The Consultation: Learn how to consult the right way, with authority and expertise. Consulting builds trust and rapport between the stylist and the client. It is key to assert yourself and come from a place of confidence. One happy client can refer at least ten new ones.

1 Step-by-Step Demonstration by Laara Raynier: During this haircut, Raynier will zero-in on the face shape, bone structure & suitability of the client. Emphasis will be on how to read, understand and work with growth patterns, which are key when cutting bobs & short hair.

Get individual attention from Laara Raynier and learn how to create the shape, form, and texture of a short haircut on LIVE MODELS.
