Workshop (3 Days)
February 23, 2020
Want to dive deep into men’s cuts?
How do I know if this Barber Workshop is right for me?
“Why do they section that way”, or “how come it doesn’t look the same when I do it”?
Learn how to adapt Eikonic’s 3 universal haircut elevations to any haircut situation and texture for today’s highly-requested haircuts.
This intensive hands-on-workshop will add value to any barber, stylist or aspiring professional looking to get their feet wet. For those who are ‘self taught’ – this is a great bridge to close the gap and will help you understand ‘the reason why’ behind what you are doing.
Learn to navigate popular barbershop–reality mens haircuts using the Eikonic Barbering System. This step-by-step system of mens cutting is designed to help you navigate shorter on-scalp haircut styles and combines both traditional classic scissor techniques as well as modern fade techniques. Work smarter-not harder – find out the secret to why we start our haircuts ‘in the middle’
You will learn Eikonic’s 3 fundamental men’s haircut geometric structures and unlock techniques that will allow you to seamlessly combine a crisp bald fade with lengthier scissor techniques for infinite creative combinations.
Designed for efficiency, this strategic approach to hair will allow you to plan your time and maximize your productivity so that you’ll never have to go back to ‘blend’ in your mistakes
