Head of the Class Located in the Meatpacking District of New York City, the Goldwell KMS California Academy is set to open in April. Haute Spot New York's Goldwell KMS California Academy promises world-class education in the country's fashion capital. -FRANCESCA MOISIN E ver since Peter Minuit bought Manhattan from the Native Americans for fine cloth and pretty beads, New York has been a beauty epicenter. So it makes sense that nearly 400 years later, Goldwell USA is set to launch its newest education facility, Goldwell KMS California Academy, in the city's fashionable Meatpacking District. "From fabulous designers to swank restaurants to cobblestone streets, this hot spot is ideal for our 6,500-square-foot space," raves Sandra Humphries, Kao U.S. Vice President of Education. Set to open in April, the multistory building boasts a rooftop classroom with lovely patios and a stunningly iconic skyline view. Completely fresh curriculum partly takes its cue from the vibrant arts and culture scene, with courses like "Inspiration NYC" that include field trips to local boutiques and museums. Thus stimulated, students then channel their new insight into the creation of astonishingly original styles. Workshops are divided into one-, two- or three-day programs led by both Goldwell pros and global artists (as part of the International Series), who showcase their countries' latest groundbreaking trends. Best of all: Classes are brand neutral. "We're constructing a universal academy where all are accepted, no matter the color in your bowl or styling product in your hand," reveals Humphries. This welcome especially extends to stylists stuck in a rut. While for some the innate desire to do hair is all consuming, other talented technicians may have mastered the skills yet still occasionally struggle on their creative quest. To them, Humphries offers sound advice: Switch up your routine. "If you're a snipper, attend a creative color placement program," she muses. "If pigment is your passion, how about a razor-cutting seminar?" All artistry can be upped a notch, through the simple act of embracing a new challenge. 114 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | FEBRUARY 2014 Sandra Humphries, Kao U.S. Vice President of Education Need to Know Costs range from $75 for an evening class to $1,000 for an Artist Series of programs. Class sizes are 15 students max. "We keep them intimate for greater interaction," Humphries explains. Two total academies: One on the West Coast in Santa Monica, California, the newer on the East Coast in New York City. http://www.jatai.net http://www.jatai.net
