Spring break might be just around the corner but with the latest crop of cut, colour and style classes, all we want to do is get schooled. We spoke with KEVIN.MURPHY Director of Education, North America Tim Abney, and COLOR.ME Design Director Kate Reid to get the scoop on the brand’s new academies and cutting-edge curriculum offerings designed with every type of salon student in mind. Here, our take on the classes you won’t want to miss this season.
The Class: SHOOT.ME
Recommended for: the aspiring session stylist
Course Deets: Prepare to capture your perfect moment in time on film! The DNA of the KEVIN.MURPHY brand lives and breathes in the editorial world. The fashion elements of a colour, cut and style come to life in a photograph. The SHOOT.ME offering from KEVIN.MURPHY brings the unique opportunity of working with one of the best, SESSION.MASTER David Cruz to a city near you. You will work alongside other creative members from the industry as each of you plan, practice and execute your perfect moment in time.
The Class: BRAID.ME
Recommended for: the not-so-basic Bohemian
Course Deets: The art of braiding is a skillset that will never go out of style. Every year, as we see the trends in fashion and design, a great braid always seems to make its way onto the runway or into a magazine. BRAID.ME Advanced on offer from KEVIN.MURPHY will not allow you to revisit some of the fundamentals of classic braiding to get you warmed up, but it will also push your creative ability to the limits as you learn the easiest approach to cornrowing and well-constructed Dutch braids that will prepare you with the skills to take on any braiding challenge.
The Class: CUT.ME
Recommended for: The scissor-happy stylist
Course Deets: CUT.ME in the Academy by KEVIN.MURPHY will teach you advanced techniques with your straight scissors, but will also introduce you to the unique CURVED.SCISSOR from KEVIN.MURPHY. This innovative tool will take your haircutting skills to the ultimate level as you learn to cut the line, form, shape and texture of your haircut in one step. In the end, this workshop, collectively, showcases the 2018 collection cuts from KEVIN.MURPHY and also increases your speed and efficiency behind the chair, which ultimately results in more dollars.
