Education is one of the things we do that sets us apart from other hair studios. I feel it necessary to tell you a little bit about this so you can see how cool it is that we take time to do this. Why is education for your designer important?
We live in a world that is continually evolving. It’s so vital to keep up on the latest trends and progressions of the fashion world. We’re fortunate enough to have a great relationship with Arrojo who is also very like-minded and values education. And to be a spit shot from NYC is a huge blessing in itself.
Did you know that in order to receive a cosmetology license in the state of NJ, you need only 1200 in-class hours and to pass a written and practical exam? The test that you must perform is the same one they’ve been using for decades with only the foundations, the very basic parts of our industry. Unless you want finger-waves and pin curls, chances are that someone right out of beauty school won’t be able to help you with your modern hair design. Not a traditional beauty school anyway. Although I do think finishing beauty school is a pivotal part of working in our industry, it’s literally only the beginning. The education journey starts when you finish, and shouldn’t end, ever.
At CUT, we’re committed to all of our designers attending a minimum of 6 classes a year! We typically exceed the minimum because we’re so passionate about education. Our apprentices have training weekly with the designers teaching them different tips and techniques in all areas of hair cutting, coloring and styling. That way when they’re done apprenticing, they’ll be able to take care of all your hair needs.
Next time you’re in ask your designer what they learned at their latest class and what you can get that’s different from the norm. We’re always learning, always evolving and mastering our techniques so we can keep you having the hottest trends and styles. Not only are we educated, but we want to share our knowledge with you! Starting in the new year we will have additional styling classes for you, our client. Learning to perfect your hair at home so it looks great after you leave the studio too! If you’re interested, please let us know, and we can send you an invite before we open it up to everyone else. We’d love to teach and assist you anyway we can.
Spread the word and let your friends know about our education at CUT, because no one should keep something so lovely a secret. See you soon!
