Architectural Hair Education has been born out of the desire to give back to other hairdressers. Cathy Davy’s belief is that you must have a strong foundation as a starting point for your work. Hair design is architecture – if the foundation is not strong, the house falls over.

Cathy’s programs are designed to give hairdressers the confidence to be on the the floor earlier, to ignite passion again in those who may have taken a break from the journey, and to train the future trainers to mastery. Architectural Hair Education is for lifelong learners, those who want to be the best and to have longevity in the hair industry.

With over forty years of industry experience, Cathy is a professional with how to pay it forward in your career and life. Her bold hairdressing techniques will teach you how to not only connect the dots in the salon, but also in life.
