Kala Kevin Murphy Graduation!!!
So, I finally did it! I completed and graduated Kevin Murphy Sessions number four. I am honored to say I am now officially the first and only Kevin Murphy Sessions Salon Stylist in Santa Cruz County. The experience was amazing. Yes, it was a bit of a travel to get to the classes and I hit some bumps along the way, but accomplishing the course was so rewarding. I learned so much from the talented directors of the Sessions training, everything from intensive product knowledge, to working in teams in the salon to help collaborate on projects, and even how to be confident presenting in front of large crowds which had never been my strong suit. The best thing I took from this Sessions Salon training was to always have a plan of attack. Whether it be a plan with a client for a goal color correction, hair health, or in your career in general as a Stylist. Set goals and work towards them.
A little about the last & final session. This was an 8-hour graduation. The goal was to have a live model to present a look on to your fellow Stylists and salon crew. The look was to come from something that we learned over the course of our time in the program and to present on stage to the crowd. I chose to use a roller set we learned in Session number two which was a set that is in the Kevin Murphy 2018 collection that I absolutely fell in love with. I set my models hair and the final look was an elegant loose wave curl with one side slicked back. I was inspired by this look because I felt that it was something I could use in the salon on an actual client whether it be to wear to a wedding, or a special event. Being on stage was definitely nerve racking, but I came up with a plan and presented to the best of my ability. When I was done I was thrilled I overcame a big fear of mine and killed it on stage. Over all, I know KM Sessions Training helped me grow as a Stylist and I am so excited to be able to bring all my knowledge back to Click Click Bang! and be a part of an international Kevin Murphy Sessions team. I really thank everyone that supported me along the way and was there for me throughout my journey. Now we send off our next stylist Jacquie for the training! Thanks so much!
Until next time!!
