Dress Work & Bridal Hair | November 7 – 8, 2021


Join master stylist Cathy Davys as she leads you through Classic to Creative Cutting 

This two-day program at the 540 Lodge facilities is about connecting the dots and how to transition from classic to creative. Cathy will teach you how you must think and plan to take the salon guest from classic to edgy. We will review vertical, horizontal lines and disconnection, uncovering how they fit into design, balance and form. This program will teach you how to create for the individual – personalizing fashion forward hairstyles for your salon guests.

Who is this for?

Cathy has designed this program for stylists who have a good understanding of the classic skills of hair design, but are afraid of how to take their work to the next creative level. It is for the stylist who needs to add creativity to their salon repertoire, and to increase a stylists designer detail that will have a salon guest coming back for more.
