Rated 5 out of 5 by from The whole course was a refresher on the sanitation and the color wheel. The color wheel was a great tool, to refresh your self on the correction of color and hair porosity ect. This website has done a wonderful job, on keeping it simple, but refreshing you on the top 10 questions we all forget about on color.
