The French have a saying….


“The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without the work.”

For Beauty professionals that work involves education. Continuing education is the single most important factor in a continuing career in the Salon Industry. Inspiration is not enough!!! We need thoughtful new strategies to drive growth, both in technical and marketing skills. Education is everything in the ever changing Beauty Culture industry.

For years I have thanked by first boss for introducing me to the hair show world. He instructed me to find one really great idea at the show that I could work until it became second nature. Listening and acting upon his words was and still is part of my success formula! Thank You, Mr. Charles!
