Members of Samuel Cole Salon’s Education Team, stylists Katie and Libby are instrumental in teaching several cutting, coloring and styling classes to Associates who go through our Immersion Program. Committed to build leadership, technical and teaching skills, they attended Bumble and bumble University’s Network Educator Series at Bb.U in New York City.
Continuous education makes me a better stylist because I learn new ways to style my guests and how to teach my guests how to style their own hair, which is one of my favorite aspects of what I do.” – Stylist Katie Pursche
The three-day course included sessions on product ingredients, leadership, presentation skills and hands-on styling. Educators demonstrated techniques that Bumble and bumble’s Global Artistic Director Laurent Philippon used to style runway models for Lacoste at New York Fashion Week. Katie and Libby loved these techniques, as they applied them in a hands-on session with live models.
It was exciting to see a new twist on styling curls. The technique created a loose flat wave, which a lot of our guests are really into right now.” – Stylist Libby Bink
