“This was fantastic, I enjoyed watching all four videos and learning new techniques, the way Shay teaches is so easy to follow, I’m left just wanting to learn more. I can’t recommend this course enough.”


“Shay, Doug Hutto here. Thank you for the incredible work on this...”


“Let me tell you something... I used to work as an ambassador when SEBASTIAN Tribe started back in Slovenia, I know all nine techniques and I can’t tell you how much excitement it brought to me when i only saw this Sebastian Creative Immersion Course on *hb* However, you’re definitely going to love the BLADE/razor more once you master these techniques! Grab the opportunity, you’ll never regret it, I can not recommend this more... Join the tribe❗️ Sasho Kremich”


“So far I’ve watching the shag. I absolutely love everything about it. Watching Shay work with his hands was amazing. This is so my style. Needed the inspiration, really excited to play around with this razor cut. Video was fun to watch! Looking forward to watching the whole series!”


“I just finished watching the first 2 videos, and now I'm about to start the last 2. Shay nails it! These haircuts are done in the salon daily, at least in my salon, and the techniques that were shown were beyond helpful! I love using the blade, but have yet to perfect it and he gives so many, and I MEAN SO MANY, tips on using the blade to really do a seamless, beautiful haircut. My favorite part about these videos is that the sectionings for the cuts are simple. So many times I have watched videos with endless clips in the head and crazy sectioning, then I forget how to do it! Not with Shay, simple, sexy and super trendy! I'm a more intermediate hairdresser and find that this series can benefit beginners to advanced. Thank you Hairbrained once again for your awesome education!! This is a MUST”


“Loved this course! Basically all secrets revealed using a guarded razor. Very inspiring✨”
