Headsheets are nothing new in the industry. In fact, they are one of the oldest and most significant tools used. What is new in the world of Headsheets is how stylists, students, and educators are creating them and utilizing them. Say goodbye to the traditional one-dimensional sheet and say hello to a digital, multi-dimensional tool.
Imagine having the ability to take a picture, using your mobile device, of an amazing cut or color, drawing out your technique, writing down your color formula, listing out the products you’ve used to create the finished look, adding notes, and with a simple click create a multi-dimensional Headsheet. Oh, did I mention you have the ability to save, share or upload your work, and you will have access to it 24/7?
Mobile Headsheet Apps truly have revolutionized the way Headsheets are being utilized today in the classroom, student salon, and salons. Depending on the features and functionality that you’re looking for there are a variety of Headsheet Apps available for free, while others may require a nominal investment.
Think about the possibilities for utilizing these digital Headsheets within your classrooms or student salon. Of course, you can use them just as you would use traditional, printed Headsheets, but think outside the box. For instance, a student can find a picture of a cut or color that inspires them, then upload the picture, diagram the technique, formulate the color, list-out styling products that they would use to duplicate the look and they can then share their creation with you! Now, that’s what I call using digital resources to your advantage while increasing student engagement.
