About the event

PiK • Layers  12 : 6 Above Noon (round concave layers)

Perspective can be the difference between success/fail, owning/renting or easy/hard. If yr like me and you prefer the first half to each of those differences, you’ll love this class! 

My method is original, simple and visual. I teach my “Clock Cutting Concept.” Time is the most important thing we have in life and clocks are what we use to measure it, so thats where i drew my inspiration. We’ve all seen and used plenty of analog clocks in our lives. How many times have you utilized a protractor in yr life?Utilizing the Clock Concept you will learn a seven section round layer shape, the most famous, money making haircut in salon history. 

This lesson will show you the importance of body position and where to stand depending on yr the shape of yr layers. Also even teach you where to stand when sectioning for no resistance when drawing yr line. It will teach the important of the mirror and how to properly utilize it as a tool/indicator. It will also teach ya the important of yr combing direction and what you will get from it! This one lesson can open yr mind, letting you see how simple things can be when you think inside the box, work the rules and have proper boundaries.
