November 2016

In this month’s special partnership issue, we explore the new business ground salon and spa owners can conquer when they partner up with a distributor or manufacturer. Salon leaders Adam Broderick of Adam Broderick Salons and Spas and Scott Missad of Gene Juarez Salons and Spas and Salon Services' George Learned share tales of how they’re venturing into new service categories while expanding client demographics, reinvigorating team members and solidifying client loyalty along the way.

In addition, Van Michael’s New Talent Director Gregg Colbert walks us through their process for creating picture-perfect portfolios, Amanda Hair of Bob Steele Salons takes us along on a retreat she created for her top eight performers, and Gadabout’s Jana and Frank Westerbeke explain why their team focuses on a word of the year.

Plus, we show you what happened when excited stylists and owners explored hair-loss opportunities at the first Hair+ Summit.
