about Hairdressing Made Easy

"Travis is a genius with cutting hair. Not only is the way he cuts hair effortless and modern, he also makes it fun and easy with no judgement. I would recommend anyone to try it. I’ve been doing hair for 14 years, and man, did it help me. Thanks again Travis, you’re the man. Love ya buddy ”

Julius Cvesar @juliuscaesar @stmntgrooming

“ As a barber of 20 years, i’ve grown in the hair industry and have been blessed to work in a lot of different aspects of the business. From owning my own barbershop, to traveling all around the world educating, and even developing a hair product line. All of this wouldn’t be possible if I didn't make it a pivotal factor to continue pursuing more education. Travis Parker Academy and the Cutting Edge membership has really been enjoyable to learn from, as its simple yet effective, especially coming from the fact that i’m a barber. It not only gave me justification on techniques i already know, but most importantly, i am able to learn women’s focused cutting techniques and apply it to men’s haircutting. Hair is hair. It’s just about being open to step outside the box, learn new things, and apply it accordingly!”

Jamie Dana @jamiedanahairstylist

"I’ve never felt comfortable in hair cutting, I always felt very vulnerable, and I definitely had a lot of insecurities with hair cutting all together. I walked away feeling extremely comfortable with haircutting; and I would dare say it, that I would actually consider myself a actual hair cutter.”

Andrew Carruthers @andrew.carruthers

"The academy hits all the marks for my high expectations of education. The content is thoughtful and approachable, the environment is inspiring, and the educators are always focused on the needs of their students.”

Judith Viola @judeviola

“I am so grateful for my time at the Travis Parker Academy, which has felt more like a retreat than just advanced education. His space is beautiful and inspiring, and unlike any other environment I have learned in. By providing a simple approach to shapes that we all know and love, I find myself revisiting pieces of the program daily. Beyond refreshing technique, I believe hairstylists will walk away from TPA with a renewed perspective on their time behind the chair.”

Kendall Schmidt @kendalljshair

Certified in CC1|CC2 |CC3

“By completing courses CC1, CC2, and CC3, I was able to really understand the fundamentals of haircutting as well as advance all of those techniques that I learned at the beginning. It gave me an arsenal of tools to use behind the chair.”

Tori Pelfree @torrilee_colorist

Certified in CC1|CC2 |CC3

“Before I came in on day one I felt so anxious and nervous because I didn’t know the terminology of haircutting and was super uncomfortable with a lot of haircutting techniques. I was excited but I guess just overall a bit scared. Now on day 6 I’m so happy I finished the course because I feel so much more comfortable in myself as an artist and behind the chair. I feel like I have all the tools and am so excited to be getting my certification.”

China Wilson @chinaknight

“The Travis Parker Academy experience is unlike anything I was able to find within our industry. It’s a program that provides a comprehensive roadmap for executing the full continuum of looks, from classic to current and trendy. As you work your way through the courses, the skill sets layer on top of each other, building your confidence to provide your guests with whatever look they’re requesting. Most importantly you walk away with a new friend in Travis, as well as a mentor.”

Eileen Parra Feeney @styleen

“I feel like I’ve learned so much more in the two day classes than I’ve learned in a long time. I’ve been doing hair for almost 19 years and yesterday was the day that I really felt like I finally ‘got it.’”

Tim Hauk @airtohair

"What attending Travis Parker academy thought me: It’s ok to be yourself. Honestly ,Travis inspires before he even starts to teach. Not only in the hair industry but in life itself. I attended Cutting Course 1 and came back to Nashville ready to take on the city with my new found skills and confidence. Travis has the ability to reach out and touch people. He was made to share his approachable teaching skills.
