BRUNETTE BALAYAGE

Brunette Balayage with Natalia @nataliaverahair: How many times have you been afraid to approach the situation in front of you or have felt unable to decipher the reference photo your client is showing you?

It is through these methods that she’ll showcase on this course that Natalia has attained a very extensive brunette clientele.

DEPTH & DIMENSION

Depth & Dimension with Ludovic @ludodvxhair: learning the art of low maintenance hair. Designed to help you embrace dimension to create effortless looks.

Over the last few years, Ludo has seen the return of natural, dimensional, and more importantly, low maintenance looks. Bold blondes are still in demand, but there certainly has been a shift in a client’s willingness to enjoy more of their natural tones.

It’s important as stylist we understand that everyone’s lifestyles and budgets vary, and we need to know to effectively create looks that will keep them feeling good about themselves. Now, creating low maintenance hair doesn’t mean easy, basic, or minimal work. In fact it requires having a deeper understanding of colour theory, hair chemistry, your brand choices, and more.

Ludo has found that while we’ve been learning all we can about bold blonding, we’ve lacked in better understanding lowlighting and depth. Ludo has designed this class around depth and dimension – when to incorportate more in, when to leave what’s already there, and when to take it away.

He’ll be sharing all my knowledge, tips and tricks while being totally transparent and honest with any question you may want to ask. His aim is to help you gain confidence and knowledge, allowing you to feel empowered and inspired as a stylist, feeling excited to take these new techniques back to your salon.
