Guest Blog: Sam's Playlist

Hi Everyone! 

I’m so excited to announce that I will be hosting a series of weekly blog posts with American Salon and their audience, YOU! American Salon has been sharing stories and information with stylist for decades, I’m thrilled to partner with them to bring you some of my own stories from the road, as well as share my favorite playlist for digital education to inspire you in your success.

This week, I've selected one of our viewer favorites - "How to add layers without compromising the perimeter."

This session was inspired by the many questions I get about how to best deal with guests that have medium to long hair that want to add layers, but keep the length and weight in the perimeter. 

The technique I'm sharing is a great solution for all hair types, especially fine hair that too many tend to over layer.  

Hope you enjoy this first video!

Aspire for More!
