The artistry of a craft hair cut is all in the details! Structure, design and detail:  these are the essential elements that create a craft haircut.

In precision hair cutting, a strong foundation, or structure, is achieved through a clear understanding of the fundamental techniques:  lines, layers and graduation.

Blueprinting your haircut is the design, which allows for creativity with skillful execution.

Detail work on the finished structure and design is your signature on the haircut.  Detailing with a free-form cutting technique creates movement and fluidity to the shape. Detailing takes only 20% of your service time but is worth 80% of your service value!



The goal of this one-day hands-on workshop is to elevate your salon work by focusing on strong technique, correct body position and precision cutting.
