We all own a flat iron and just about every client owns one but who's taught you how to really master it? And as importantly, since heat is the #1 destructor of haircolor, how can you teach your guest how not to destroy your work?

We use and rely upon heat in the salon but developing your understanding on how to master it will lead you to greater results and guest satisfaction.

Be introduced to the theory of how smoothing and texturing/volumizing irons work, creating new and interesting textures and learn new looks for creating body, movement, and radiant shine all while showcasing your beautiful color work.
