For stylists looking to elevate their career to the next level, becoming a brand ambassador is key. By using social platforms to create curated content for brands, stylists are able to take advantage of opportunities beyond their hometown and salon; the days of needing to be in a major city to be successful are a thing of the past.
Colortrak's team of ambassadors recently gathered for the brand's annual Colortrak Retreat in Miami, Florida. The three-day event was an opportunity for Colortrak’s team to continue building relationships with its ambassadors and to provide an opportunity for everyone to get to know each other in person rather than just on social media. Each ambassador filmed educational tutorials and participated in a photoshoot. To catch a peak into the retreat's actitivies, check out our Instagram coverage here.
