She might not be a Kardashian, West or Jenner, but by this point, hairstylist Jen Atkin is essentially a part of the famous family. (So much so, she even has her own avatar in Kim’s iPhone game!) So, being one of the many resident Kardashian fans here at PEOPLE, when I heard Atkin’s beauty site Mane Addicts was hosting a hair seminar — and that Atkin, along with Karlie Kloss’s mane man, Harry Josh, were teaching it — I wasted no time volunteering my hair as tribute.
Also, I won’t lie, I had a lot of questions. Every day, it seems as if there’s a new celebrity, stylist or makeup artist talking about a “masterclass” fans can attend. I needed to know: Who exactly is going to these classes? Are they really worth the $450 to $1,100 to attend? And can normal people actually achieve magazine-cover-status waves at home? Here are the answers to all that, and so much more.
