Top industry educator Sharon Blain’s 2014 classes will be consumer focused, adopting a new approach based on modernity and simplicity, writes Shannon Gaitz.

Featuring three entirely new courses, Making Pictures, LonghairHow2 and Essential Elements Boot Camp, Sharon’s courses are designed exclusively for makeup artists, new apprentices and emerging stylists.

“With the huge amount of educational classes on offer in Australia delivered by private education companies and major hair brands, hairdressers are spoiled for choice,” said Blain, a quadruple Hair Expo Educator of the Year winner. “It is vital to select training courses wisely, to recognize your learning outcome and only select classes that will grow your skills and give the best return on your financial investment,” she said.

The courses are available on a first come first served basis and are offered throughout regional areas in Australia, city locations, throughout the USA and Canada, UK and European. Dates will be announced shortly.
