A Word from the Founder

“When you have a deeper understanding of something it is your responsibility to share and help someone else understand – that is my calling” – Martin Truong 

Hire for passion, train for skill. This has always been the Eikonic way.

Dear future beauty professional,

congratulations on considering to pursue a career in the cosmetology industry! Beauty is a rewarding, vibrant, creative and compassionate playground that allows you to make a difference in the world we live in.

When you make someone look and feel great – it’s instant gratification.

After obtaining my cosmetology license, I was inspired by the art of cutting and barbering and quickly realized that there were no official avenues to continue my education.

In the years to follow, my passion for the craft and unwavering desire to innovate has led me to develop the Eikonic Cutting Systems and the Eikonic Barbering System – a method of men’s haircutting that combines traditional techniques with the advances of modern technology.

At the core of the Eikonic Cutting System,  is the respect for balance, body positioning, foundation and structure – universal elements and techniques any aspiring barber-stylist would need in their repertoire for infinite creativity. My proprietary techniques for cutting have borrowed it’s roots from my other passion of the visual arts. Ideologies such as cross hatching, pointillism, perspective and geometry takes centre stage resulting in precise, efficient techniques and trendsetting styles for real people.

Early in my career, I have been fortunate to have wonderful mentors who led me down the right path of education. Today I am ready to give back and share my secret to success and help passionate people like you start a successful lifelong career in beauty. My team of talented educators and I look forward to personally meeting you and helping you on your journey as a future professional.

Together, let us inspire greatness.
