commitment. We believe so strongly in furthering ourselves that our educators have traveled to NYC, Miami, California, London, Paris and Canada to help grow our network and train with the industry's most celebrated.
As the head of Education at Mode Salon Spa East and West I have a responsibility to our guest and to my team to create an environment that shares my love and passion for this industry. Danny and I were invited along with the 20 top salons in Florida to attend the industries most respected and sought after program redCHOCOLATE. David Adams and Virginia Meyer, founders of redCHOCOLATE, a new color education program that connects the salon owner, manager and service provider to the essential tools, techniques and processes for sustained growth. David Adams is a globally renowned colorist and former Aveda technical artistic director. Virginia Meyer is a former Aveda Corp. executive and world renowned business consultant. This changed the way we see color. Six weeks later we were certified redCHOCOLATE and this changed our culture. “Beautiful color begins with healthy hair.” This famous RedCHOCOLATE saying now resonates with my team and I daily.
Shortly after redCHOCOLATE certification I completed Vivienne Mackinder’s 16 week Editorial Series. This competition focused on Editorial Styling, editorial styling is one of my greatest passions and my greatest challenges. I was the winner of this 16 week competition. Editorial styling focuses on print, runway, red carpet, bridal, and collection work. Some of the greatest hairdresser’s in the world are editorial stylist. Vidal Sassoon, Trevor Sorbe, Vivienne Mackinder, Angelo Seminara, David Adams and Ted Gibson are some of my hair heroes.
