June 6-7, 2021: Inspirational Eras Workshop with Amy Farid

Join us for a fun and inspiring day and a half with editorial stylist Amy Farid. In this creative styling class you will learn iron work techniques, a classic croquignole set and how to take it through the eras with a thoughtful twist in the approach.

Let’s look at hair differently together. This class is small, just six stylists who will share in feeling challenged and pushed in new directions.

Our goal is that you learn new tricks and techniques that you leave feeling more comfortable when it comes to styling. We hope you feel inspired to try new approaches in your own creative projects.
