Wahl Professional has announced industry professional Stephanie Polansky (@realpolanskycrew) as their new Global Director of Education! Beginning as a stylist, Stephanie brings 27 years industry experience to Wahl and previously served as Global Director of Education and Shows for Sexy Hair while heading two sister brands, STMNT and MyDentity under the Henkel umbrella. Her impressive portfolio also provides experience as Head of Global Education Innovation at KMS and managed education development for Pureology and Redken.
“What drew me to the brand is the fact that they are family owned and have an entrepreneurial spirit. The Wahl brand itself is just so amazing, and to be a part of it is huge” Stephanie says. “Being able to help barbers and stylists become stronger at what they do is a big draw, as well as creating new content to help them better understand the Wahl tools. There is so much potential for education that can make them stronger.”
