Edward Hemmings: Make 2020 The Year of Success

There’s no getting away from it. 2020 is just around the corner. And MHD Global Ambassador Edward Hemmings is in planning mode.

Read on to find out what’s in store at Alan d Hairdressing Education – and to get your hands on an exclusive discount that’s guaranteed to make 2020 your best year yet when it comes to succeeding as a stylist or barber.

Building your skills? Technique never goes out of fashion

The bob haircut

It’s that wonderful time of year when you can’t help but start to assess what you’ve achieved in the last 12 months – and think about planning ahead for the next 12.

What have you got planned? What’s worked this year and what hasn’t? What will you do differently in 2020?

As educators, we start by looking at what we teach, how it’s taught and whether changes are needed. Fashions come and go with the seasons, but exceptional hairdressing is always all about technique. Once that’s there, it’s simple to adapt what you know in response to the latest trends. By ensuring that we teach technique, we give Alan d students a robust foundation from which to build their skills and progress their careers.

The bob haircut is a prime example. From a fashion perspective, its length varies significantly, but the techniques you use to cut a bob remain the same. So once you’ve mastered graduation and layering – as well as point and slice cutting – it’s relatively simple to adapt what you’ve learned to keep your customers on trend. Similarly, a great blow dry relies on understanding volume and brush control – and that applies whether you’re creating curl or a smooth finish.

The focus on techniques is just one of the reasons that I was drawn to MHD. We use it as a teaching tool as it gives us the power to access any technique we need. It also acts as a great library of fashion and trend.

Thanks to the MHD platform – and the way we’ve been able to create personised learning pathways using playlist – 2019 has been a year which has seen our apprentices excel when it comes to end point assessments.
