Developing Career Disciplines 

Correct Tension, Relaxed Hand, Proper Cutting Edge.


All hair cutting scissors adhere to being used with simplistic disciplines. Some scissor manufacturers are better at it than others, yet they all claim they are the best. My job is to help you to discover the difference. Your professional hair cutting technique, and creativity will have little momentum without developing the skills necessary to execute these disciplines early in your career.


Acquiring this knowledge prepares you to differentiate why some scissors perform with precision while others merely cut hair. Scissors produce the desired result to the deserving few that have prepared themselves to recognize the difference.


Every function, or malfunction of scissors is associated with you understanding the tension setting, proper hand control, and maintaining the correct cutting edge. If hair cutting success is this simple, why do so many people ignore career disciplines?

For a smooth reviewing process follow the classrooms as they are presented.

Bring your scissors, these are hands on classes.
