Our Story

Our entire education curriculum is built to give our students a full understanding of our 3 core focus points: Chemistry, Design and Business.

It is our proven philosophy that without a complete education and proper real-world implementation of these 3 elements, one cannot operate a profitable salon without massive limitations and frustrations - many of which are entirely hidden to the naked eye of the typical salon owner.
