Two Day Shaving and Barbering Techniques Seminar

I had the pleasure this past weekend to teach my two day shaving and barbering techniques seminar to the wonderful and talented staff from Cocolo Spa held at the award winning Gregory’s Barbershop in Delmar, New York.

Barber School

Day 1 consisted of straight razor shaving techniques demonstration and hands on training. First, we went over the different types of disposable straight razors on the market covering the features and benefits of each. Next, we worked on how to safely take out and put in razor blades. Following that, we worked on the four different hand positions including: freehand, backhand, reverse freehand, and reverse backhand. Finally, we moved on to shaving. I demonstrated the proper shave beginning with how to prepare the face, shave the face using the 14 strokes with the correct hand positions, and the post shave process. The attendees followed with demonstrating two shaves each on their live models. They did outstanding for their first time shaving and will be offering these service soon at their salon and spa.

On day two we focused on barbering techniques and hands on haircuts on mannequin heads. We first worked on barbering techniques theory which included: correct holding of the barber shears, correct holding of the clippers including underhand and overhand grips, barber shear over fingers, barber shear over comb, clipper over comb, straight razor over comb, straight razor sculpting, thinning shear over fingers, and thinning shear over comb. We incorporated these techniques into four hands on haircuts in which I would demonstrate 1 to 2 steps for each and the attendees would follow up by performing these steps on their mannequins. I find this is the best way to learn instead of me doing the entire haircut and the class trying to remember everything. A great finished haircut comes from attention to detail in each of the steps instead of just concentrating on the finished results. The haircuts the class learned were: a medium length layer cut with a longer disconnected front, a classic side part haircut, a short side part haircut with faded sides, and an ivy league hairstyle with the crown removed and shorter faded sides. These are the four basic haircuts that allowed us to practice all of the above barbering techniques. They are also the haircuts that most of today’s modern hairstyles are built from by combining them together in many different ways.

We had a great two days of education and this seminar is something that Cocolo Spa is looking to build into their education calendar once per year to keep their stylists up to date on barbering and shaving techniques. The Spa is also a proud retailer of Zorian of New York premium grooming products. We used the shave gel and shave lotion which are infused with aloe vera, shae butter, chamomille, and loaded with skin conditioners for the shaving portion of the seminar.  We used the 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner as well as all of our water soluble styling products also infused with all natural ingredients for the hair cutting portion of the seminar.
