Professional trainings
at Tribus Urbaines: because curly hair deserves special care!

Every year, Tribus Urbaines holds a one month hairdressing training dedicated exclusively to textured hair, i.e. wavy, curly frizzy, and kinky.

The training is given by a talented and experienced hairstylist, Nancy Falaise, from Montreal. It consists of four modules delivered over 1 month, in french, at the Tribus Urbaines salon in Geneva, Switzerland.

Participants are free to participate in either the entire block of four modules or in a selection of individual modules. Courses are limited to no more than five participants and priority is given to certified professional hairstylists.

The next training session will take place in September 2020. The price is  3’500 CHF for the entire block or 1’000 CHF per module.

The trainer

Sabrina has over 10 years’ professional experience in hairdressing. She is passionate about textured hair.

The Tribus Urbaines Training Manager has developed expertise in all types of textured hair through training (notably with Canadian Nancy Falaise), working with the textures of the many curly, frizzy and Afro customers she styles at Tribus Urbaines, and testing all the information gleaned from the web on different textures.

The experience of the curly heads who parade at Tribus Urbaines, her own, that of her colleagues, her expertise and her training prompted her to train as an adult educator to better pass on the knowledge and techniques she had acquired.

Her desire to spread knowledge and professionalism in textured hair care led her to create and develop a training section within Tribus Urbaines.

Today, Sabrina is happy and proud to pass on the knowledge and techniques developed by Tribus Urbaines to all hairdressing professionals.
