a more diverse clientele, wider range of textures, and new shapes. This assures you that your clients will only be able to attain their look from you and only you.
