Asking for a friend who is having trouble posting from her phone: "I am possibly going to move to a new salon, I will be going from being a senior stylist at a mid-price salon to senior stylist/salon manager at a high-end salon. I know that a lot of clients will follow, but how do I transition them from my old prices to my new prices? I don't want to scare them off by raising my prices too high too quickly, any suggestions? Thanks!"See More
"I love Hotheads. I've heard good things about Simplicity as well.
Keep in mind, you get what you pay for, quality extensions aren't cheap. Cheap extensions usually tangle, fade and break. Remember, your name is at stake."
"Word of mouth and booth work. I attend a local craft show, and do Up Do's live. It helps that I am just now really going back to work since having my kids, so my enthusiasm for the craft definitely helps the word of mouth. In Canada there…"

I have been in the industry for 8 years. For 4 of those years I was an educator for a color company, but decided to resign when I had my daughter. I love my job, I love my clients, I love that this is my art. Continuing education is vital! "If you're green, you grow; if you're ripe, you rot." I firmly believe that. I am always looking to grow and learn!

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.
