My pick is always advanced education. Can you imagine visiting a doctor who isn’t getting the latest information and learning about the newest procedures and tools? Every salon professional should attend or participate in at least 12 advanced education events each year.
This includes shows, workshops, distributor events and manufacturer programs.
One of the best is our own Artist Session. MODERN founded this two-day event to teach all professional stylists how to do a photo shoot and how to make that “session” profitable for you and your salon. You walk away from the program with fantastic model shots that you created! You will also learn about public relations, on-set styling tips, putting together a portfolio, and how to contact magazine editors and agencies.
MODERN has held two sessions and has showcased some of the finished looks (Attendee Rose Renda had the cover of our May issue).
MODERN’s next Artist Session is July 27-28 in Los Angeles, and then back to New York September 21-22. For more details, contact Joyce Alverio at 800-621-2845 or go to modernsalon.com/artistsession.
