Caliven Testamodelle®

Our head mannequins are educational tools used primarily for the training and practice of hairdressers and hairstylists. Their main functions include:


Training and learning:

Studio heads are essential in hairdressing schools and training courses. Students use these heads to learn and perfect techniques for cutting, coloring, styling and other procedures without the risk of damaging a customer's hair


Practice and refinement:

Even experienced hairdressers can use the head mannequins to practice and refine new techniques or styles before applying them on clients. This allows them to train their creativity, experimenting and innovating in a risk-free environment.


Demonstrations and workshops:

During seminars, workshops, or trade shows, the mannequin heads can be used to demonstrate new techniques or products. They are particularly useful and practical in these settings because they allow the end result to be clearly seen.


Examinations and competitions:

Mannequin heads are used to assess a hairdresser's skills, such as during examinations or certification tests, or during competitions.


Product development:

Hair companies can use the mannequins heads to test the efficacy and safety of their products before launching them on the market.


Over the years, we have had the honor of establishing a large number of successful collaborations with prestigious hair brands, hairdressing schools and industry professionals.
