Open House: Featuring six live educators showcasing a wide variety of techniques and skills, the Open House Workshops will unlock more value than ever before.

Each educator will showcase multiple looks throughout the day on several models. 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.
