AFRO BEGINNERS IN-PERSON COURSE
If you feel a bit nervous when a big head of textured hair sits in your chair you’re not the only one.
It’s impossible to know how to handle a hair type you were not trained in!
Often the biggest worry is not even about the hair, it’s about using the wrong language and offending people.
Wouldn’t be awesome to feel totally relaxed the matter who walked through the door?
In our beginners Afro course we can take you through four elements that we think can kickstart your new fully rounded hairdressing career.
Learn the history of Black hair. How to hold an educated conversation with your client.
Language. Understanding what words are appropriate and respectful to your customer.
Cutting technique. The basics of how to cut black hair in its natural form.
Styling. We will demonstrate how to style, what products to work with and how to get the most definition into black hair.
