DIY holiday hair with individual styling classes

Private hairstyling lessons at Yoshi Hair Studio
Holiday parties are on the horizon. Rather than sitting in the salon chair a couple times a week in order to get a blowout or style, why not learn how to do it yourself? Of course, that's always easier said than done, and your arms get tired trying to mimic the blow-dryer-and-round-brush technique that your hairstylist seems to do with ease. But one-on-one tutorials from a seasoned stylist might just do the trick and save some time and cash in the long run.

Beverly Hills-based hairstylist Yoshi Hagiwara is starting private styling lessons this month. The 25-year hairstyling veteran and former head stylist at Frederic Fekkai now has his own salon where he coifs the heads of socialites and celebs.

During his 60-minute private styling sessions, clients have the opportunity to sit with Hagiwara and learn how to re-create the latest trends on their own hair, as well as address any personal maintenance or styling issues.

The class costs $200 and includes a restorative conditioning treatment and in-depth step-by-step instructions of several styles that work with your hair type. You'll also leave the session with photos of each look learned.

Does a private hairstyling session seem too intimidating or maybe just something you'd like to share with friends? Hagiwara will also teach several people at a time for a group rate -– perfect for a bachelorette party or starting the holiday social swirl with your gal pals at the salon.

Call Yoshi Hair Studio to book an appointment, 310-285-9910.
