Visual Theory & Hands-on Haircutting Class – New Orleans, LA

Hair Loft Studio
Getting there
100 Girod St, New Orleans, LA

This class has been so generously made open to the public by Hair Loft Studio. :) If you’re a visual learner like me, I’d loooove to nerd-out with you in this class. We won’t just learn one cool hair cut or two. I want you to learn and be able to design and create ANY haircut that will best suit your client’s face shape, head shape, hair type, and lifestyle. ✂️ Here’s what the class will look like... Theory The class will start out with a theory portion with lots and lots of visual aids to help you understand it more. I don’t want you to memorize theory, I want you to understand it. Why does elevating to 90 degrees remove weight? Why does elevating to 45 degrees build weight? We’ll use lots and lots of visuals to learn together. Demo I'll be cutting side-by-side with you during the hands-on portion. I’ll be explaining not just the "HOWs" but also the "WHYs" behind each step. Here, you'll get to see how I apply theory in cutting my clients’ hair. Hands-on Apply theory yourself! :) After I finish and explain a portion of the haircut, you will do the same on your mannequin. Hearing and seeing Theory helps, but I believe that applying theory yourself will help you even more. I'll be going around to assist you, give your tips and answer questions. Tools to bring: - Uncut mannequin head with medium length hair - Tripod (no clamps please) - Scissors - Cutting comb - 4 Clips - Water bottle - Pen Schedule: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm - Visual Theory 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm - Break 12:30 pm- 3:00 pm - Hands-on Break: To keep ticket prices low and more accessible to everyone, lunch will not be provided. During the break, you can leave, eat somewhere and come back. I personally like to stay and bring a packed lunch that doesn’t require refrigeration or heating. I you’d like to do the same, stay and hangout with me while I eat and set up for hands-on, I’d looove that! :) Refunds/Transfers: There are no refunds for tickets but you may transfer it to another person. You may not switch to another class using this ticket. Hope to see you at the class!! :)
