Keep your salon cutting edge with online education

Web Editor | July 10, 2011 | 3:16 PM

TO KEEP YOUR SALON GROWING and your staff creatively inspired, advanced education is a must. But bringing in outside educators or sending staff members away for education can be a drain on time and budget.

Not only are online courses entertaining and visually appealing, they allow you to customize opportunities for each of your staff members and allow them to complete the course at a time and place that is convenient for them. In addition, a handful of states now allow online courses to satisfy mandated continuing education hours. Look into these online opportunities:
