Hands-On Advanced Color Class? You got it!

Are you looking for an advanced color class that emphasizes actual color, not a brand?  We have the class for you! The Self Tour of Haircolour is a Scruples Academy event that they are taking on the road!  And we are one of the privileged locations they have picked to host this event.

The Self Tour of Haircolour walks you through how to look at a client’s skin color, eye color, bone structure and face shape to determine how you should approach hair color.  This two-day academy class is awesome, approved by Modern Salon (read review here), and is only available for 10 stylists.  Sign up TODAY!!!



Scruples Self-Tour of Haircolour:

Date:    March 31 – April 1 (Monday & Tuesday)
Location:    Armstrong McCall South Austin, 512-444-6777
Awarded:    Workbook, mannequin head, certificate of completion
Cost:   $185, includes all product, mannequin, lunch for both days
Educator:  Ana Chablet (bi-lingual)
Bring with you: clips, combs, blow dryer & nozzle, oval brush, paddle brush, vent brush, shears, razor and clippers

As early as the first day of beauty school, professionals are taught the importance of establishing a relationship with clients—knowing how to generate clear and open communication is key in developing a relationship where the client feels heard, at ease and satisfied with the visit—and it all starts with the consultation.

“Many colorists fall into the ‘fast food hairdressing’ trap—they skip the consultation, grab the swatch book, tell clients to pick out their color and they put it on,” says Amie Breckenridge Goltz, Director of Field Education and Scruples Academy. “What happens when the client is unhappy with the outcome? You hold up the book and say, ‘Well this is the color you picked out. See it’s exactly the same color as the swatch.’ We need to get rid of the fast food mentality and enter fine dining. ‘Let me walk you through our specials. Do you like fish? May I suggest the salmon?’ Clients are looking to you to know what’s best.”

But the challenge is selecting what’s best—and, Breckenridge Goltz says, that shouldn’t be determined by what colors are attractive out of a swatch book. Breckenridge Goltz says colorists should have a step-by-step procedure to determine how to customize formulas, placement, application and tonal family so every client leaves satisfied every visit.

Scruples’ Self-Tour of Haircolor is a two-day hands-on program with mannequins that teaches how to understand each client’s personality and individual characteristics, enabling them to create the perfect color service.
