“Wow wow wow, i have been following Judith for some time now on instagram, and was so stoked at the opportunity to participate in this class. I have been examining her haircuts and trying to figure out how she gets such short hair to have that effortlessly "long hair" feel. This was such an excellent class and i cannot wait to create using these techniques behind the chair.”

“Yeah, this is amazing. Great attention to detail and teaching us how to create that. I feel like I understand texturing better, and how to look at the natural form that the hair is taking and going with that.”

“Sweet class. The techniques are invaluable to anyone looking to create texture with scissors. I loved the no stress method of integrating disconnected bits using carved channels. It's a pleasure to see a woman cutting specialist teaching a class. There are fewer of us than there are men and it's important that we learn to come out and share what we're doing in our own voices! This class is a MUST SEE.”
