Classics never go out of style but can have many variations. With a tweak of an angle, a splash of color, or an updated finish, a classic is easily reinterpreted into today’s most current trends. Show off your skill with ready-to-wear styles in haircutting and finishing illustrating modern, commercial styles inspired by classic looks.

o What complimented this look?
o Consider wardrobe, styling, make-up and hair color
o How can I take this to the next level?
