The Sola Sessions: Charlotte Recap - Sola Salon Studios

Danielle Keasling, Matrix

On Monday, November 14, 2016, more than 150 salon professionals from 11 states gathered at the Hilton Center City for the Sola Sessions.

Throughout the day, education on the main stage featured customer service tips on how to better understand your guests and thrive as an independent business owner to holiday marketing ideas to color application techniques to knowing your numbers, cutting, styling and more. Emcee Kim Bennett Horvath, Sola’s first ever stylist and Culture Ambassador kicked off the event by inspiring stylists to think about the future of the industry. She shared stories from her experiences as a 12-year Sola veteran, and congratulated the audience for taking the leap with Sola. She reminded the audience that sometimes, when you jump, the going gets tough, but you’ll never thrive without making that jump in the first place.

The Charlotte Sola Sessions featured top educators from various aspects of the professional beauty industry, including Terri Cowan (Professional Salon Concepts), Nick Berardi (Wella), Jennie Wolff (Sola Salon Studios VP Marketing & Education), Danielle Keasling (Matrix), Rob Cass (Salon Prophets / Wella), and Jason Reyes and Donna Mizell (Paul Mitchell). Additionally, Hattori Hanzo Shears, Hydropeptide, KLASS Beauty hosted additional learning opportunities at their vendor tables, and presented short segments on the main stage equipped with awesome giveaways!

The next Sola Session will be in Dallas, TX on Monday, February 13, 2017. Additional 2017 Sola Sessions dates to be announced.
