Nearly 65% of the world’s population have textured hair, resulting in a market of 1 billion people, yet many clients with textured hair report not having equitable access to professionally trained, licensed stylists with the skill set and experience to provide services on their hair type.
This panel discussion will address how to empower your stylists with the confidence they need to perform texture services, why it’s a smart business move, and more importantly how it enables you to be a leader in your community to achieve a future where no one who walks into a salon is turned away.
