This 90s hairstyle is making a comeback, and for a good reason.

If the term "chunky highlights" conjures some rather nightmarish memories of the late nineties when it seemed that striped hair was all the rage… you're not alone. The term itself doesn't exactly sound incredibly appealing. But there's a reason chunky highlights are making a triumphant return in 2021, and it's all about the technique.  We will discuss WHY the 90's are trending and pin point the artist and celebrities' that are the trend setters from the 90's. As well as how you can transition this trend to your daily clients that sit in your chair.

The average ticket for a Keratin Smoothing Treatment is $300. If you do ONE client a week, every week for a year, that’s almost $20,000! (Now multiply those same results by the REAL number of clients you will see each week… and we are talking about some serious money.)

Earn more $$$ for yourself and your salon by learning the benefits of adding a formaldehyde-free keratin smoothing system to your service menu. In this exciting class, attendees will explore the differences between some of the industry’s most popular smoothing treatments/keratins while learning more about the revolutionary new Keraplasty Keratin Smoothing System, a Triphasic formulation which thickens hair by replacing amino acids missing in the hair strand, restructures disulfide bonds to reduce/control curl, and improves the condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair to eliminate frizz/smooth the cuticle for up to 4 months, all without Formaldehyde/Methylene Glycol... or those awful fumes found in some other keratin lines!
