Education at O2 by Jennifer Leigh
Did you know that at O2 Salon, the stylists get free education twice a month? As the salon has grown, we have added in-salon education with rock star stylists from Goldwell and Arrojo.
Goldwell is the colour company we work with. Our commitment is to using the best products to protect the health of your hair, Goldwell is manufactured in Europe, as such it meets EU health and beauty standards, which exceed the standards of the FDA. In addition, Goldwell offers many options for our stylists to customize your colour.
Topchic is their original prodauct, and it is a solid permanent color that offers excellent grey coverage. Colorance, their demi-permanent color offers inter-lipid technology for superior shine. They offer an express toner, which can be a godsend in between highlight appointments. If you are feeling brassy or washed out, the express toner is your savior. For lowlights or returning to your natural color, many salons would employ a permanent color to do so. Although that can be the right tool for the job, we love Goldwell’s Colorance Cover Plus, which gives amazing durability. Nectaya is a permanent color those seeking a more natural option. It is ammonia free, 91% naturally derived, with 100% natural fragrance. Men’s re-shade is a colour for the gents. It reduces grey without lifting, so it never turns brassy. Wanting a vivid, pastel or fashion tone? Elumen is probably the tool of choice. It works on a physical level, as opposed to a chemical one, so it doesn’t open the cuticle to do it’s job, creating long lasting vibrancy.
We recently welcomed Derrick Zeno to the salon to teach creative colour to the team. He’s a guest artist from Reno, who has won ColorZoom, a global competition put on by Goldwell, and is definitely a stylist who thinks outside the box. The class he brought us was the most advanced class offered by the company. Team O2 was so ready to absorb the knowledge, that Derrick fit in 8 hours of class within 6. With an O2 Stylist, you will never be bored with your colour.
Later this month, Team O2 is going for a hardcore run, as we are excited to bring in John, a self-proclaimed hair nerd. John is one of the top educators at the ground breaking ARROJO salon in NYC. “Passionate about the craft, John appreciates the beauty and control of precise technique, but understands what makes success: “What matters most is your ability to connect with another person and use your skills to make them look great and feel their best,” he says.He’ll be teaching us scissor and razor skills to inspire and engage us to expand our skills so you can have the best cut and style possible.”- ARROJO.
Team O2 is always indulging ourselves in continuing education because of one simple reason, We love hair!
