I really enjoyed the two days! I definitely feel a lot more confident now with shorter hairstyles and graduation, the fact that you cut differently from what I've seen has been helpful as it’s given me options to choose from depending on what I find easier on that hair type.
How you carry out your consultation (basing it on the client’s face shape, hair type etc), has been so beneficial as not many people take that amount of time, but it's shown me that if you do you can create a haircut that's much more personalised and tailored to the client.
The styles that you showed me, the textures, and a more natural way of finishing I found really interesting. I went back to my salon and showed them pictures, and repeated everything you said; it interested them to see something new.
Also everything you have achieved and what you do now has inspired me, and made me realise even more where I want to be in say ten or 20 years time within the industry. Really inspirational!
Overall I found it really helpful, and you were great at teaching us. I would definitely come on another one of your courses again!

Really enjoyed the course at the Wella Studio Manchester, working on the models and having James and Nelson talk about the cut and styling step by step. I learnt and understand angles more which has made me more confident about the work I do in-salon.
