This 2 day Fundamental Cutting course will provide you with the absolute foundation and technical insight on hair architecture. You will gain knowledge in theory and practice by understanding how to create SHAPES by using precise SECTIONing patterns, and the major KINETICS. Join us as we will take you on a journey of discovering LINE, LAYERS, GRADUATION, AND FADE and how to implement them into your everyday haircuts. 


This 16-hour intensive  hands on course is made for individuals to gain confidence and control with their scissors and clippers. Our unique “SIMONS SAYS” in-depth hands-on training allows students to thoroughly learn how to build like an architect so they can appreciate not just “how” to cut hair but also the ‘why’.  The small instructor-to-student ratio is something that we take very seriously to allow students to develop as fast as they can.

This course is for anyone with all levels of experience starting from new beginners to daily cutters. If you want to cut with confidence and increase your technical ability this course is for you.
