Hair Painting 101: Theory, Techniques & Trends

Dawn believes in fostering a creative atmosphere in her courses, focused on hands-on learning and preparing students to leave the class feeling comfortable enough to apply what they've learned in the salon the next day.

You won't find any patterns, pictures of heads, hand-outs, textbooks, slideshow presentations or mannequins in this class. You'll have the opportunity to apply hair painting techniques on two live models - Dawn believes that as you learn so much from your first model, that having the opportunity to try a second in the same class furthers understanding and learning as much as possible. This also provides the student with the chance to try the techniques out in a different way, create a different look, and work with a different hair texture or length.

Dawn's approach to hair painting challenges students to incorporate new ways to manipulate their tools that contradicts previously learned techniques. Students will learn how to mix the product, how to apply it and how to achieve seamless integration of colour. The course will also cover current trends, such as balayage.

This interactive class is perfect for the creative thinker because it encapsulates the artistic aspects of the hair industry. 

Dawn will share with you how this specific technique of hair painting completely transformed her business and set her up for growth and success.
