This shows there is a lot of money in this industry and as a business, our desire for you is to be one of the people PROSPERING from this MULTI BILLION DOLLAR industry. It is important we care for our clients:
Especially when you consider some of the comments we uncovered from some clients in our research – “I have lost faith in hairdressers; they damaged my hair beyond repair when all I asked for was a perm”, Hairdressers did not consider my feelings when they started slapping chemical relaxers into my hair. I lost all my hair in addition to losing my confidence; now all I do is wear wigs!” “African hair braiders are the worst. They are ignorant, have bad manners & attitude and are also uneducated. They are anti-virgin Afro kinky hair type as they insist you relax your hair before they can braid it. Their customer service is non-existent.””Hair braiders do not listen, they braid your hair too tight and this causes headache – sometimes the scalp bleeds, they do not give you new ideas, suggestions or information.” Etc etc
For these reasons and more, we have structured our training to address all these issues and many more. We aim to train you to be ahead of your clients. We want you to be contemporary and fashionable so we do not lose out on our precious clients who have options and will take their business elsewhere if we do not meet their demands.
