    Great class!

  2. AUDREY H.

    In the last 3 months I’ve taken classes with Johnny Ramirez, Bianca Hiller, Catherine Loves Color, Carly from The Blonde Chronicles, in addition to both of Tabitha’s HB classes. All of them were excellent classes but Tabitha is by far the BEST! Her techniques are salon & time friendly. She doesn’t hold back on giving you the secret sauce! Every slight change in density, elevation, direction, or saturation she makes sure you got it. It is those small golden nuggets that elevate your color game to rockstar status. Hands down a true educator who backs it up with stunning work!

  3. REN S.

    A great, insightful lesson. Thank you.

  4. GARY H.

    What a great class!! I can see where I will use this a lot!!

  5. THUY H.

    This is the 2nd class I’ve taken with Tabitha. I love her teaching style and can’t wait to use her techniques in the salon. Great class!


    Second class i take from her NEVER DISSAPOINTS! Great tips great technique a must watch!

  7. SHAWN H.

    Have been to a lot of Aveda classes and many more on varies online sites buy far this is the best for foil placement and ease of use amazing .

  8. JOSHUA L.

    So so good! Will definitely be using this placement a ton in the future!

  9. KEELY C.

    The foil placement theory in Tabitha’s classes is worth it alone. She is a top educator in the color world and will always inspire creativity when paired in discussion with Gerard. This one is a must see. I can’t wait to try the placement.

  10. AMANDA V.

    Tabitha is one of the best educators I learn from. Everyone needs to watch. She is super neat, professional, and she educates with purpose, always has a road map. I love how she shares her technique’s but also encourages to add your own artistry. I always learn so much each video. Thanks XO

  11. ADRIA R.

    Tabitha never disappoints. Awesome class!


    Tabitha is an unbelievable educator. She answers questions that arise without being asked. So many “a-ha!” moments and genius placements. I would quit my job behind the chair to assist her because she is so on top of her game, and if you learn this much from an online mannequin course, I can’t even imagine what a day in the salon would be like. I was hooked during quarantine academy, and jump at the chance to further learn from her. 10000/10.


    Awesome class –

  14. ELENA A.

    Learn knowledge from people who are where you want to be!
    Thank you Tabitha!


    Fantastic class and lots of information in just one class!
    Thank you so much and i am looking forward to many more!

  16. STEVEN B.

    5 Stars all the way, Tabitha! Even after nearly 40 years in the industry, I found so many valuable insights and trade secrets to color placement, overdirection and what it provides, proper teasing and how to properly comb it out. I will NEVER forget, “Spread the Dread”. Perfect. You’re born to educate. Your clients are very lucky to have you, too.


    This video made my brain explode and I love it. So many knowledge bombs

  18. CASEY W.

    SUPER HELPFUL! I have a client coming in soon that this would be perfect for! 🙌🏽

  19. KIM A.

    I’ve taken a couple years worth of classes from a fellow online education platform and find myself migrating to hblive academy as my go to! I find the production to be better quality and more efficient. As a stylist who has specialized in cutting for many years, it was nice to have an educator who moved at a pace that was super easy to grasp. Also, to get a complete course where I was able to see a finished product without having to jump through hoops. Thank you hbLIVE academy, and a special thanks to you Tabitha! I will be following on IG and look forward to more classes!! 🤓😊

  20. DEBBIE R.

    Amazing as always! I’ve been hooked on her style since quarantine academy! Love her and Tim.

  21. BRECQUE J.

    Very practical and time-friendly technique. 10/10 would recommend Tabitha’s class; I will definitely be taking more of them. Thank you and great job!


    This class was awesome! So much valuable information. Great technique, I already used it on my coworker and we loved the results. Definitely something I will be using on the reg. So happy to be learning new things still after 14 years, and especially right now when in-person classes are not an option. Can’t wait to do another! Thanks ya’ll!

  23. RONNY C.

    Tab this class is amazing and exactly what I need for the color correction I have been texting you about! I consulted with Lupe as well as far as formulation for the ends with that demi! I will send you pics once I am done! Thanks G as well! I am so thankful for you!

  24. DEBORAH M.

    My level 4 with previous color friend decided to go blonde since she felt blah. This technique got her the perfect blonde with the perfect blend at the base so she wont feel like her roots are horrible in a month

    This is an excellent tutorial for creating max color with minimum effort. I’m very happy with the results I’m achieving thus far. Have had to adjust for darkest level hair, “feathering bleach created some major hurdles I don’t ever wish to travers again, otherwise I’m very happy with this course. Thank you!

  49. LYNDA S.

    Love this technique! So simple, so easy and the results are fantastic!

  50. KIARA G.

    amazing 10/10 recommend

  51. CECELIA P.

    This is a great video! Tabitha explains everything well, stops and shows you exactly what she is explaining and why it is important. She gives examples as to where certain techniques would work best and on what type of hair. She works slow so you can see and repeats so you can understand and remember it. She stays on task working, showing and explaining as she goes. There were great questions asked and she answered them while showing you on the manakin head. Also the camera work was awesome, up close when needed and far enough away to get a full view. I was very pleased at how this video was done and Tabitha did an awesome job. I will definitely be using this high lighting technique as it seems very easy and comes out super pretty , soft and flowing!!

  52. HECTOR Q.

    It’s the second class that I’ve had with Tabitha, a total game changer for me ❤️

  53. CHERI S.

This is my 2nd class with her and I hope she shows us more. thank you for teaching us and showing us your technique…LOVE LOVE LOVEEEEEEE

  55. RENEE S.

    This is the first HB class I’ve watched and she’s one of my favorite educators by far who I’ve learned from in 18 years. Concise communication and bonus tips and it’s a salon-friendly and time-friendly technique!!!


    I love this technique so much!! Thank you so much Tabitha for sharing your knowledge❤️

  57. ANNE P.

    Excellent Class! Helpful in every way.
    You recommended Wella “Service” PH balancing shampoo to help with tangles. I don’t see that product.
    Is there another product you recommend? I don’t use a conditioner before toning. Usually, Keep Me Vivid
    spray, but id love to achieve the balance with a
    shampoo. TYSM!!
