The Trilogy course will give the student a complete overview of the different stages of Sassoon cutting education. Each stage is unique but complements the subsequent level to provide five days of total education.
Through diligent practice of the classic techniques applied in different ways, you will learn how to control and craft hair with impeccable finish.
The Sassoon philosophy is explored during the first two days using the classic abc Sassoon methods of lines, layering and graduation. These touchstone techniques are essential to understanding the dynamics of cutting and controlling shape with the application of technique.
The second two days are devoted to further practice of the abc techniques, using them in combination to begin to develop an individual salon orientated cutting style.
During the final day, the student will have the opportunity to see the Sassoon team demonstrate the possibilities of hair design. The rules have been learnt - now it’s time to break them. We believe that the educational philosophy employed through our International Academies not only gives our graduates incredible commercial skills, but also allows them to take away a piece of the culture that is Sassoon.
