To host a class you would be required to sell and promote a min of 10 full paid tickets at $350 each, this secures my air travel, hotel, car etc. (all inclusive) Once 10 full price tickets are sold the host salon gets 3 free tickets for their use, sell 15 full price tickets salon gets 5 free tickets. There is also a morning look and learn option for those unable to attend the full day which is $150 pp


Customized packages are available as well as special pricing for salons looking to book a private event. 

Host salon does agree to a $250 non-refundable deposit to secure the date, if the class sells out the $250 deposit comes back to you. Host salon should have ample space to accommodate and hold the min amount of attendees.

My education sponsor will send in product to use along with take away goodies. Classes are a full day which includes a morning seminar, afternoon hands-on workshop with either models or mannequins, host supplies a demo model as well and provides a simple lunch usually sandwiches or pizza.

I would love to come and give you an awesome education experience. The benefit to your salon is having a nationally recognized educator come to your salon and have you invite area professionals to attend.
