Technology in the Salon Industry with Tev Finger

Anne Moratto | July 7, 2014 | 11:55 AM

WE ASKED INDUSTRY LEADERS TO TALK ABOUT WHAT TECHNOLOGICAL AND INDUSTRY TRENDS THEY SEE ON THE HORIZON AND HOW THEY THINK THESE CHANGES AND INNOVATIONS WILL SHAPE OUR WAY OF DOING BUSINESS IN THE FUTURE

Technology in the Salon Industry with Tev Finger

“Without question, the technology that I see on the horizon that will be a game changer is OCULUS RIFT. Haven’t heard of it? You should definitely get familiar with it. It was designed for the gaming industry, but the idea of a fully immersive visual experience for training on the cutting and styling of hair will be revolutionary in salon education. Right now, most on-demand education is based off of flat printed materials, YouTube videos and diagrams. This will bring the hairstylist a whole new way of learning that is more visual and, therefore, better. Unfortunately, the money is in gaming right now, so this is where it will start, but I can foresee a world about two years from now where an element of Oribe, R+Co and V76 education happens online with the stylist feeling as though they’re at our academy in Miami. The big benefits will be saving time and money on travel without sacrificing that in-person, 3D feel of live education. I have been personally keeping a close eye on this, and the minute it becomes viable, we at Luxury Brand Partners will jump on it.”
