So we launched our Back to Basics series on Monday and we want to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who came along! It was so much fun and inspiring to see everyone live and learning. We always use live models who are dressed by the amazing Gabrielle from Collecting Pretty Boys and our makeup for the first two sessions was by the very talented Vanessa Harlem.

“Absolutely loved the first session & feeling so inspired” – Jane T

In our first session the looks we covered were a Glass Clean Chignon and the 3D Braid. We talked about the perfect preparation, what product to use and why – and of course which tools we need to take our long hair styling to the next level.

Here are some short highlights from our sessions.

One of the best things about our special occasion hair education is accessibility – you can watch live or in your own time. It’s so exciting to see students watching live and asking questions. And in our closed Facebook group there are always students asking questions and sharing work as they watch the sessions recorded in their own time.

In our next Back to Basics class we’ll be learning how to do the Perfect Pony Tail and Rope Braid & Chignon. If you want to join us and become part of our global community of stylists then click here to learn more about what you learn in our Back to Basics online education.


Session 2 of our Back to Basics online education aired on Tuesday – thanks to everyone who watched live! It’s so awesome seeing students asking questions and being engaged – interactive learning really is the best.

This time the looks we covered were the Perfect Pony Tail and Rope Braid & Chignon. These are really important looks for modern stylists to be able to create as they’re so popular when it comes to special occasion styling in 2018.


I love sharing my styling knowledge with students from around the world and seeing them share their work in our closed Facebook group. Without a doubt, after each session there’ll be students working hard on their own mannequins and sharing their work with us for feedback. It’s so inspiring to watch their skills and confidence improve ALREADY!


We had our third Back to Basics online education session on Wednesday! This was one of my favourites and a really important one because we covered Dutch Braid & Soft Bun and Red Carpet Waves.

Waves are becoming increasingly popular when it comes to special occasion styling so it’s crucial that hair stylists know how to create this look and do it well.

As always – seeing everyone live and asking questions was fantastic. I love connecting with my students, it makes the learning experience so much better. Check out what Domenica had to say about our Back to Basics course:

Thank you so much! I love these webinars and am learning so much from them. What means the most for me, is that they are engaging and I am retaining the info and that is always half my battle. Loving this! I am a sole operator of a skin clinic and just completed makeup artistry and wanting to add hair to my skill set and I couldn’t be happier with what I am learning! – Domenica C

It’s never to late to join Back to Basics – we’ve only got one more live session but we record every class so you can always access our educational content. And the closed Facebook group means you can connect with Lorna and other students no matter when you join us!
