First Chair

Fall 2014

Your fall handbook is here! We’ve put together an issue packed with inspiration, tips, tricks and how-tos to get your creative juices flowing. For fall, we’re celebrating hairdressers of all levels of talent, experience and fame.

Whether it’s transformations using extensions, trendy new ways to rock your everyday black or putting you on the path to greatness from industry experts, we hope you love this issue as much as we do.

You can be anything you want to be. Because a cosmetology license opens up more doors than the one to cutting hair, we want to help you narrow down a specialty and step up to success at every stage of your career—starting NOW.

And remember—no matter your level of experience, it’s a privilege to be in this industry; it’s amazing the power we have as we interact with clients and make them look and feel their best. Be proud of what you do and keep working to make yourself even better.
