LEARN to cut straighter than John Deere, paint brighter than Andy Warhol, style sexier than Rachel Zoe and texture better than Instagram filters, thanks to the first hair education agency in Australia.

A must do master class for non-masters, ‘lil off the top’ is all about tailor making education for hairdressers and their salon teams.

The agency is providing a smorgasbord of techniques from cuts, colours and styles demonstrated on live models and mannequins, as well as providing tips on business and photo shoots.

Hairdressers can sign up for one-on-one sessions or take up a peep show – not an exhibition of nudie photos, but rather custom made educationals for groups to experience together.

The lads and gals behind the curtains include the Togninis family, Lance Liufau of the Loft Barbershop, Clive Allwright of Our Place Salon, Mia Devries of The Fox and The Hair Salon, plus many more industry heavyweights.

Australian Men’s Hairdresser of the Year and Australian and New Zealand Educator of the Year, Jules Tognini, said it was the first type of education agency that is a lil quirkier than the rest, but still provides real, honest training.

“We are encouraging everyday dudes and dudettes to be inspired by a look and ethos that represent all things them,” Jules said.

“During my early years as a hairdresser, I was lucky enough to have my dad, Benni, as my mentor so we thought it was a rad opportunity for hairdressers to experience the same and learn from a team of masters,” he said.

“Not only will it improve the skills of Aussie hairdressers, but it will also help them to educate their clients, so they can do the same at home.”

Salons are able to choose their educator and decide what skills they would like to learn.

Additionally, lil off the top will be partnering with evo.

“Everyone needs to remember that when you’ve got good hair, no one cares about your face.”
