The MT Masterclass

What’s this? Salon owner Melissa Timperley launches an app that offers a ‘professional boot-camp’ in precision cutting. The MT Masterclass features step-by-step videos demonstrating some of Melissa’s most requested cuts. This includes the one-length bob, pixie cut, face-framing layers and the ‘InstaFringe’. Sounds intriguing!  


The MT Masterclass is an extension of Melissa’s one-day precision cutting course, which has been running monthly in Manchester this year. You can now access Melissa’s expert training sessions anywhere, anytime; you only need an Apple or Android device.    

Melissa designed the app to enhance your cutting confidence and help refine your cutting techniques. It is a response to feedback from those unable to attend Melissa’s course in-person. Melissa, Sassoon-trained herself, devised the MT Masterclass after personally re-training her salon team. She noticed gaps in their cutting expertise and realised the situation would likely be the same in salons nationwide. So, Melissa compiled a comprehensive guide to precision cutting, utilising the years of experience and expertise she has acquired throughout her award-winning career.  

Elevate your precision cutting

“Whether you’re a recently qualified hairdresser or have been working in the industry for decades, I created this app to help you elevate your precision cutting,” says Melissa. “From creating perfectly straight lines to understanding how to texturise without the use of thinning scissors, MT Masterclass will become your go-to app for honing haircuts that may have previously thrown you into panic.’
