4 Places for Stylists to Get Education While Salons Close From the Coronavirus


Setbacks are common, and "succeeding" in this world often isn't the result of getting lucky. Usually, it's what those do with the setback and how they persevere through the adversity that shapes what they will achieve. After all, J.K. Rowling was denied by 12 major publishers for her draft of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Don't give up!

Some stylists and salon owners may feel uncertain about their future, in light of the salon closings due to COVID-19. We hear you, and we're with you. However, by investing time into online education, our beauty industry will come back stronger and smarter than ever. We're providing education and resources for stylists and salons to spend their time on during the coronavirus closings. All events are listed below are in Central Time (CST).
