Lorraine Gerrity, Chair of Cosmetology and Barber Department for Daytona State College, wanted to participate in the Men’s Method program as soon as she heard about it. As an advocate for her students and staff, she believes her students need to be able to execute men’s cuts to be successful in the industry—Wahl Men’s Method delivers just that.
“Wahl was the first to approach our school to better educate our teachers, who in turn can better teach our students,” says Gerrity. “With the new Wahl Men’s Method of haircutting, students will have a greater knowledge of what to expect when they graduate and enter the work force.”
Daytona State teachers recently received the first chance to train with the program to then teach their students. The launch presented the opportunity for teachers to be back in the students’ seats as they learned new techniques.
“To see all the instructors really involved, wanting to learn, and agree with what the program has to offer was outstanding,” says Tracey Nugent, Education Specialist, Wahl Men’s Method. “The training was executed at the highest level where the instructors were reminded of what the student goes through both mentally and physically when learning. This created an awareness that escalated the instructor’s enthusiasm which was inspiring to watch.” With a fresh and consistent curriculum, Daytona State teachers were excited to learn what Men’s Method has to offer and are now ready to launch the program at their campuses.
“We had thirteen teachers in the Wahl Men’s Method 2-day training. Teachers attended from both our Cosmetology and Barbering programs. They all feel comfortable introducing men’s clipper cutting to our students enrolled in the fall,” says Gerrity. Men’s grooming is such an integral component in the beauty and barber industry. Not only is it a prominent trend, it’s also essential to learn in schools. The Men’s Method is a program that can enhance the basics in barbering and cosmetology curriculums.
