WHAT IS FOUNDATIONS?

Foundations is designed for hairstylists who take their craft seriously and wish to raise the standards of haircutting. This course is designed for hairstylists who are looking for a thoroughly structured classroom setting. It is NOT intended for hairstylists who are looking for the next “trending” haircut.
This is a 2-DAY INTENSIVE COURSE focusing on the integrity of haircutting. It provides hands-on coaching utilizing technique, body position, and planning a haircut while learning how to execute these techniques for life “behind the chair.”
Both days are broken down into two parts; part one is the theory and demonstration lead by the instructor, while part two is the hands on portion for participants. Each class runs approximately for 7 hours, with a strict start and end time for each session.
