    Hi Taka. My name is Greg May.I have a salon in Toronto, Canada called GREG MAY HAIR ARCHITECTS. I have been doing hair for around 16 years. I originally trained at Vidal Sassoon here in Toronto. I have worked with several product companies including Aveda, Sebastian and quite extensively with Paul Mitchell. While doing platform work for Paul Mitchell, I met a gentleman by the name of Takashi Kitamura. I noticed we shared many of the same cutting techniques such as no thumb cutting and stroke cutting. I was surfing the web in search of new ideas and techniques and I stumbled upon your site as well as Hiroshi Salon, and Mogi. Everything I see about you guys makes a lot of sense to me and would love to know more in regards of sharing knowledge. Do you offer courses? I was reading your bio, and, even though there are differences between us there are many similarities as well ie. how we grew up etc. I have a question also in regards to the scissors you said you liked.The Joewells. Do you find they are very good for stroke cutting technique?How about slicing and slide cutting? I have a pair of 5 inch NICS. I find them too small for some of the freestyle techniques I do and am thinking of getting a pair of black cobalt 5.5 inch Joewells. either that or Matsuzaki. Not sure. But since you use the Joewells, and I believe we have similar cutting styles; I would love any feedback you could provide. I would also like some information on classes,not just for me, but also perhaps some of my junior stylists. I really enjoy reading your site,and you can tell Miki that I thoroughly enjoyed her youtube stroke cutting techniques. You can check out my web page(however it is old and needs to be updated.) gregmayhair.com Thanks for the great site. Talk to you soon. Greg.
