FORM Hair Education

2014-11-03 11.48.25When you have enough hair for at least two people, the perfect blowout is not easily within your grasp.  I know.  I have that much long and curly hair.  Recently, I was invited to experience this great new class at FORM Hair Education by Whitney Haynes.  She began non-trade classes as a way to help her clients achieve beautiful salon blowouts without having to come see her.  How is that for someone who is client focused!?!?

FORM Hair EducationIf you have ever dreamed of styling your hair like a professional, this is for you.  Students leave the courses with their hair styled, knowledge to repeat at home, a diagram of sectioning for your look, and sectioning clips.  Clients are set up with a complete set of tools to use during their class.  Each tool and products is available to purchase during the class, however the focus on technique not product.

FORM Hair Education provides these classes:

Beautiful Blow-Dry: a blow-out style perfect for day or night.

Perfect Ponytail: Learn how to make that ponytail look fabulous! FORM will help you create sleek or voluminous, high or low ponytails.

Glamorous Curls: Learn to create loose waves that are sure to have your friends asking how did you do that?

Tousled Up-Do Style: Quick tousled style perfect for that lbd or out of town wedding. FORM will show you how to perfectly put hair up making you feel confident that your hair falls exactly in the right place.

This would be a great gift idea to pass along!  Better yet, I’ll be heading back for the Glamorous Curls class soon.  Join me?
