<p>To achieve the textured mohawk portion in this bi-level fauxhawk, Great Clips, Inc. Education Services Specialist <strong>Joni Bierman</strong> elevated a 1-inch, mini-mohawk section straight up and razor cut to about 2 inches from the crown to the front hairline. She cut the rest of the top on each side of the mohawk by parting the previously cut mini-mohawk section in half to use as a guide and then razor cutting. The process was repeated in back from the crown to the occipital, elevating hair behind the ears to leave length. &nbsp;</p>

Imagine if you had the chance to create a hair cut that would be taught to thousands of stylists across the U.S. and Canada. How would you feel if your cut was chosen? That’s exactly what happened for Great Clips, Inc. Education Services Specialist Joni Bierman and National Education Services Specialist Scott Sellers and they’re still feeling excitement and pride!

INSPIRATION
The new trend collection from Great Clips, Inc. is called Fierce Elements by Great Clips, and is the second to be created by the education team for stylists in Great Clips salons. The collection puts a modern spin on trendy hair cuts that incorporate texture and movement via a combination of clipper cutting and razor techniques.

Bierman, who joined Great Clips, Inc. in 2015, created a razor cut she calls the Ares. Her inspiration came from the fierce mohawk style of Great Clips Mohawk Warrior Monster Jam driver Bryce Kenny.  “My two boys used to watch Monster Jam regularly,” Bierman says. “And I recently went to a Monster Jam event in Oakland and the kids were lining up to get mohawks! I wanted to create my own take on Bryce’s signature look using razor techniques.”  

Sellers has been part of the Great Clips, Inc. team for nine years. His inspiration for the pixie cut he calls the Fallon came from his observation that more and more Great Clips stylists were interested in the cut. “I knew the style would work well with the Great Clips Cutting and Clipper Systems,” he says. “And I wanted to create a short, fun and edgy hai rcut for women who want creative freedom and a sassy look.”

THE GREAT CLIPS ACADEMY
The Fierce Elements by Great Clips collection will become part of the broader education program available to all Great Clips stylists. Called the Great Clips Academy, the blended learning program combines online courses and in-person training for a cohesive, customizable training and development experience for stylists employed by independent franchisees. As part of the Academy program, stylists can attend three technical sessions, including the Great Clips Cutting and Clipper Systems and trend hair cuts, led by Great Clips, Inc. Education Services Specialists.

“As a stylist for the Great Clips brand, you get numerous opportunities for continuing education and development,” comments Sellers. “Great Clips Academy classes exceed the expectations of even veteran stylists, and everyone usually walks away wanting even more.”
