I would really like to get better at haircuts, does anyone know of schools or good classes to take?

Go to your local beauty supply store - mostly all of them (open to public or not) have postings for continued education classes, usually pretty inexpensive too. A lot of beauty schools have advanced education classes to take as well. There is a class locator on this website, look on that.

Beauty supply sponsored classes:
Graham Webb was very good... I learned a great technique for balancing asymetric cuts
Aquage cutting, I learned a whole bunch about my razor and how to use it in a million and one different techniques

Vidal Sassoon 2 day class on precision cutting
Bumble and Bumble education through my salon... my educator Rio was A M A Z I N G. I learned all kinds of things from him. I loved it!

I would definatley watch for your local beauty supply to host classes. Take every one that your pocketbook will allow. Trust me, ANY class will teach you new things :)
Plus its a great way to get familiar with new product lines since many of these courses are taught by product line educators.
Even if you don't use a particular line in your salon, it never hurts to know more :) :)

HI there! I just saw this thread and it caught my eye. I learned SOOOOO much from the Redken Exchange in NYC. They have 3-4 day classes that are hands on! Some classes you work on live models and others you'll work on mannequin heads(my preference, no feelings!) If you have attended a principle based cutting class by a Redken educator...then you might know what I'm talking about. Sam Villa, who won for favorite platform artist, taught me most of what I know about haircutting. Chris Baran, global artistic director for Redken, he also has dvds that are very intensive and helpful! Anyway, hope this helps!
Good Luck!
