Tutorial 2: Create curls from straight locks
The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. So while our first Snowden Hill lesson was all about curly to straight, tutorial 2 takes the opposite approach by showing you how to make naturally straight gorgeously wavy.
Prepare for working on a range of techniques, including backcombing, creating movement and volume, and product and brush use. The loopy, luscious curls you’ll create will be hugely popular with your clients.
Tutorial 3: Blow dry mid-length hair and place a fringe
Your blow drying technique is instrumental when it comes to bringing out the best in a cut or creating a particular look. For clients with mid-length hair and a fringe, this Snowden Hill tutorial is a must-see.

Tutorial 4: Unlock your braiding potential
From brilliant blow drying to beautiful braiding, the focus on Snowden’s skills has shifted for our fourth featured tutorial.
Demonstrating this essential session technique, Snowden will teach you how to create a tight double braid through the back of the hair and a single braid and fine veil through the front. With insight and advice on brush use, plaiting, pinning and product use, you’ll learn how to create an ethereal look that reduces weight. Stunning!
Tutorial 5: Get elegant with the reverse horizontal roll up-do
Last but not least, Snowden Hill demonstrates the reverse horizontal roll up-do in tutorial 5.
