Learning has been a cornerstone of Hair Cuttery's success behind the chair for 43 years. The company believes education is a solid path for its salon professionals to grow their talent, career and income. “As a learning organization, our passion for education is really a passion for growing our people,” says CEO, Founder and Stylist, Dennis Ratner

No one knows this better than Ali Hoffberg and her team, who see the results first-hand in the classroom. As an Artistic Leader, Hoffberg covers a lot of territory sharing hands-on techniques and inspiration with nearly 12,000 salon professionals along the East Coast and in the Midwest. It translates to a lot of days on the road but Ali loves the payoff.

“I read a quote somewhere that said, ‘A teacher's goal is to help you realize yours.’ For me, that says it perfectly. I love seeing a stylist get the hang of a new technique or trend, or see a really fabulous result from a product we're demonstrating! It’s even better when they share later what a difference it’s made for their career behind the chair. They inspire me.”

One of the greatest strengths of Hair Cuttery’s education program comes from its professional partnership with Redken, still going strong after 20 years based on a shared philosophy to “Learn, Earn and Live Better.” Salon professionals attend classes backed by Redken's powerhouse of training and the latest product science. It also means opportunities to train hands-on at the Redken Exchange on 5th Avenue in NYC, and learn the latest trends at the renowned Redken Symposium in Las Vegas.

Incredibly, all of this education is offered at no cost to Hair Cuttery’s salon professionals. Joanne Lindenmuth, Vice President of Talent Management says, “We know it’s an investment in our people that pays off a hundred times over. Education gives our people the confidence, the tools and the knowledge to take their careers wherever they want to go.”

Service Spotlight: Aveda's Tulasara Dual Exfoliation Peel at Spa Bleu, West Dundee, Illinois

Alison Alhamed | January 20, 2017

Aveda’s New Dual Exfoliation Treatment isn’t the run-of-the-mill facial. And while it’s relaxing, it’s designed and marketed as more of a treatment. I’ll admit that anything that comes from nature, sans serious chemicals, I’m a bit of a skeptic of its performance. But after experiencing the Dual Exfoliation Treatment facial for myself, I’m a believer.
