We recommend you give yourself plenty of time to park and plan to arrive at approximately 9:30am. We provide coffee, tea, and water along with breakfast fruits and nutritious snacks. Class begins at 10:00am. The first half of the class begins with a walk-thru of the space so that you can get to know your surroundings and make yourself at home. The first half of the day consists of introductions, an overview of class materials, theory and live demonstrations and presentations.
At approximately 1:00pm, the class breaks for about 45 mins to an hour. During this time, we welcome you to enjoy the surrounding areas and restaurants or cafes to have lunch (we provide you with a map of restaurants nearby). When you return, the second half of the class begins with the hands-on workshop portion. Depending on the class you have enrolled in, you will be working on a mannequin head (human hair) OR a live workshop model (we will provide either one for you). To find out if the class you have enrolled in works with mannequin heads or live workshop model, simply look under the class description.
The class typically ends at approximately 5:00pm. Our hands-on workshop portion allows you to implement the techniques you have learned in the class. The teacher will give you direction as well as guide you through this process.We believe in fostering an intimate, fun and creative learning environment.

We have two separate avenues that might best fit what you need if you are interested in being a hair model with diPietro Todd.
The first is the option of becoming a hair model/client for our Development program. This program provides advanced technical training to our apprentices who are licensed cosmetologists. Essentially a graduate school for hairdressers, they are closely guided by our team of top instructors in haircutting and coloring on real-life clients. If would like to experience top tier service for an entry level price, please email email@example.com or call 415-693-5549 for more information. This service is provided every Monday (except on holidays). Haircuts start at $15, Color from $20 to $30.
The second option is becoming a hair model for our Academy. The diPietro Todd Academy offers cutting, color, and styling seminars throughout the year to outside hair professionals from all over the U.S. and the hair industry at large. We require live workshop models for some of these seminars. This service is complimentary and only offered on a Sunday when/if a seminar is being taught. If you are interested in being on this list, please email a current picture of you and your hair along with your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This option is in great demand and is perfect for a salon who has a large group of hair stylists or colorists (6 or more) who are interested in taking a course at our Academy. We are able to send an educator to your location to teach a customized “in-salon” course for your entire staff of hair stylists or colorists. For information on this, please email email@example.com for more details.
