After attending Amy's updo class, I feel much more confident in my salon's updo ability. Wedding season is quickly approaching and I feel that my staff is equipped with the knowledge to make every bride beautiful on their wedding day. 

Suzannah Hobley 
Owner, Style Salon 
Indianapolis, IN March 2010 - I now know what to do and where to begin. She's correct with her logo that she takes the guessing out of updoing. I am now confident and can't wait to get started. I highly recommend this course for every hairstylist. 

March, 2011 - This was my second time taking this course and I learned just as much, if not more than I did the first time around. I love this class and look forward to the advanced course.

Amy Colvin’s Foolproof Updoing was the best styling class I have ever taken. Since taking her class I have increased my updos' business by leaps and bounds. The Foolproof method enables me to create a sophisticated look from a simple picture.  Amy has a method that anyone can learn and use in their business. I highly recommend that any stylist wanting to grow in the updos' business take Amy’s class.

This class was great in how it was a reinforcer and brings excitement to doing special event hair, with so many ways to do them!

I recently attended one of Amy Colvin's Foolproof Updoing Seminars and it was awesome. I would seriously recommend this class to beginners as well as seasoned stylists. One of the most detailed classed I have attended in my 28 years in the profession. As an Instructor myself, I was very impressed with Amy and her team. Thanks Amy for the eye opening experience.

I was very uncomfortable with up styling! For 32 years I ran from them and if one was accidently booked on my line, I freaked. I believe with practice, this fear may disappear.

I loved everything about this class, and learning in a fun casual atmosphere. I would recommend this class to anyone no matter how long they've been in this industry. There's ALWAYS something new in the tricks of the trade.

This course is great! From start to finish, it flowed very nicely. I did an updo yesterday by just going for it and now I could really see what I need to do when clients bring in photos. Very much a confidence and skill booster!

Even though I feel as though I am a natural updoer, Foolproof Updoing has helped me to understand updos in a more mechanical way. I learned how to teach my team about updos and explain them! Amy stayed on track and used the time effectively. Thanks Amy and Roseann!

Wow! Where do I start?! Lifechanging, most worthwhile uphair class EVER and I take a lot of hands on education. It was a challenge to manage my personal life to attend this hands on class, but this class is now my top rated essential course for up hair!

Jeannie Jachman

Before taking Foolproof Uppdoing I lacked confidence while doing most upstyles. Now I can break down an updo before I even begin, giving me a place to start and the confidence my clients need! This course was easy to follow and easy to retain.

  Amy was great! I learned a lot. I would love to have a second time to train with her. She's a great teacher!

The hands on work; like an updo bootcamp; very intense and immersive; I feel like I now know the foundational building blocks to tackle any updo challenge. Updo's will no longer be a trial and error excercise.

  I really enjoyed this class and I am looking forward to trying the techniques I learned.
