Whether facilitating an in-salon class or on a stage at a major event, there is always something to be discovered and learned. “Stylists need a good understanding of the fundamentals of basic techniques, once mastered, they can be manipulated to create modern silhouettes and textures,” explains Sam.
“It’s time to SHOUT IT OUT! The way for us to BE better is to COME TOGETHER as an industry, and the SHOUT begins here!” adds Sam.
