This is my place of training. What you see here is only a partial panorama. There’s another side to this salon not visible. It’s a daunting experience. Clients as well as students occupy this space for a multitude of reasons. Soon I begin my client haircuts on this very floor and down the street at Curlique.
To date I’ve done about a dozen haircuts, from a basic solid form, to a diagonal forward increase layer. This is easily my favorite part of the course to date. For whatever reasons I took to the actual hair cutting with far more ease than other things, like finger waves or skip waves. We use the Pivot Point system in school, a kind of global standard of hair cutting that transcends place, country or language.
