Refresher Course for Salon Owners – Updating professional Skills

For any business big or small, any profession at any level, it is absolutely necessary for all those involved to hone their skills periodically. In the faced paced world of today, technology is continuously being updated with new innovations and pioneering inventions and those who do not absorb the changes get left behind in the race to move on from being mediocre to being successful. Given this scenario, regardless of the industry, it becomes a responsibility of businesses to advance skill sets so that better services can be delivered to clients across the board.

No business worth its salt can afford to miss out on this process. Take the case of salon owners in Bradford, who underwent a refresher course recently at the Bradford University. But first, why this location? It is because Bradford University in the city of Bradford, West Yorkshire is one of the finest institutions in the UK with a strong focus on vocational studies and stress on hands-on learning. The University provides world class facilities and prepares students to face the challenges of the world outside. The course was held at the David Hockney building that can boast of highly advanced facilities for hair and beauty salon teaching programs.

The unanimous opinion has been that the classes conducted by hair care giant Wella has been extremely beneficial and a resounding success. After completion, salon owners have been able to educate their staff about the latest cutting edge methods being introduced in the beauty care and treatment sector. The core of the classes in general and of application of colour in particular was well brought out by Amy Sontae who conducted the master class in colour. “We invited in local salon owners and managers and delivered training on being creative with colour as well as corrective work and colour theory. They take what they have learned back to their salons and share it with their staff what is happening at the forefront of the industry.”

Other industry leaders who took part in this exercise included Chelsea Larkin and Natalie Dewhirst of Precious Hair and Beauty Lounge in Crossflatts. Mrs. Larkin of course had a reason to be more than happy. For her it was a second homecoming. “I trained at Bradford College so it was nice to come back and see the new salons and facilities, which are excellent, and to catch up with the tutors and keep up to date with the latest trends.”

This phenomenon of refresher courses is given importance by all professionals who choose to excel in the field that they are in. Take the case of Stephen Blignaut. He is a leader in the anti aging and beauty industry in Australia, being an importer and distributor of highly sophisticated and technologically advanced equipment for a host of beauty treatments. These primarily consist of permanent hair removal and skin rejuvenation machines. In his words, “I believe in delivering products with a unique and genuine point of difference. I believe in delivering unbeatable service and training to all of our valued clients.”

Stephen and his company are always at the forefront of training salon owners and introducing them to world class technologies so that optimum use can be made of machines sold by him. Thus his clients are always brought to date with the latest methods prevailing in the industry. This is the trend that is prevailing in the modern business world.
