The Senior Hairdressing classes had two professional artists come to our school to give an advanced seminar. Beauty experts Yolanda Leatherwood and Debbie MacDonald from Design Essentials demonstrated numerous products and services. They taught our hairdressing students chemical product knowledge and styling products with resulting benefits. They also informed the students on advanced styling techniques and customer service retention. It was a very informative, fun day.
