ONLINE ACADEMY

Online academy provides profound understanding of haircutting skill.

Doing one course after another students immerse in the skill and systematically accumulate knowledge with the help of video lessons and lectures.

Information is provided visually and in detail, which gives our students the opportunity to master the basic elements without a trainer and prepare for practical training during our seminars.

IMPORTANT!

MASTERIING OF THE SKILL AT HIGH LEVEL TAKES A LOT OF TIME AND DEMANDS PATIENCE. IN ORDER TO MASTER THE FUNDAMENTALS COMPLETELY ONE NEEDS TO PRACTICE FOR A YEAR OR TWO.

IMPORTANT!

YOU SHOULD NOT TRY THE FUNDAMENTAL DESIGNS ON YOUR CLIENTS UNTIL YOUR RESULTS RESEMBLE THE ONES IN VIDEO LESSONS.

YOU MUST NOT TEST THE DESIGNS ON PEOPLE WITHOUT A TRAINER. IT WILL RUIN YOUR REPUTATION AND RESULT IN DISSAPOINTMENT.

Consistency of education implies a comprehensive step-by-step approach.

It is essential to start with the main fundamental course Matrix9. This course explains all the necessary elements of the construction of planar and dimensional surfaces on the three-dimensional bone structure with the help of the three fundamental shapes (round, triangular and square).
The knowledge of Matrix9 system will allow you to combine planar and dimensional surfaces with each other. Thus, you will create complex designs.
We strongly recommend following the lessons in the right order according to the table in which they are listed.
Wrong sequence will lead to less effective results.

How to do the course:

TO MASTER THE SKILL YOU WILL NEED A MANNEQUIN HEAD WITH 70% OF STRAIGHT NATURAL HAIR.
1. Watch the lectures attached to the course. Theory reveals the basic concepts of design construction.
1) Lecture “UNIVERSAL RULES OF FUNDAMENTAL DESIGNS” introduces you to the essentials of professions related to design, such as architecture and fine art, and equates our skill to them.
2) Lecture “LINE” provides deeper knowledge of external silhouette and introduces you to the important details of our skill.
3) Lecture “BONE STRUCTURE” expands your understanding of the skill and explains that we work not only with the material but also with the bone structure, which is the foundation. Profound knowledge of the foundation allows us to follow the main laws of design.
4) Lecture “CONSULTATION” is dedicated to you as a professional, as well as to work ethics and culture in general.
2. After learning the theory, you can start watching video lessons.

Watch all the videos one by one; you will grasp the general idea of the course.

After watching all the videos study the diagram of every design.

In order to construct a fundamental design you have to know its diagram. If you do not know it by heart and cannot draw it without distortions, you will not be able to build a functional design.

We advise you not to practice designs on people unless you can draw the diagrams of nine fundamental designs and one additional design without distortions.
You will need at least a week to study the diagrams. You should copy two diagrams a day, and then try to draw them from memory. Compare with the original and find all the differences and inaccuracies.

This exercise develops your creative thinking and visualization, which you will need during the construction of the design.
When you know all the diagrams by heart, you can start practicing the designs and transfer the two-dimensional diagrams on the three-dimensional bone structure.

Study the designs one by one and try to construct them on a mannequin.

Have the corresponding diagram in front of you and construct the design gradually following the instructions of the video lesson. Pay attention to the location of the sections on the diagram.

Follow the instructions of the teacher step by step.

Pause the video and copy the action. Follow this principle until the end of the video lesson.

The most important concepts that you must understand are the general principle of design construction, its geometry and the weight dynamics. The weight must always follow the cheekbone slope.

At the beginning, you should not concentrate on the perfection of the silhouette. It is not your main task at the moment.

You primary goals are:

  1. To learn the diagram and to understand how to transfer it to the bone structure. (Copy every movement in the video lesson. See how accurately the diagram is applied on the bone structure. Pay attention to the precision of each movement.)
  2. To make sure that your body center is always parallel to the planar surface that you are building. You must also learn to follow the rule of parallel alignment of the section, your body center, your fingers and the cutting angle.
  3. To control the over-direction and the elevation. It results in the weight mirroring the cheekbone slope and a clean silhouette without distortions.
  4. To maintain even tension. It will help to avoid distortions of the silhouette.
  5. To watch the position of the mannequin head carefully so that it is easier to control the previous elements.

IT IS NOT EASY TO CONTROL ALL FIVE ELEMENTS. MASTERIING OF THE SKILL AT HIGH LEVEL TAKES A LOT OF TIME AND DEMANDS PATIENCE. IN ORDER TO MASTER THE FUNDAMENTALS COMPLETELY ONE NEEDS TO PRACTICE FOR A YEAR OR TWO.
IMPORTANT!

YOU SHOULD NOT TRY THE FUNDAMENTAL DESIGNS ON YOUR CLIENTS UNTIL YOUR RESULTS RESEMBLE THE ONES IN VIDEO LESSONS.
YOU MUST NOT TEST THE DESIGNS ON PEOPLE WITHOUT A TRAINER. IT WILL RUIN YOUR REPUTATION AND RESULT IN DISSAPOINTMENT.

The order of designs to practice on mannequins:

1-Triangular line
2-Square line
3-Round line
4-Triangular layers on maximum length
5-Square graduation
6-Square layers
7-Round layers on medium length (additional design)
8-Triangular graduation
9-Round graduation.
10-Round layers on short length
We recommend practicing every design at least 3-5 times on a mannequin before you try it on a client.
Each design can be constructed twice on one mannequin to minimize the expenses. You can do it in its maximum and minimal length.
The range of length in which each design works is very important. Make sure you understand it from video lessons and diagrams.
It takes 6 months to do the course.
The desirable pace of study is one mannequin in two weeks.
You should construct every design twice, in its maximum length and in its minimal length. Total: 20 designs in two weeks.
This pace will lead to rapid growth and best results.
You will need to be devoted and disciplined. You have to chose the days and decide how much time you will spend practicing.

TECHNICAL SKILL, JUST LIKE ANY OTHER ACCURATE AND ESSENTIAL SKILL, DEMANDS DEVOTION, REGULAR TRAINING AND TIME.

IT IS LIKE DOING SPORTS PROFESSIONALLY OR PLAYING A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT. Everybody understands what needs to be done in order to become a prodigy. Our skill is not an exception.

After doing MATRIX9 course and passing exams you will be ready to move on to the next courses – COMBINING OF FUNDAMENTAL SHAPES or CLASSIC MEN’S DESIGNS.
WE ADVISE YOU AGAINST TRYING MORE COMPLICATED COMBINATIONS BEFORE MASTERING BASIC ONES. YOU WILL NOT HAVE STABLE PROGRESS OR LEARN TO BUILD DESIGNS WITH CORRECT PROPORTIONS.

You must do all the courses like this.

After finishing MATRIX9 course, you will be disciplined and you will know how to do the following courses.
GOOD LUCK TO YOU! YOU ARE WELCOME AT OUR SEMINARS WITH THE NEW KNOWLEDGE AND READY TO LEARN THE DETAILS OF DESIGN CONSTRUCTION USING A GEOMETRICAL METHOD.
