This past weekend our lovely apprentice, Lauren, packed her bags and headed to California for a Unite Academy training session! We sat down to get all the good details of her adventures to the sunny state.
1. Tell Me About Your Trip:
A few months ago I was approached by Emma, where she presented me with the opportunity to travel to California and attend this round of Unite classes. It was taught by Nine Zero One Salon Academy at the Unite Headquarters in California. It was three classes rolled into one and laid out over two days, making it was very comprehensive, exciting and informative. The topic was all things related to beach hair, including cuts, color, style and braids.
2. What Was One Thing You Learned:
They had some great information on color formulation. This is a topic I’ve been eager to learn more about and I was really excited to gain knowledge on.
3. Tell Me Some Highlights Of The Classes:
It was great being able to do so much hands on work and was nice that the classes were so jammed packed with information. I also really enjoyed getting to meet hairstylists from all around the country.
4. What Techniques Did You Learn That You Can Use In The Salon Today?
I feel like everything was applicable to bring back to the chair. From the balyage application to the braid style outs, everything was tailored for actual use in the salon as opposed to avant guard style.
5. Is There Anything Else You Would Like To Add?
Overall it was an incredibly inspiring and educational experience. From getting to see the warehouse to where they do their photo shoots to getting to meet the Unite team. Going behind the scenes was really great. The Nine Zero One Salon Academy staff was also incredible. I enjoyed getting to learn from such a professional and talented group of people.
