“Learning with James changed everything about how I cut hair! He enabled me to see structure, process and craftsmanship of hairdressing in a new way. I was amazed with the amount of knowledge, enthusiasm and positivity he shared. By the end of the course I felt like I could accomplish anything and I came away with a renewed sense of inspiration and motivation for my work. James has a high-intensity but patient energy that is so infectious it got me excited to go back and work! I can’t wait to have him teaching in our salon again!”

"The first time I met James I was being used as a hair model. I had started cosmetology school many years before, but got discouraged and never finished. After listening to James teach the class I got so inspired I went back to school and completed the program. It’s truly incredible to see the effect a great education can have, and I am living proof. James has helped me find a whole new appreciation for my craft that I have never forgotten."
