“I wish that she would have done more than just two techniques. The video spent a lot of time watching her brush bleach all the way down the hair shaft of each foil, section after section. Maybe should have done just a half of a head. And than moved on to other foiling techniques. On the flip side. Great teaching video. Always can learn something and pick up little tricks of the trade. Thank you for the education.”


“Overall, I think it was a good video. I wish that I could have seen where she was in reference to the face when doing the top section. All I see is hair and I have no idea where it was in reference to the client's face.”


“Both lessons have been updated with the final look!”


“Thanks both lessons have been updated with the final look!”


“Thank you so much for this class.. I loved it! Already used it and its great! Please post brick final look. Thank you!”


“I am confused with the top section for brick placement. Picture is different than Cassandra presentation. Hard to see how she really section that top part of the head.”


“Loved the techniques however I gave this a 3 star because I showed this to my class and guess I should have watched the whole thing because I was very shocked and disappointed that we didn’t get to see the finished result! I did see in the comments that it was an error, do you know when we will be able to get the finished look?”


“I am so sorry to leave another message about the brick layer pattern this will be the last message as i was watching this video again i just had to voice my opinion which i forgot to mention earlier i wish there was a way to edit my comments i would have just added to my previous comments so i did not have to add so many more on this page but i feel that when she was showing the pattern of foiling on the very top portion of the head she should have tilted the mannequin head slightly back so we could have had a better perspective of what she was doing on the top of the head i am still so confused and to be honest as much as i love the technique showed here i am not comfortable trying to attempt this on a client at least the top portion because i am not sure what to do it was hard to see here for what it is worth in all my comments here and a few others i feel that this video should be done again or at least the areas that are mentioned here with a better knowledge of viewing before performing this on a client and i do hope you will add what you left out the final result!!!”


“Thanks for lettings us know, we will have Cassandra check her diagrams, and we are working on getting the final looks added to the lessons, we will email all who took the courses when this is fixed.”


“In the picture it is just horizontal in the side all the way”


“Thank you it was very informative and full of useful tips and tricks , just The directions in the Photo of the bricklay in downloads for sides is not the way Cassandra showing in the video ( it starts with vertical sections and pivots towards up to a horizontal section and I really wanted to see the end result for bricklay in second video and the back head of the manikin in 360-22 at the end of the first video .”


“Photo of the bricklay! And would have been nice to see the back of the head finished of the 360, 22 maybe post a photo of the finished bricklay on Facebook for all of us to see”


“Photo of the bricklay! And would have been nice to see the back of the head finished of the 360, 22”


“I also would like to mention on my previous comment that the end result of the bricklay lesson two did not even show the final result that was mentioned in the video just another disappointment”


“I just want to explain why i only gave this educational video three stars i was excited to get educated on how to do a full highlight with less foils and less time spent which she did show here and i love the method she used but the issue i have is i feel that i spent good money here and between the first and second video when the other side of the head is showed they speed up the video and the video is not exactly facing the area so i couldn't grasp and see the other front side of the head it should be slowed down not rushed i could watch a video on youtube with this kind of quality also as she was done with the back and started to explain what she is doing as she is going to the top of the head that load music is playing and you cannot even hear what she is saying i am just giving some feedback on how poor this video was done in that respect but i do love her training methods and i am excited to try them and hope that they will perfect on future videos”


“How do I save this info to share with my team”


“I love the technique and looking forward to trying it and sharing it with my staff. would like to have seen the end result!”


“This is great thank you”
