The team will cover the techniques used daily to create seamless, future proof colour-work, styling looks, extensions, cutting and creating perfect pictures for Instagram. Open level experience.

Colour Correction Specialist Class: This workshop is designed for colourists who have a yearning to master the art of colour correction. In this workshop, participants will see educators colour the hair of three live models, transforming hair disasters into dream hair, in just one sitting.

The class will also cover lightening for hyper sensitised hair, banding and brassiness, removal of mineral build up in blondes and many additional techniques.
