Mickey Bolek: Why Top Hair Stylists Keep on Learning
Posted by Mickey B.
I recently attended a business seminar at a local university. My attention was captured by a poster on the wall that said, “The one who hustles the fastest is the most successful.” When it comes to my career and the careers of my staff, I share that philosophy. As top hair stylists, we want to keep up with trends in the salon business.
Hair style trends are constantly changing. Last season straight long hair was the look; this season clients are opting for hair that is full and wavy. Balayage highlights and Ombres have taken center stage in hair color and it looks like they will be around for a bit. While some trends come and go, others have staying power. It is important that your stylist knows the techniques used to achieve both new trends and classic styles.
Here at Michael Anthony Salon in DC we require that our stylists continually update their professional education and training. We host in-salon sessions, attend hair shows around the country, and use online education to keep up with changing trends and techniques. It’s our best way to keep up with all the changes in hairstyles, techniques, and products.
At your next appointment, feel free to talk with your stylist about any recent education he or she may have received. Find out what they have learned and if they are ready to create a version for you. Chances are that your stylist will welcome the opportunity to demonstrate a new skill or recommend a new style or product just for you.
We are always trying new and innovative tools to help us produce the looks you see in the fashion magazines. This is the core of our success. We love what we do and we are ready to help you achieve your special look.
Enjoy your hair!!!
