Classrooms and Workshops

Our favorite part of the show is spending time with stylists learning new techniques, trends and money-making looks to inspire them when they return back to their salons. With more than 440 professional education classes offered at Premiere Orlando, it truly is an education destination. The classrooms and workshops this year are packed with highlights: here are some we're really looking forward to:

: From cut, color, texture, nails, makeup and everything in between, Premiere Orlando is offering a wide range of workshops to make sure you can get the education you're seeking.

  This year will feature 33 classroom presentations on salon business and personal development with pertinent information for salon owner, managers and stylists. Topics covered include building clientele, social media marketing, increasing retail revenue, putting technology to work in your business and more.

With more than 20 classes and workshops focused on extensions, there is not excuse not to amp up your knowledge of extensions to boost your profits and diversify your clientele.

: In the last few years, a significant gap has appeared in the professional beauty industry: clients with textured hair turned away from the salon and began visiting blogs and YouTube channels for answers on maintaining their curls. Fortunately, curl experts and educators are now entering the scene, ready to teach stylists how to offer texture services.

The show is packed with continuing education for nail artists, with classes taught by experts from some of your favorite brands such as CND, Essie, ORLY, Morgan Taylor and Zoya. Check out this story for details on how to create the latest trends and techniques your clients care about.

The men's market continues to receive a lot of attention from the cosmetology community, and many barbers make their way to Orlando specifically for barber classes and competitions. Not including the hands-on workshops, there are a whopping 59 barbering classes at the show this year, so fitting a few into your schedule should be no problem.
