May was a jam-packed month from start to finish for Project X, spending their first team day with bespoke cutting educator and Project X mentor, Sarah McCulloch at Nashwhite Salon in Warwick.  Sarah is an educator of bespoke cutting courses and was a Project X Team member in 2023. The day focused on all things cutting, as Sarah took them through her classics cutting class, running through 9 haircuts with a demo on one technique with 2 shapes. The team then got the opportunity to work creating this technique, homing in on bone structure and why individual shapes are used to suit the client.

The team then spent the day at the House of Sassoon, Soho London, to have a masterclass in cutting & colouring by theSassoon Academy team, Pink Grubb & Daniel McCourt.
