“In recent years, Ben Brown has easily become my favorite teacher/mentor. It's something about the way he teaches. Very easy to understand and beautiful end results. This tutorial was awesome and I will probably use the techniques tomorrow, since it is a very salon friendly haircut. Highly recommend!!”

“Ben amazing class !! I love Ben’s method and have been doing I guess I would say a much more complicated / more time consuming exact version of this , but Ben just Simplified this for me . We are always needing more time as hair dressers in my opinion . I feel like I jsut learned a shortcut and now gained an extra 30 minutes so I won’t have to shovel/inhale food quickly in between clients . This is def 5 stars . And hoping to see more of Ben brown here !”
