Hairbrained Teach In After NAHA

A master jam of Hairbrained Community members, sharing their passion!

With so many talented individuals in Las Vegas, for NAHA, this past weekend, we invited our community’s finest educators to be a part of Teach In on Monday, July 13, during PBA Beauty Week.

The room of 300 attendees was treated to an intimate and in-depth seminar. Demonstrations ranged from editorial to Avant-garde styling by Charlie Price and Jake Thompson. Additionally, Lupe Voss shared her unique brand of Hair Color Magic.

Next, Aaron Johnson and Douglas McCoy showed their signature cutting styles and discussed how they have used as a platform to connect and grow as educators. They where joined by Mainentrance Artists: DJ Riggs and Berry Bachen, who blew the crowd away with their cut and color synergy and expressive education.

Finally, a family reunion of sorts featuring former and current Sassoon Academy team members; Stephen Moody, DJ Muldoon, Gerard Scarpaci and Traci Sakosits. With Stephen leading as the mentor, this segment focused on perpetuating Vidal’s legacy of scissor craftsmanship, education and camaraderie between hairdressers.

All in all, it was an incredible experience focused on the love of hair and ultimately putting talent and passion before promotion!
