Mike Karg and Jo Blackwell-Preston held their first educational event at the Karg & Blackwell Academy NYC. The sold-out interactive and hands-on seminar was considered a huge success.

“We are taking a whole new approach to education,” said Karg and Blackwell-Preston. “Our mission is to educate and teach hair designers innovative hair techniques for everyday salon life, as well as creative ways to approach their clients.

Karg & Blackwell-Preston shared the latest techniques in Dry Hair Cutting and Creative Color Placement. In the morning session, the salon-friendly looks were demonstrated step-by-step exactly as they are presented in their newly launched “Cut & Color” book. During the afternoon session, the participants were split into two groups as to provide more individual attention and personal coaching from Mike and Jo. Every participant was invited to try out and experience all of the Karg shears on mannequin heads as well. The day came to a close with each attendee receiving a certificate of achievement to present at their salon stations.
