Pivot Point International, a global leader in beauty education, announces the launch of Meta: Men, the latest installment of the company's totally new salon educational brand created to satisfy the growing demands on hair designers for more men's hair styles and variations. This collection provides a range of looks from classic to trendy for every type of client.
Meta: Men offers a body of work featuring four classic looks, four contemporary looks and shear-over-comb techniques to inspire stylists and provide fresh ideas to share with male clients. The versatile designs in Meta: Men are suitable for busy professional lives and offer easy transitions to trendy, low-maintenance looks for nightlife and weekends.
The name Meta, derived from Greek, means "beyond." Meta continuing education products will embody this meaning by encouraging beauty and grooming professionals to continually refresh their skills and re-inspire passion for their careers.
Meta: Men components include:
The book: Each Meta: Men cut is presented on several fashion, concept and technical pages. Pivot Point utilizes a unique system of easy-to-understand educational icons together with many photo overlays to tell a powerful, visual story on how to create the styles.
The education: Conceptual education is delivered through four classic sculptures, four contemporary cuts, supported by technical step-by-steps for salon-typical grooming and styling. Clipper and shear-over-comb techniques are spotlighted with help from design decision charts so even non-Pivot Point trained stylists can quickly grasp the concepts of the workshop.
The 70 minute DVD features eight step-by-steps to assure greater understanding of the hair designs. To help stylists view each hair design in greater detail, multiple high definition camera perspectives have been employed. A five-minute fashion video is also available that showcases styles.
Extras include educator support materials, lesson plans, posters, banners, marketing templates and generic Meta certificates.
Salons may purchase Pivot Point education, including Meta: 050 and Meta: Men by contacting at 800-886-4247. Meta: Men and future Meta salon education will be taught at industry events, tradeshows and in countries around the world.
