IBS Speaker Bio | David Bangham


Designed by David Bangham, the AXIS.POINT hair cutting method is a liberating concept that embraces the relationship between mind, body and matter. Grounded with an understanding of skull contours and fabric distribution, seams connect geometric panels around the head, creating fluidity and balance within the shape.


Bring your scissors, razors, clips, combs, dryer and smoothing iron!  Mannequin and tripod are included unless noted otherwise.
