This event includes the following 4 classes:


Inspections, Inspectors & Fines Oh My!

Did you know that salon inspections are being performed throughout Wisconsin? Why do certain salons and licensees get selected for an inspection? What happens during an inspection? What if I get a citation? How much is the fine for different violations? Is there any way I can prepare for an inspection? These questions and many more will be answered during this class. Humorous video clips are infused into the material to lighten the mood, and create a fun, entertaining format.

Wisconsin Laws & Rules Update

There have been major changes to the Wisconsin Cosmetology Codebook during the last few years. We will share many of these changes with you and discuss how they affect practitioners, managers, owners, and establishments. We will also give you a heads up on some really interesting changes to the laws and rules that are currently being considered, and what to expect if they are put in to place. Additional important aspects of the code will also be reviewed, featuring common areas of confusion that we have seen throughout the state during our last tour. The class will wrap up with the extremely popular “Question and Answer Session with a Wisconsin Codebook Expert”.

Cosmetology Kaleidoscope

You asked for it, so we created it! This class covers a variety of topics that we have received numerous requests for. Practical information that you can easily apply to the salon environment will be presented, including:

  • What do clients really think about sanitation in the salon? The HairDirections Lab Experiment captured candid client answers to this question through interviews, group talk-show-style sessions and surveys. Very interesting.
  • The implications of allowing a Wild Child to roam free in the salon can be grave. They can destroy property, get hurt, and ruin the tranquil environment that you have worked so hard to create. This segment provides simple methods to help manage a Wild Child without offending the parents.
  • Most of us will encounter head lice at some point in our career. We will give licensees tools to help identify and properly respond to the presence of head lice, including adhering to the law and what to do with the items and surrounding area that may have been exposed.
  • Cosmetology professionals aren’t used to sitting for long periods of time, and are always asking us for activities that allow them to move around. This segment will address common physical problems many people in our industry face through simple stretching exercises.

The HairDirections Game Show!!!

What is the most fun way to fulfill your CE requirements? Attending a Game Show!!! The HairDirections Game Show is a fun class where everyone gets to play along and compete for fabulous prizes. You will keep track of your own score as we go through a series of humorous, colorful, and informative questions. All new material, including visual questions!
