Leaf Scissors has launched a digital hairdressing academy designed to educate, inspire, and empower the hairdressing community via a platform accessible to everyone.
Combining classic foundation techniques with practical trend-led demonstrations, Leaf Academy has teamed up with some of the industry’s most exciting names to produce a collection of video tutorials.
Charlie Gray, founder of Hair in Motion, will be showcasing his men’s hairdressing expertise, while The Social founder Ky Wilson has created tutorials on the fashion-forward cuts for which he is renowned. Leaf Scissors’ Stephen McManus joins them with a series of free tutorials exploring the different techniques and finishes achievable with Leaf Scissors. Stephen says:
At Leaf, we believe that there is nothing more rewarding than educating someone. Knowledge is the key to growth and to give back to our community, we have produced hairdressing tutorials that everyone can learn from, in their own time and space - making it flexible and accessible.
Leaf is the brand behind the world’s first sustainable scissors – for each pair sold, Leaf plants a minimum of ten trees, with more than 24,000 already planted. As part of Leaf’s sustainability mission, the brand has also pledged to plant ten trees for every tutorial purchased through the new online academy. Currently, the tutorials are priced at £15 each, with various discounted ‘bundle’ options. Charlie says:
As a brand, Leaf is aligned with my way of thinking and its ethos matches my beliefs. The Leaf mission is to do great things for the environment, as well as within the hairdressing industry, and to help make the shift towards more sustainable ways of working. I look forward to an ongoing partnership and to working with Leaf to spread its message and to create even more beautiful content and education with its products.
Working with Leaf Scissors is about more than just top-quality products. It’s about working with like-minded independents who have so much substance and a constant hunger to create a noise for change. Working with them, not only as an ambassador, but also to bring incredible education to the industry is something I am very proud of.
