During our abc Men course you will study classic men’s techniques of scissor over comb together with layering, graduation and lines. Essential variations will show how these fundamental techniques combine to produce a complete range of contemporary shapes which, when perfected give the platform to create a comprehensive repertoire of looks. Throughout the course you will also study how proportion, suitability and bone structure impact on the choice of techniques and be able to implement this into your everyday men’s work. Practical hands on workshops, demonstrations and theory will give you the perfect platform to hone and develop your skills in a stimulating and creative environment.
