KMS IQ Cutting Class
Wow oh wow! We had a great turn-out and some awesome feedback from our three-day course on the IQ cutting method, held last week at the fabulous Goldwell Academy! We love Goldwell and were in for a total treat when global trainer for KMS and Goldwell, Clive Alright, came up from Sydney to be guest artist for the course.
The star cutting techniques that were covered were truly inspirational – from setting down essential foundations to take a stylist anywhere they want to go, to an endless number of haircuts. We love the IQ Cutting Method. No matter how creative a hairdresser wants to be, there’s no doubt the methods covered in the three days form a fantastic, solid and strong basis to get them there, with a more intelligent approach to a comprehensive cutting method.
Clive, with his expert know-how, showed us cutting techniques, refreshing the known, taking it above and beyond, and adding so much more – from basics through to so many fantastic variations, and with stacks of creative pointers along the way.
Our Epic hair designers were so fired up with what they got from the course that they were itching to get back to work with scissors in hand, to apply what was covered.
The IQ Cutting Method is the perfect mix of left-brain knowledge and right-brain creativity. Even the seasoned cutters amongst us learned some great tricks of the trade and got fantastic value from this training. It certainly inspired confidence and creativity and brought with it the freedom to create style, instead of re-creating it.
