The Textured Hair Elevated’s 2nd Annual THE Summit Is Happening January 17 & 18
Get All The Deets On This 2-Day, Live Digital Event!
If expanding your services to include curly and textured hair is at the top of the 2021 resolution list, then you’re in luck because THE Summit, The Textured Hair Elevated’s education event, is back on January 17 and 18, 2021. That’s right! Two days, 10 artists and 10 hours of live online education focused on elevating, educating and ensuring stylists of all backgrounds are able to expertly work with any client’s texture.
“Participants will learn from top stylists in the industry on how to work with all textures across all categories: Color, cut and style,” shares Tippi Shorter (@tippishorterrank), Co-Founder of THE Summit & MIZANI Global Artistic Director. “The importance of understanding texture is vital to everyone’s professional growth as a stylist. The key for any artist is to understand that hair is just a fabric. From there, the real growth happens and manipulating any hair (or fabric) is an art.”
