Welcome to the incredible world of hairdressing. The biggest link to a great future in hairdressing is ongoing education. Most important is the quality of education you get from the beginning. It's crucial to come away with technical skills as well as having a great business mind set.
I have had TSPA students with less than a year's experience in my advanced seminars and they can keep up with and sometimes surpass hairdressers with far more years in the business. That comes from the quality of TSPA education.
I say, with all humility, that this profession has provided me with an incredible journey that packed my bags of experience with everything from working behind the chair, working backstage at fashion week, winning and judging awards, to traveling to salons and stages locally and throughout the world teaching and training other hairdressers. If you would have asked Mary Baran's boy Chris, if he thought he would be doing that when he started, I would have said, "No way!" And if I can do it — so can you.
