One Size Does Not Fit All

Creating looks that capture a person's unique beauty is quite a skill. In the world of hair, one size does not fit all and each look must be tailored to highlight each individual's features. Ricardo, a Bella Bethesda stylist, understands that there's a unique formula behind every updo and recently attended a class taught by long-hair expert, Martin Parsons. What was Ricardo's goal for the two-day class? To strengthen his skills to best customize the perfect updo for each client that sits in his chair.

Only a hop, skip and a jump away in Baltimore, Ricardo and fellow stylists learned the tricks to Parsons' renowned techniques and incredible hairstyles. The class focused on 16 looks and provided insight on how to create gorgeous styles for all occasions including black-tie events, weddings, and proms in just fifteen minutes.

During this fast-paced course, stylists practiced cutting edge tricks such as knotting, lacing, and folding. Furthermore, stylists learned how to train their clients to prepare their hair before coming to the salon in effort to make them a part of the styling process.

With a background in engineering, Ricardo is able to provide his clients with a unique outlook. "Design with a purpose" is his motto. "I can look at something in a mathematical way and determine what will look best based on proportion and color balance," said Ricardo.

Using this viewpoint, he is able to provide a thorough consultation and achieve a personalized look for each client. Following this first updo class, Ricardo is excited to continue learning and to be a part of his clients' special occasions.
