Workshop #101

Industry Insights + Hands on Hair

This is a 4 day training workshop where I discuss the ever changing industry, share and demo makeup techniques and include the #101 Hands-On Hair Workshop! It is an intense week but the goal is to give student added skill sets to take on more job opportunities with confidence. Attendees will spend hands-on time working through multiple exercises on a mannequin head. There will also be a Q+A each day to make sure you’re getting what you need from the workshop! I try to focus each workshop on the individuals attending and their specific needs so you feel you are walking away with everything you came for! I realize the time commitment and cost is great but know that you won’t regret the investment into your life long career.
