Glam Squad Shines as Guest Artists at Paul Mitchell!

PMDeenaKylaPMGroup2 PMAllModels

Studio Savvy is ecstatic to share with all of you how wonderful our experience at Paul Mitchell the School San Diego was. And as promised, we have many pictures to share from our event. As guest artists, we were able to share our knowledge and our skills with these new and curious members of our hair world. Deena did a phenomenal job, not only at demonstrating and explaining a beautiful haircut on one of our own, Kyla, but also at leading the discussion in such a graceful yet very fun, inspirational manner. Kassidy was great in explaining her color application as well as touching on certain tips and tricks she recommends to any colorist in the business. Victoria and Brooke did an awesome job not only on the physical presentation of their up styles, but also in explaining their techniques in how to achieve a similar look, as well as interacting with the students and Deena and Kassidy to keep the presentation entertaining and educational. We are all so proud of each other and the hard work we have put into making this a great experience for the future professionals at Paul Mitchell, and for ourselves. Please, stay tuned for our next Glam Squad adventure!
