I just wanted to thank Vivienne for all the wonderful mentoring. I have been a hair designer for over 40 years and have always loved bettering my craft through education. I have done hands-on classes with Candy Shaw, Andrew Carruthers, John Sahag, etc. And no one has been as clear and concise as Vivienne and HairDesignerTV. Thank you again!

"First and foremost I want to say thank you for taking time to put together a life changing program for all of us. As a seasoned hairdresser with all the classes I've taken, and I am always hungry for being taught something new – I went into the program wanting something new, but you gave more than just an education in something new, I have been completely transformed. New and improved beyond my wildest dreams!
I look forward to the one-on-one with you! I am so excited for honing my brand and space to be the best beyond just Enumclaw (Washington)! Love you!"
~ Colette Francel
"Thank you so much for keeping in touch with me. I just love your personal touch and the way you explain the details. I've been enjoying a few of your pre-recorded videos and it's already making me aware of so much more behind the chair. One of the things you mentioned in our class was "the magic happens when you stop". That really helps me evaluate my work and check myself when I'm doing something that's not correct or could be better.
It is a freeing experience as I communicate with each client, creating a personalized style with the new found sense of excitement because I'm putting my insecurities aside and letting my love of hairdressing come forward. This is what I've been looking for.... to remind me of why I chose this profession.
I admire you so much and I'm really looking forward to improving my skills and confidence. Your demonstrations and your careful evaluation and patience with each student's abilities in my first virtual class really sealed in my mind how much I could benefit from you and your course. Looking forward to our next live class! Thank you so much!"

"The editorial course has extended my dress work skills beyond what I could ever imagine. It has given me the foundation needed to truly understand designing with intention. It has helped me to break down a hairstyle in a way that creates the pathway to a successful look vs. the frustration and fear I used to get when I would see an “updo” in my book.
The course gives you a plethora of options along with understanding the why? I am so grateful for all that I learned."
~ Rosemary Tedjeda
"Wow!!! Thank you so much for sharing these very inspirational videos ("Unlock Your Creativity" tutorial series). I’ve been having a pity party over my career lately. Lol. Of course I’m the only one at my party! 😂 These videos have definitely lifted my spirit and I am back in the game feeling like I can take on the world. Vivienne you are an amazing woman. I met you when I took your class in Las Vegas with Charles Azzi. I’ve been in aww ever since."

Comments: This truly is the Harvard of Hairdressing! I immediately felt at ease. I
could sense Vivienne’s dedication and passion for her collection, “A Ponytail Story,” just by the
tone of her voice. The concept was simple and very relatable by using the ponytail as the
foundation of learning theory and building skills. The session began by building a foundation
and then took me on a journey to a full blown professional photo shoot. The transformation of
all the different looks where creative and inspiring. It was an organized presentation with
beautiful images detailing her creative thought process. It helped being able to actually see and
compare the silhouettes in solidifying the theory, as well as being able to observe her work live.
I especially enjoyed watching all of the theory be put to use, the light touch of her hands,
learning the names of different types of backcombing, and seeing the various tools that are
used in holding the foundation of the ponytail. She ended the session by answering questions
and sharing her wisdom. Her closing remarks about the importance of walking away when
necessary, focusing on things you have control over, and learning from the best of the best
really resonated with me.
