Welcome to CORE12

 Wed 21st August 2024 6:00 PM - Wed 6th November 2024 6:00 PM
 Online, Zoom
Our 12 week core cutting program is modelled on the colour specialist programs, how so?

It’s one lesson a week for 12 weeks!! All classes are live and online, all classes will be recorded so each participant can watch the tutorial as many times as they need.

All tutorials will be added to a private instagram page 🙂

Each week the participants will be tasked with a lesson, this lesson will have theory as well as practical assessments.

How are they assessed?

Each participant will send me pictures and videos of their shape. Based on this each person may get feedback and may need to redo aspects of their shape. The idea is to get results and not just pass things that need more work, I will communicate with each person if they need additional help.

So lets get you some dates 

How does it work?

This is not compulsory!  If you don't want to cut along or do the haircut after the class you don't have to, you will get more out of the class if you submit you cuts to Ben as he can assess and help you if you need any feedback.

A video showing you how to submit your haircut will be added to the CORE19 private instagram page helping show you how to film your end result and how to take pictures.

What if my haircut is wrong?

Firstly Ben is here to coach you not judge, he will message you personally and help you with explanations and advice. You may need to recut or tweak your result to pass.

Will Ben supervise me cutting? 

Ben won't be able to watch you step by step but all the tutorials will be added to the CORE12 instagram page so you can take your time. 

What happens once I pay?

Ben will email you to welcome you and get some info, things like what you want to get from this course, Ben will send you all your info on where to get mannequin heads from using his discount code.

What Equipment do I need


What if I can't watch it live? 

No problem you can watch it in the CORE12 instagram page, the benefit of the watching live is you can ask Ben questions as he is working.

I’ve been searching for a proper precision cutting course online for years. When I found out Mr. Ben Brown was doing a live course on Zoom, I almost fainted lol! I didn’t even hesitate spending that much on a course with him. Having spent the last 12 weeks working with him in Core12.. I now would have paid double. Not only is Ben super entertaining with his hysterical personality, his talent for articulating the art of haircutting is stunning. He’s was attentive, and passionate about being helpful. I have gained confidence in my skill and knowledge as a hairstylist. I’m super appreciative of his time and kindness. Honestly, I would recommend Core12 to anyone who wants or needs to upgrade their craft!

Hi Ben, just want to say a huge thank you for allowing me to be part of Core 12 . Since covid I have thrown myself in to being the best colourist I can possibly be that’s where I excel as it’s where I was most confident. Cutting became my weak point or so I thought . That was until I started your classes and realised just how much I love cutting especially when you break it down and simplify it all. It has been a game changer for me and now I am no longer just a colourist . You have given me back my confidence. I would highly recommend anyone do this course whether it be a beginner, someone struggling to find their passion or just a refresher. Thanks again Ben ❤️

I have loved every minute of CORE12 with Ben! Having spent a 1-1 training day with Ben a few years ago I knew as soon as I saw the course that I would greatly benefit from taking part and I wasn’t wrong. Ben breaks each cut down and goes into great depth about why he does things so I felt like I really understood the process and the beauty of having all the videos on Instagram meant that I can rewatch as much as I need to. Even though the cuts seemed familiar, I have learned so much and really feel I’m able to refine my approach to cutting and I have grown in confidence with aspects that I’ve struggled with before, or have just improved my understanding and overcome fears especially when it comes to things like disconnection. I couldn’t recommend this course more, it’s a very worthwhile investment and Ben is such a great teacher, very knowledgable whilst staying real, kind and just wanting to help wherever he can.
