In the early 1970s I graduated with a degree in education. My college training taught me many things, but most important for the production of my videos was learning how we acquire new skills.
Learning new skills in a video format, and having the confidence to put those skills into practice requires a few things:
1. An effective how-to video must CLEARLY show the complete process, and the various skills that go into the desired final product–in this case a precision haircut.
2. Besides demonstrating the skills, they must be THOROUGHLY explained in a way that compliments what the learner sees.
3. The information needs to be presented in a SEQUENCE that moves from the easier skills to the more difficult in a gradual way.
These three essential ingredients produce a very effective learning tool. Following my how-to will result in immediate haircutting successes, which in turn creates a CONFIDENT haircutter. A confident haircutter who always strives for quality work is bound to be a SUCCESSFUL haircutter.
The best and least expensive way to improve your looks is to smile.
