HairDirections Lab Experiment: the dish on what clients are really thinking

Continuing education hours: 1

Wouldn’t it be great to know what your clients are REALLY thinking?  Why they started coming to the salon, or why they left?  What they would happily pay more for?  What they wish their service provider knew but won’t tell them?  The HairDirections Lab Experiment captured candid client answers to these questions and much more through interviews, group talk-show-style sessions, and surveys.  Even our industry veterans were surprised to learn the truth. This class gives us valuable insight from a client perspective that we can use in our daily salon and spa life. The HairDirections Lab Experiment includes candid video footage of clients giving us the dish on what they really think, along with analysis and breakdowns of the results.

Salon 911: how to stay cool when things get hot 

Continuing education hours: 1

Salon 911 tackles topics that are critically important, yet generally ignored in the cosmetology industry. Our careers put us at an elevated risk for being exposed to a variety of hot scenarios. This class provides useful information for real situations that we may encounter in the salon addressing personal safety, emergencies, and fire safety.  Short interviews with experts, including a Crime Prevention Officer, Nurses, and a Deputy Fire Chief will be presented along with “what would you do scenarios”, and real world examples.  Practical advice will be provided to help avoid a hot situation when possible, or stay cool if one occurs.
