Perming and Relaxing Hair

MHD’s collection of perming and relaxing hair training videos demonstrates a variety of chemical treatments for adding texture to, or smoothing the hair. The video tutorials cover all popular perm wind patterns and chemical applications, as well as popular smoothing or relaxing techniques such as a Keratin smoothing application, which is similar to a Brazilian blowdry. Hairdressing experts including Tracy Hayes, Michelle Thompson and Tracey Robinson, Charmaine Piche and Nathan Walker demonstrate step-by-step tutorials of the major techniques on a variety of textures, from type 1 to type 4 hair. We recommend that assistants and trainees watch and practice the perm winds particularly as these techniques also help to strengthen the fingers, which is essential for all hairdressers!
