Course Content

Lesson 1 – Cheat Pleat Up-Do

In your first lesson, Callam Warrington demonstrates a quick and easy alternative to the traditional pleat. Ideal for catwalk and photoshoot shows – or any occasion when you’re short on time – you’ll work on your blow drying, pinning and tonging skills, as well as barrel and spiral curls. The end result is elegant, glamorous and amazingly fast.

Lesson 2 – High Ponytail Up-Do

Callam’s back in lesson 2 to demonstrate the high ponytail – an essential skill if you’re an aspiring session worker or a busy stylist preparing clients for special occasions. Packed with tips on everything from hand positioning to binding with cloth elastic, you’ll even learn how to complete the style with a blended section of weft. Brilliant on its own or as a base from which to get more elaborate.

Lesson 3 – Fishtail & French Plait

In his final tutorial, Callam shows you 2 essential techniques: the fishtail and the French plait. First, you’ll perfect your fishtail plaiting skills, performing a modern loose undone spin. Next, learn a soft and diffused update of the classic French plait, which is incredibly effective both on the catwalk and for bridal clients.

Lesson 4 – Two Strand Twist Up-Do

Vic Picolotto takes charge in your fourth tutorial to teach you the two strand twist. Thorough preparation and product use are crucial to your success – as is ponytail placement, double rotation and positioning. This tight up-do with its combination of twists will delight your clients, leaving them with a clean yet classic style with a modern twist.

Lesson 5 – Chignon Back Bun

Any up-do course wouldn’t be complete without a lesson from Sharon Blain! In your final tutorial, she demonstrates the chignon back bun. Building your techniques ranging from back brushing to blow drying and ponytails, you’ll learn how to create movement and volume with rollers, leaving your client with a smooth refined finish. Gorgeous!
