FREAKS AND GEEKS COLOR CERTIFICATION

$795.00

This non product specific course is the only of its kind, recognized as a college level course in 8 states.

Has hair color changed dramatically over the last 20 years? From Cellophanes to Glazing, Pre-Softening to Double N’s, Blue Oil to Olaplex.  The issues in hair color that plagued us then, still plague us today; coverage, fading, damage, how to make it shinier and healthier, and how to achieve the ultimate blonde. On top of these difficulties we face, there are endless products and categories in our marketing, both in print and online…hair color lines, product lines, current trends, brands, gimmicks, tricks, tips, techniques and new technology.  It can be daunting and we buy our way through it all. If all the “miracle products” out there work, then why are we still having the same hurdles year after year? Plus, all of these come with a big ticket price but we don’t always see a return on our investment.  They are either short lived trends or too complicated and/or too expensive to keep up with.  The best colorists out there are extremely educated and wonderfully creative; a Geek and a Freak.  Knowledge: the only key to achieve success.

This 4 Day Program will provide you with the most current education and the latest technology that will turn you into the “Sheldon” of your industry. (A Little Big Bang Theory reference there…if you don’t watch the show give it a try. It’s hilarious and smart just like us). You will learn techniques that will inspire you to be your own creative genius and inspiration.

Our education is generic to any and all brands, and the most sought after in the country…and have I mentioned that Satisfaction is guaranteed or your money is refunded!
