Education & Training

The world of beauty and salon management is constantly evolving and we feel a strong responsibility to stay on the cutting edge (pun intended 😀) by learning the latest trends and techniques.

For over 10 years, both Nicole and Kelly have attended numerous trainings, events and seminars around the country, and have applied fresh ideas to the salon while holding in-house staff trainings. Our stylists have attended trainings off-site as well, and occasionally we bring educators into the salon to teach us right in our place of business.

If there’s a new, better, faster or easier way to serve our clients without ever compromising quality, we’ll learn it, perfect it and add it to our services.

It is our great pleasure to invest in continuous learning from world-renowned educators. We love taking what we’ve learned in certification programs and courses and providing a world-class, on-trend experience to the delight of our amazing clients.

Here’s a list of places we’ve traveled in our quest for industry knowledge:

Orlando, Florida • Sarasota, Florida (hair extensions certification) • Nashville, Tennessee • New York City (GoldWell Academy) • Rhode Island (multiple locations) • Boston (multiple locations) • South Shore (multiple locations) • Connecticut • All throughout New England
