THE BUZZ: John and Lotte Davis, CEOs and founders of AG Hair Cosmetics, were there to welcome the enthused group. John explained to the audience how attending advanced educational events will only help salon businesses and develop all as entrepreneurs. âThe dictionary definition of an entrepreneur is âa person who organizes and manages an enterprise usually with considerable initiative and risk,ââ he said. âIf you add âwith creativity, style and flairâ to the definition, you describe most successful salon owners and hair stylists. Everyday hair stylists and salon owners rely both on their interpersonal skills and their artistic skills to create beauty and earn a living. They, more than most, absolutely define entrepreneurship.â
THE LAST WORD: âItâs so exciting to see so many heavily textured looks,â said a salon owner from Paramus, New Jersey. âThereâs something here for every client. This will be fun to try out in the salon.â
