Continuing Education with Erica Carr

Erica Carr brings a whole new light to education through her ambience and masterful lessons. While there are plenty of resources to teach hair to striving hair stylists, Erica Carr offers a unique opportunity for already developed makeup artists to broaden their talents by adding hair to their portfolio. For 3 days, goldplaited’s River North location hosted an assortment of talented makeup artists from all over the country as Erica Carr, Jon Lieckfelt, and Linh Nguyen revealed their best practices and advice.

Erica Carr covered the basics of posture, parts, positions, and angles. Jon Lieckfelt demonstrated the art of creating an identity as an artist; his being wild and stunning accessories created and designed by the extraordinaire himself. Linh Nguyen shared his runway, editorial, and celebrity experiences and enlightened us on the power of wigs. His out of the box creativity has crafted him as a one of a kind artist all over the nation.

goldplaited contributed to the experience by providing a versatile space to continue education. Our custom built River North location allowed for a variety of presentations each day. In the morning, our custom built space was used as a classroom with chairs pointing towards a focal point. In the afternoon, the floor was cleared to provide room for hands-on exercises. Take a look at the photos below to see different layouts of the space and what each master taught each day.
