What is it we actually do around here? We empower salon professionals with life-changing principle-based knowledge so that they can fearlessly tackle EVERY situation. It’s a big claim, we get that. After helping hundreds of thousands of stylists and owners smash their goals in business and in life, we get to make claims like that.
We don’t teach haircuts. We share principle-based Design and Finishing with stylists committed to owning their careers. We don’t teach teachers. We share world-class proven Facilitation techniques with educators committed to a transformational experience for their learners. So yeah, that’s what we do. Check out The Courses for details and let’s go change some lives together.
1. The Courses
The best educators in the world don't TELL you the info; they draw you in, they engage you, they lead you in a transformative experience. These are the tools they use (and so much more in this package!)
The absolute best tool for Design Educators. Use it with the Design course for the most effective ways of engaging your learners. NEW: added skills & drills and How to Teach Hairstyle Suitability!
Understand haircutting instead of memorizing haircuts. 7 face shapes, 4 profiles. Straight, wave, frizz, curls. Brushes and hot tools. Countless products. Make all your decisions with confidence.
2. Team Accounts Are Coming Soon
**COMING SOON** This is a big deal. Here are the most important tools you can have for growing a strong team with built-in accountability. Assign homework, track progress, and check quiz results all from the Dashboard. Sorry for the delay – we’ve been working with schools to get them started and they are now good to go. For salons, you can buy multiple accounts now, and you can invite users to join your group, but package pricing has not been created yet, and we’re still building the Group Management pages. That’s worth waiting just a little longer for. We suggest getting started with your own Superstar Educator subscription now, and adding your learners soon.

3. Ok! Now What?
After you make your purchase you will receive your login credentials by email. Tap the login button at the upper right. If you are using a shared computer, be sure to log out when you’re done. After login you should be redirected to your profile page. If not, tap the Profile button.
4. Your Profile Page
This is where most of the action starts. Tap “Edit profile” if you want to change your password (always a good idea). Under Registered Courses is a list of everything to which you have access. Tap the name of your course to open it up.
5. The Course Page
Courses are divided into Lessons, which cover Topics. Tap a Lesson to open its Topics, and tap a Topic to get started.
6. The Video Player
Since there is a first time for everybody, we’ll mention that tapping the right-pointing arrow will start playing the video. Tapping the two vertical slashes will pause the video. If you can’t hear anything, check the volume on your device.
Most Topics have plenty of information and essential exercises below the video. DOING is the greater part of LEARNING, so do not shortchange yourself by missing this stuff. Seriously, just by doing the exercise your knowledge retention goes from below 30% (passive watching) to above 75% (active learning).
We love goals. We love celebrating wins. We love watching that little progress meter fill up. When a video finishes playing, the “Mark Complete” button will light up. After you finish the exercises give yourself a high five and tap in another win.
Above the video is the Topic Progress tracker for the Lesson, and at the upper right is the My Progress tracker for the Course. These don’t change unless you tap “Mark Complete”. We find this is a good way of being your own best judge – don’t mark it until you own it!
If the Topic has a Quiz, you’ll need to complete the Quiz before you can mark the Topic as complete. Same goes for Lessons. All the Quizzes have to be done before you can mark your Course as complete.
