|The new Menswork In-Salon Training Program from American Crew includes everything the professional needs to master men’s cuts and styles.|
American Crew is launching a unique in-salon educational program designed to train barbers, stylists, teachers and students. The Menswork In-Salon Training Program is based on American Crew’s Menswork Method, a technical approach to cutting hair for all clients and hair types.
“American Crew devised the Menswork cutting techniques in 1994,” says Sarah Atchley, education director, Colomer Salon Division. “Rather than re-vamp the program, we decided to launch a new program to incorporate additional information we have gathered over the past 10 years. Our goal was to make American Crew education accessible and easily tailored to individual stylist or student needs.”
The five DVD program includes 345 minutes of instruction with support materials that include step-by-step manuals (created by technical director Teirry DeJoode) for 18 classic and contemporary men’s cuts, lesson plans, quizzes, cutting guides and rules for tool usage and techniques.
Atchley says, “The Menswork In-Salon Training Program can be edited to fit any salon, school or independent study time frame. Salon training or classes at trade shows are limited, but with this program, training can be held any time, for any number of participants and can be repeated as needed.”
The courses include Method 01, an introduction to five-step cutting and correct tool usage; Cutting Theory, elements of the hair cutting process; and Method 02, secondary shapes and combined cutting techniques. Atchley adds that the investment pays for itself as a continuing training tool and confidence-builder for men’s services.
The program sells for $699 and is available online at www.americancrew.com.
