Why I needed, what I'm now offering!
In 2006 I graduated from a predominately white cosmetology school that only taught me enough to pass the state board. There was no focus on hair color beyond what would be on that test OR no education on how to work with the specific needs of highly textured hair, and THAT didn’t get me far once I was in a salon.
Once in the salon, I had no idea how to handle situations such as color corrections or how to mimic any picture a client brought to me to replicate.
It wasn’t until I completely TORE UP somebody’s hair that I knew I needed to take it upon myself to take more classes and get the foundation I didn’t receive in cosmetology school.
I took 3 full years and invested in additional hair color education from some of my favorite colorist, color brands and even took the time to get my cosmetology instructor's license, so that I had a full understanding of not only hair color, but how to educate other stylist in a way that worked for them.
"Adrienne has a genuine love of mentoring & teaching others to become great. I didn't feel lost & I received the 1 on 1 attention that’s essential to learning. She allowed me as a student to take charge of my own learning through experiencing different ways to approach color and still receive amazing results."
"I love how Adrienne asked each of us what our problem area was. Then throughout the class she answered or demonstrated what to do or not to do pertaining to our individual problems. The biggest things I learned was foil placement and how to distribute my product properly."
"I thoroughly enjoyed Adrienne's color class! I love that instead of just teaching technique, she took the time to go over theory which made the practical part easier to grasp. She gave us they "why" and "when" we should use the different techniques and the product knowledge she shared was an added bonus!"
Because she is known for bringing an air of elegance, sass and individuality to each of her clients. Adrienne's skill has made her one of the most sought after stylists for stunning transformations.
Adrienne has been apart of the beauty industry for more than 15 years, but it wasn't until 5 years ago that she realized hair color was " her thing".
It wasn't long after being trained under some of the best stylist in the industry, becoming a platform artist for 2 global companies, and receiving her Master Cosmetology Instructor License, that Adrienne realized her passion for education exceeded her expectations.
Putting her love for education and support for other colorist on the same platform was the obvious decision and so was birthed HAIR COLOR CONCEPTS® ACADEMY & HAIR COLOR CONCEPTS® MAGAZINE!
