crown X the Left Brain Group

The team at crown + extended hair fam enjoyed a cutting collective hosted by Dante Pronio. A Philly native residing in NYC, Dante joined the Left Brain Group in order to share his passion for detail. He's worked with hair legends Howard McLaren of R+Co and Bumble+bumble, the V76 men's grooming team, and Christiaan to name a few.

At crown, we had the idea to save all the profits from our "merch" sales in order to supplement our team's education. Every time you pick up a shirt, hat, enamel pin, koozie- You're directly supporting the learning that benefits your own hair! Stay up-to-date with what we create, as most items are limited runs.

Stylists new + seasoned all took something away from this class. Though laid-back + cool, Dante's brain is always mapping out the next step of each cut. Learning some of his sectioning techniques as well as variations on tool use made a huge difference. We concentrated on letting the cut speak for itself, styling with our hands + very minimal product. Bona Fide Texture Spray proved again to be a favorite, but this time as a cutting lotion.

...always looking forward to hosting our next educational event. Thank you from all of us at crown, for supporting us!
