“My team and I saw you at IBS in NYC and loved the way you approach haircutting and your humor. We decided to add this video of to add to our curriculum to help understand shorter layering that is more current. I love how we can utilize this structure to do even the shortest of layers!!! Thanks Ben and Gerard for making this education possible!”


“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!!”


“I’m an apprentice and I’m absolutely loving Ben Brown’s tutorials. He is a natural teacher. He teaches with finesse and is so calm and explains things so well! This lesson is one I’ve watched multiple times. It’s perfect!”


“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 !”
