14 Breakouts Mean Up Close and Personal Learning. It’s fun to feel the energy from mainstage presentations, but smaller breakouts are where the real learning happens—the kind you can take back to the salon. This year Eufora is going all out with 14 breakout sessions—nine technical sessions and five business sessions. Tech breakouts include sessions on dry cutting, precision cutting, razor cutting, balayage and editorial styling. Intriguing business sessions will cover how to understand your customers’ minds and how to accelerate salon profits. (See the entire agenda here)

Because its February and San Diego. There seriously is no place more beautiful in the month of February than this city by the sea in Southern California. If you’re traveling from a colder, wintery place, stash your coat and boots and enjoy a few glorious days of sunshine and warmth. It will be exactly the psychic and physical break you need. Treat yourself!

And Finally, You Will Be Touched by Something That Makes You Greater Than When You Arrived. That’s the mission and promise of the caring folks at Eufora, a sentiment forged by the late Eufora Founder Don Bewley and one that has remained the Eufora philosophical foundation from day one. You’ll feel that commitment the moment you arrive, and it will stay with you. Promise.
