The Mizani Texpert Academy: Learn Professional Texture Education

Filling the gap in texture education, MIZANI just announced the launch of the Mizani Texpert Academy. This new digital platform is a one-stop professional education destination for stylists to learn the building blocks, services and Texture EQ needed to become an expert in all things textured hair. Here’s what you need to know!


What To Expect From The Academy

The need for texture education has become critical, knowing 65 percent of consumers have textured hair. That’s why The Mizani Texpert Academy’s mission is to create a comprehensive and accessible digital texture curriculum and classes that ensures salons and professionals are equipped to take on any texture that walks through their doors.


The Texpert Academy will allow new salons to get involved with texture and those who are already known for texture to amplify their education amongst their stylists. The Academy offers a well-rounded menu of courses, that are grounded in the fundamentals of textured hair, services offered in the salon, and how to address texture in the editorial landscape.


The Academy is comprised of MIZANI’s leading Texpert Squad, a group Mizani educators who are texture trailblazers in their respective course offerings. This lineup of artists include:


  • Tippi Shorter (@tippishorter)
  • Jamal Edmonds (@lamajbackwards)
  • Evie Johnson (@contactevie)
  • Ashley Brown (@ash_hairbarbie)
  • Jada Jenkins (@jadajenkinsco)
  • Al Campbell (@al_alexander)
  • Kauilani Goodwyn (@kauigoodwyn)
  • Tiffany Green (@tagartistrysalon)


“I am proud of this Academy and the level of texture curriculum this brings to the artist community, we have seen this gap in high level texture education and listened to our salons and stylists as they voiced the need for it,” shares Mizani’s Head of Education Kate Oeschsle. “I am thrilled to finally bring it to them in such an easy, economic and digital first manner.”


Tippi Shorter, Mizani Global Artistic Director notes, “This launch is necessary in the professional learning space. Mizani has always been the leader in teaching stylists what the schools and other curriculums tend to leave out. I’m proud to be part of the foundational education for texture”.


Texture Academy Classes To Look Out For

Some first-to-market class offerings in the Academy include:


  • Texture 411: Fundamentals – A comprehensive introduction course on texture basics, dos and don’ts of textured hair for Texture Types 8 to 1.


  • The Language of Texture – A course that dives into the importance of language and specific usage when dealing with guests in your chair.


  • The Mizani Aircut – This first-to-market wave, curl and coil cutting class that blends together the science of texture with innovate techniques that allow you to create sustainable cuts that can be recreated.


  • Color & Texture In Motion – A course that outlines firsthand how textured hair and color work together in tandem, plus gain proper color care knowledge.


This is just the beginning. More classes and offerings will be launching this year and as Mizani looks into 2021, they plan on programming both digital and live texture education for greater reach. A standout certification for classes will be sent to the individual stylists and salons after each course has been completed.
