Education notes


On May 20-22 Marcy Moreno, Valerie Velez, Nicole Favazzo and Chelsea Dresser will be in SOHO, NYC attending Arrojo Studio’s Advanced Razor Seminar!

We’re excited to build on our wonderful relationship with Arrojo studios and bring Nick’s advanced razoring techniques from New York to Cape Coral. In this video, he describes some razor fundamentals. He makes everything look easy, but is a gifted teacher who can break down the process of wielding this “lethal weapon,” as he calls it, to unleash the lethal looks that can only be attained with a sharp razor. We are thrilled to be able to bring back these cutting edge techniques to our discerning Southwest Florida clients.

The success of the Razor Fundamentals seminar led many stylists to talk to me about learning more about razor-cutting. This became my inspiration for Razor Advanced. For those that already have experience of the razor, this three-day seminar focuses on ultra-modern, trendsetting, and sophisticated razor techniques that allow you to unlock true creative potential. All these techniques have been developed, and are now practiced, at ARROJO studio and include: texturizing, creating swinging bangs, panel cutting, forming geometric and rounded shapes, making a weightless line with swing and movement, shaping rounded bangs, undercutting through the back sections, and how to use a razor when cutting close to the root. Each technique is highlighted in demos before you execute them in supervised model and mannequin workshops. Razor Advanced is designed to give increased flexibility, creative freedom, and boosted confidence. It’s a terrific seminar to improve and advance your razor-cutting skill-set. – Nick Arrojo
