Already making waves for 2019, those clever folk at ghd have devised an education programme that will have you signing up to courses quicker than you can say, good hair day. Taking a browse, it’s clear you can forget step-by-steps and traditional seminars. This year it’s all about empowering you, the stylist, from the get go. So whether it’s sprucing up your social media skills, getting behind the camera or learning from the best session stylists, we reckon this is ghd’s best education offering yet.

To kickstart the year, we’ve teamed up with ghd to showcase a course a week throughout January, to give you a taste of what’s on offer. First up…

The Advanced Edit: The Shoot

Building a library of images is a must-have for any hairdresser, whether you’re creating salon content for social media or building your session work profile. But there’s more to shooting than just doing great hair. This two day workshop takes you behind the scenes on set with Luke to learn exactly what makes a great shoot, how to maximise publicity from your end results and how to come up with trend-led concepts. And, to bring it all to life, you’ll end the workshop by producing your own shoot.

Day one

First you’ll go on set with the ghd team and learn what makes an award winning shoot – hair design, make up, styling – before shadowing Luke as he works with the photographer to produce finished images.

Day two

This is your chance to work with Luke to bring your own concepts to life and make your own shoot. Ghd will provide two models, the tools, products, art direction, set, photographer, makeup artist and wardrobe. At the end of the day you’ll walk away with four images and one round of retouching – all of which can be used for industry awards.
