Try to get your reps to come into the salon to give you product knowledge classes, cutting classes and color classes.  Find out when the next hair/trade show is in your area and get everyone to go.

We try to have a class in our salon once a month.  It keeps us fresh.....

Have weekly 'jam sessions' where each week one of the stylist has to teach the class (a presentation section and a hands on section). This will allow everyone to share some of their knowledge. Make a sign that says "leave your ego at the door", and I'm sure that this will offend someone who shouldn't be in the class anyway as they will be a complete pain. I could be wrong, though.. but...
