FreeSalonEducation.com By Gratitude Salon Education
Matt Beck, founder of Gratitude Salon Education is excited to invite all stylists and future stylists to Freesaloneducation.com! Now more than ever Matt and his team at Gratitude Salon Education are showcasing their passion for education and for the salon industry by offering an on-line learning network at no charge.
"A teacher of mine handed down videos to me in beauty school. The knowledge I had gained for free was amazing! The many artists and teachings in those videos inspired me to further my career and become an educator" says Beck.
Now, almost ten years later, Matt has launched Freesaloneducation.com. A site dedicated to providing the highest quality step by step education on a weekly basis for anyone who wants to log in, be inspired, and learn! Stylists can expect education on cutting, coloring, styling, barbering, and business tips. You can also look forward to totally free educational videos sent by email and live web classes broadcast from in the salon. This truly is a great affordable (obviously) investment that stylists can use to study at their own pace and convenience.

Matt I learned from your video..you explained it so good..I got it!!....I actually was giving up hope on learning the fades and getting out the lines..it has been 4 years and no one to help me or care enough..I was let go at a franchise in one day because my fades where not too good you could see the lines and they didn't offer me education like they advertise..I was bummed out..this was last week..anyway I was just going through my Facebook and I saw your video I watched it NAND you used a 3 1/2 and tan worked down to the 2 in the clipper.when you said you start out with a medium length it made sense..because I always start out with a short cut and work my way up..it made sense to see the medium length and work your way down..I got it!!...thank you sooooo much I have another interview and I have more. Confidence on my practical when I go..thank you..I want to take your classes when your in phx..you gave me hope and made me love my career again..I was running away to do my skincare which I do but not full time I want to balance hair and skin.thanks your an angel
Just as the solar eclipse made its way over Austin, the Kenra Professional team took the BTC stage for their sixth year in a row. And, as one of the only teams to be with us since the beginning, they made the stage their own and hit us with bomb color tips and celeb-worthy upstyles. Laken Rose, @hairandmakeupbysteph, Cassie Siskovic and David Lopez talked the importance of products, getting creative without always having to prelighten and perfecting your styling skills. #behindthechair #thebtcshow
Joico brought together haircoloring masters Vivienne Mackinder and Mark Minetti and social media stars @stylistricardosantiago, @philipring and @larisadoll for a presentation overflowing with color. So many models. So many formulas (which will all be up on behindthechair.com later this week!). So much education. First, Vivienne, Ricardo and Mark shared tips on how to complement different face shapes and use haircolor to contour. Ricardo shared his favorite rose gold formula (which he says is still his most-requested color in the salon) and Mark demoed an amazing peachy blonde. Then, Larisa and Phil shared a new color technique they’ve been working on for three months JUST for our show! #behindthechair #thebtcshow
Ammon Carver, Leah Freeman and Matt Swinney—2017 Stylist Choice Award winners for Favorite Education Team—served major take-home tips that will definitely make your life easier behind the chair. For example, Leah (fresh off her #ONESHOT win for Big Shot North American Creative Color Shot) recommends balayaging on wet hair for max speed and the best blur. And we loved when Ammon gave a shoutout to Matt (another #ONESHOT winner for Big Shot North American Avant Garde Shot) and Leah for always pushing him and each other to work hard at their craft.
