In this class, Tamara will be demonstrating on a manikin head while stylists execute on live models, or manikin heads you provide. Tamara will give you the freedom to explore your creativity while providing hands-on individual guidance.
We will be collectively working on 1 down style with the sides swept up, and a high/middle/low bun. These are the 2 most common basic shapes.
This includes working on the basic but intricate skills of creating well-balanced shapes, various curl/braid techniques, teasing, combing out, draping, and pinning hair in various ways to help the client achieve their vision. We will also talk about how to make contacts, contracts, and set pricing.
Be ready with an idea of what you need to work on and list of questions about things you want to better understand.Tools needed
- heads to work on (manikin or models)
- hand mirrors (very important)
- blow dryer
- curling irons in various sizes
- flat iron
- hot rollers
- tail combs, (comb out brushes if you want to try them)
- bobby pins (closed) and hairpins (open), in both 2” and 3”- color does not matter
- light workable aerosol hairspray
- smoothing products
Having a “mother of the bride” type, a curly haired person, or bridal style incorporating clip-in extensions will be important to learn, so if you feel that’s where need help, feel free to target that when picking your model or manikin.NOTE
