Allilon Education co-founder, Johnny Othona, and Master Stylist and Men’s Hair Specialist, Jonathan Corby, embarked on an educational journey to Holland earlier this month, delivering the brand’s four-day Primary Shapes courses to Dutch hairdressers looking to take their skills to the next level.
The renowned education company, which specialises in producing educational hair shows and seminars and exploring shapes and form in haircutting and colouring techniques, designed the Primary Shapes course to introduce Allilon Education’s basic principles of hairdressing. The course can be taught at any stage of a hairdresser’s career, helping them to understand the foundation of their craft. The intense private tuition consists of demonstrations, lectures and hands-on workshops, which are designed to give the stylist a better understanding in creating beautiful shapes.
Teaching Davines salon owners, educators, academy owners and stylists at a satellite academy, the Primary Shapes course took place from 8-11 February and was attended by eight students. The ratio of one educator to four students allowed for a more comprehensive form of education, a hallmark of the Allilon brand.
From March onwards, key educators from the Allilon Education team will be teaching the secrets of their craft to students in Canada and South Africa, delivering professional hair courses from its 2015 syllabus.
Says Johnny Othona, Director, Allilon Education: “Allilon Education firmly believes in profiling the brand globally to spread the Allilon philosophy far and wide. We love meeting new people and experiencing different cultures and it helps our brand maintain sustainability in the current climate. We learn something new on every trip and look forward to returning to the salon to distill our knowledge with the team.”
