Our Signature Professional Education
The Cut It Kinky Alumni Mastermind is the the first hybrid digital/live education + mentoring membership for tightly curly hair care practitioners.
It charts new territory in our industry where we are finally able to center what we have coined “Black Girl Curls” as conceived by the owners of said curls. Rich with the culture, history, and lived experience of our target market, we bypass the forced emphasis on acceptability politics in hair, as shown by the preference for looser and lighter curls in product marketing and education.
The Alumni Mastermind is a monthly membership that will completely change the way you approach business + curls behind the chair.
What's Inside The Mastermind?
The Content of The Cut It Kinky Alumni Mastermind is found in three pillars. Create, Curate, and Cultivate. Each month we focus on one of our nine framework topics to deep dive into what you as the professional need to grow and thrive in your business.

Cut Like An Artist
Tight curls grow up and out. Cutting them is sculpture (3D) vs. painting (D).
Up to now cutting has been taught like painting. We break the mold to teach you tight curl sculpture as you develop your innate vision to trust what you see and just cut it.
"Ladies thank you so much for putting together this training. I have been searching high and low for education on natural/kinky/super curly hair and you nailed it! Very informative, professional, and to the point.
I am especially thrilled that this was a recorded training so I can go back and re-watch the lessons at my leisure. Sometimes when you go to class it’s great in the moment then half of the information leaks out before making it home! Brilliant.”
