This is a 5 day life changing experience that'll take you on a journey like no other.   In this course you will   gain knowledge in theory and practice by understanding how to create shapes by using specific sectioning patterns, techniques, and kinetics. Hair cutting requires precision and coordination, which can only be achieved through consistently practicing the right way. Master your scissor - clipper work and strengthen the techniques by grasping the how and why with our in depth training. Become a Hair Architect by learning  the art and science of designing hairstyles that enhances a person's overall look and appeal. It involves understanding the different elements of hair such as length, weight, and texture and using various techniques and tools to manipulate and style to the look desired. Just like architectural design in buildings, hair architecture requires creativity, precision, and attention to detail. Hair Architects use their skills and expertise to analyze a client's facial features, hair type, and personal preferences to create a hairstyle that complements their individuality and beauty.  The Graduates from this class will have a thorough understanding of how to implement scissor and clipper work together to achieve all of the trending hairstyles up to date. There is a methodology to cutting hair and our team will help you build your confidence by utilizing our systematic approach. In this 10 day course you will learn: 

Day 1: LINE AND LAYERS  + head diagrams 
Day 2: GRADUATION  + head diagrams 
Day 3: SCISSOR AND CLIPPER WORK + BLOWDRYING  + head diagrams 
Day 4: LOOK AND LEARN + COMBINATION OF SCISSORS AND CLIPPER 
Day 5: LOOK AND LEARN + COMBINATION OF SCISSORS AND CLIPPER


We will specifically showcase a variety of skills including sectioning hair, scissor work, texturizing, scissor over comb, fading, shaping,outlining, blow-drying, and styling with the right products.

This 40-hour intensive course is made for individuals to gain confidence and control in their hair cutting profession. 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 possible.
