American Wave is a revolutionary salon service created by Nick Arrojo and his senior texture specialists. The System uses modern ionic waving lotions and editorial hair setting techniques to create a variety of custom-made, permanent textures for clients.  

In order to maintain the standards of this creative and intuitive, high-fashion service, to practice American Wave in your salon you must obtain Certification from ARROJO.

We offer “Single-User” Certification Seminars bi-monthly at our Advanced Academy in NYC, and intermittently at venues across the country. We also offer “In-Your-Salon” Certification for up to eight stylists. 

On a combination of models and mannequins, the One-Day Certification Class teaches –– through demonstration and hands-on work –– three key American Wave techniques.
