Salon Master Stylists and Colorists
The history of our industry is vast, but the first influencer was an iconic stylist named Vidal Sassoon. He owned high end salons around the world and he believed the foundation of all hair style is achieved through a haircut. So that skill should be prioritized, and we agree. You can’t blend extensions, compliment color, or keep hair healthy, without good cutting skills.
Beauty schools focus on basics for graduates to pass a State Board test that is decades old. Most modern master stylists don’t do many of the services on the state board test. Our industry is trend driven, which is why beauty schools encourage graduates to seek salons that offer mentor programs. Few salons offer this because it requires costly salon resources, so over time salon service quality has decreased. If you’ve ever have had a bad cut, you probably remember it. But if you’ve left a salon thinking it was a good visit because you don’t “hate” your hair, that’s a prime example how medicricity has become the new normal.
Master Stylists are Mentored By other Master Stylists
Before social media, booth rental, and chain salons, stylists developed through mentoring. A good stylist can make a customer satisfied, but an exceptional stylist understands anatomy and chemistry. Studio 39 owner was mentored by a salon owner and master stylist who was a leader in the salon world. That type of mentoring continues here because it cultivates skill early. This is why our team can explain how to obtain your hair goals with good communication. Key skills like these are learned from a real Master Stylist.
“Only one who devotes all to a cause with their whole soul and strength can be a true master.”
