Braids & Brides: Heather Chapman Takes Over Salon Sessions

At Salon Sessions, we are firm believers of hair education. Because the industry is continually changing, we believe that hair education shouldn’t stop after you’ve become licensed, which is why our salon offers its hairstylists education every Tuesday. Aside from our personal education workshops, we offer a variety of hair workshops and invite the industry’s renowned educators and stylists to our salon. This month, we were privileged and absolutely honored to host national, independent educator for advanced braided, bridal and creative updos, Heather Chapman.

On March 7 and 8, we hosted Heather for her sold-out, Braids & Brides Hairstyling Workshop. Each day, Salon Sessions welcomed 60 local and national hairstylists who attended this workshop and can we just say how awesome these two days were?! The first half of Heather’s workshop was a demo. During this time, she shared her technique on her gorgeous braided hairstyles and bridal updos while she worked on her two hair models.Heather’s workshop covered social media and business tips, along with how to photograph a hairstyle and capture the best view while using a smart phone.

The second half of the workshop was hands-on and the hairstylists brought in their own hair models to put Heather’s workshop techniques to use. During this half, stylists received one on one advice and critiquing while they made their hairstyles come to life.
