“Wow. Take your razor cutting skills to the highest level. I love Gerard's teaching style. Very detailed into how, when and why to use each technique. You can tell he really enjoys his craft and sharing his vast knowledge. He also uses easy to understand and follow terminology, which I really appreciate. Thanks Gerard for another great course!”

“I am so excited to try this out on my kids, family, self (shh!) I'm just a hobby stylist and am so grateful to have access to this level of education. Thank you Gerard for giving me a peak into the professional world. This knocks the socks off any of the hours of youtube tutorials I've watched and the cost is minimal compared to the course my favorite instagram stylist is offering.
The diagrams are so helpful, Gerard's simple and repetitive instructions help me hold onto the concepts, the different angles are great.
Possibly the most helpful part is watching the students practice and seeing how Gerard helps them work through challenges that I know I will come up against as well.
These videos are so well done. Gerard's passion for hair and compassion for students really comes through. I am grateful and humbled.”

“This is the perfect video for someone who needs a more technical understanding of the razor. While most tend to use it visually and intuitively, Gerard bridges that gap between the proficient scissor handler and the softer approach of the razor.
Do not skip the Hands On section at the end.”

“Great in depth look at the "how's" and "why's" of how to use the unguarded razor as well as beautifully show how to demonstrations for two haircuts. Very well worth the investment. Highly recommended.”

“Thank you so much, Gerard, for sharing your extensive knowledge. You explain everything thoroughly and make it very easy to understand. I’m so glad I watched the “hands on” section as well because I learned a lot from watching you help the students through the cut too. You turned my fear of the razor into excitement!! I’ve done the long layer razor technique on a few guests and the results were beautiful! Thank you again! I hope that you will keep sharing craft hairdressing online! I love and appreciate it and you!!”
