Laura VanderMoere is the Director of Education for Wahl Clipper Corporation, North America Professional Division. Her basic training has been in barbering, but her approach is not just for men. “Men wear their hair long, women wear their hair short, and they both utilize color, so it doesn’t matter what goes on under the cape as long as you understand the fundamentals and your canvas, regardless of the gender,” she says. Laura loves cutting hair, but she is also incredibly passionate when it comes to teaching about style, tools, trends and technology. Using her artistic touch and passion for education, she effectively communicates in a manner that is easy to understand, regardless of the participant’s skill level. While there are a handful of core techniques that all barbers learn, Laura believes an artist must push past that foundation to create style.
