What if every conversation was a win?
What if your whole staff were united in driving your business upward?
What if unhappy clients were unheard of?
When most of us think about improving our business we think about advertising, or dropping our prices, or maybe adding another service.
There is a growing mountain of evidence that says none of these will do as much for your salon as having a great team. That’s what makes people talk about you, and it’s what makes them come back.
Great teams are built out of training and culture. A superstar educator, trained in facilitation and in teaching it, brings both.
Facilitation is the fine art of helping people get where they need to go. A salon that delivers that for all its people – owner, manager, staff, client? That salon is unbeatable.
A Superstar Educator is centered in Heart, Hands, and Head. They are motivated, confident, and in control of their income. They can facilitate training for the rest of your team with authenticity in all three areas that define salon success: Sales, Skills, and Self.

Cool, but what's in it for me?
It’s not just a giant bucket of videos. This is stuff you and your team are going to use every day. It’s not just about styling a great head of hair although we certainly deliver that in Design and Finishing. It’s about a positive culture that makes people want to be there. It’s about making every client a walking talking testimonial. Sure, the journey may take some energy. But it won’t be a chore. It’s fun, full of wins, and you’ll see measurable success starting on Day 1. Becoming a legendary leader? Get started now.
When it comes right down to it...
You might have all the pieces lined up perfectly: location, funding, connections, but none of it is going to matter if your team doesn’t have the training. Facilitation is the fine art of helping people get where they need to go. If your business isn’t delivering that — meeting the needs of all your people — how strong is your business?
There is a lot of how-to in this collection, but we want to be clear: the leaders we remember are the ones who get us excited about learning. The ones who invite us in and make growing an active process. We remember their influence, and we carry their teaching with us always. This collection will help your educators become those legendary leaders of transformation.
- 50 videos and counting in Facilitation – this is the magic right here. Decide for yourself exactly how successful you and your business will be. From goal-setting and mindset through training and consultation, we’ve got your back in making every interaction a win.
- 52 videos in Principle-Based Design – how to analyze shape, how to control the placement of volume, the three movements that define hairstyling, and most of all: why
- 82 videos in the Design Playbook – nothing less than the very best way to teach Design with maximum engagement and success.
- 74 videos in Principle-Based Finishing – face shapes, profiles, determining hairstyle suitability, hot tools, hair product. We break it all down so that it’s easy to make the right decisions every time.
That’s 258 videos (and counting) answering all the questions in four decades of educating hundreds of thousands of stylists and trainers worldwide.
Ok, what's in the box?

Check it out:

52 videos making hair design so easy to understand that you will literally never need to learn another haircut. See a style and break it down to its elements: point, line, and angle. Analyze the movements that created it: elevation, over-direction, finger angle. Know your outcome before you cut. Everything you need to create, recreate, and communicate any hair design any time.
First, let’s hammer the headline: this collection of 82 videos is your absolute best tool for teaching Design. It’s a treasure trove of tools for leading your learners with maximum engagement. Use it side-by-side with Design to prep the night before class, and show up ready to change some lives. This edition has a ton of new info on skills & drills and determining hairstyle suitability. With the Playbook, teaching hair design is easy — and you’ll become a better facilitator.
74 videos systematically covering the principles of finishing hair. Seven face shapes, four profile types. Straight, wave, frizz, or curls. A multitude of brushes and hot tools. Countless hair products. We cover it ALL and we make it easy and fun. When you know the principles of finishing hair, you will make decisions with confidence. Take your clients from WHAT I HAVE to WHAT I WANT successfully every time. *note: we are in production on the new edition of Finishing but there is no need to wait – same education, new look, and Finishing subscribers get it automatically on release day.

Join us live online for free with all your burning questions and compare notes with other educators. Got challenges in motivating your team? We got you.

How long is all this going to take?
Tricky. How long is a piece of string? How long does it take to learn to play the piano? You could watch all the content in three months of your spare time, sure, but if that’s all there was to it we’d all be piano virtuosos. You’ll have things you want to focus on first, and there will be things that become more important later. Your first time through, you’ll miss a lot. Your second time through you’ll have put some of the learning into practice, and more of it is going to click for you. We’ve designed this to be your go-to resource, always there when you need it, whether it’s for starting your education program for the first time or for coaching new associates a year from now. This is such a valuable resource that we find most owners and educators just keep their subscription open. Plus, we’re always developing new assets.
Shut up and take my money!
It does sound crazy at the price, but this was super important to us: everybody needs this driving their business. So we made it so affordable that everybody can get it. The only question is who gets it before their competition does.
