This 38-hour intensive course 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 they can.
