Arrojo Cosmetology offers a full curriculum for aspiring stylists in New York. Arrojo Academy has classes for professionals each weekend. “Again, we look and see who is best suited to teach certain classes. Some people excel at different things and I like to try and spread the wealth.”
When Arrojo goes on the road for Arrojo products or partner Goldwell, he takes a full team. “I always take more people than I need, a well-rounded group including makeup and fashion styling,” says Arrojo. “When we do education for our product company, the educators are selected based on their technical skill and their performance in the salon. I have apprentices at stage at expo next to a veteran that has been doing hair for 25 years. We can fast-track their capabilities if they step up to the plate. My goal is to develop every single hairdresser that works for me.”
Arrojo Ambassador Salons, those salons that carry the Arrojo line, get involved in Arrojo team-building by sending their salon ambassadors to participate in Style Council, a beauty think-tank of master stylists who brainstorm new collections and concepts for ARROJO.
Coming up next is Arrojo Underground, a free, open-entry symposium. “We invite people into our world to see what our hairdressers are plotting for 2014.”
