What You Get From Each Lesson

Lesson 1 – Long Layer Variation

Aveda’s Bastian Casaretto is the perfect instructor to teach you the long layer variation. Starting with a simple graduated steep angle in the front areas, you’ll fine-tune your over-direction and elevation skills before working on flat layering in the back internal shape. Beautiful, soft and feminine, your long-haired clients will love you for the texture, body and movement you’ll give them.

Lesson 2 – Long Graduation with Low Fringe

The long graduation with low fringe is a youthful salon essential, delivering manageable yet flowing locks that your clients will love. Taught by ex-Vidal Sassoon educator Graham Oglesby, you’ll begin with a controlled square outline below the shoulders – incorporating internal graduated layering – then build on the cut with graduation throughout the shape.

Lesson 3 – Commercial Long Layered Shape

The long-layered shape is a salon classic. And who better to teach you than master of precision cutting, Stacey Broughton? He even shows you two possible outcomes: the commercial finish is always popular, but the creative option has a stronger feel – making it perfect for clients willing to embrace a bolder look. Either way, you’ll deliver layering, graduation and over-direction that provides body and movement.

Lesson 4 – Long Uniform Layer

Lesson 4 is all about the long, uniformed layer. Stacey steps up again to demonstrate this perfectly symmetrical look. From pivoting sections to body positioning and perfect head and finger placement, you’ll build your technical skills and learn how to distribute internal and external weight to achieve this soft, face-framing classic hairstyle.

Lesson 5 – Increased Layer

Looking for a long-layering technique that you’ll come back to time after time? Then you’ll love lesson 5. Focusing on increased layering, hairdressing icon Tracey Hughes demonstrate this crowd-pleasing style, including classic layering techniques and over-direction. Remember, body and finger positioning and perfect sectioning are crucial to the success of this salon favourite.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
