Local stylists at LeFore’s Skin Care and Health Spa got some hands-on training with two industry icons during recent training sessions.
The team from the Poplar Street spa and salon met with Sam Brocato two weekends ago in Seattle, where his new formaldehyde-free silk straightening system was introduced. Over Brocato’s more than three-decade career he has amassed a long list of honors, including World Top Fashion Hairstylist and Editorial Stylist of the Year. He’s also been inducted into the Hairdresser Hall of Fame in London and received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the North American Hairstyling Awards. At his New York City home his Sam Brocato Salon focuses on hair health and continually improving the technology and craft of creating and maintaining great hair and skin through nontoxic products and treatments.
Early the next week a networking haircutting class was hosted in Walla Walla at Browns Salon. Owner and operator Jeanette Brown hosted a class by Anthony Edge, international artistic director for label.m .
Edge is a more than 20-year veteran hairdresser, twice nominated as a finalist for the prestigious British Hairdressing Awards. At label.m he develops the education program for salons across the Americas.
Joining LeFore’s stylists in attendance at that event were representatives from C Salon, Impress Salon and a mixture of other stylists, the announcement said.
