You can expect to spend three days learning how to take back your salon and improve your overall business. The classes are designed to share and reinforce best practices that have been tested and proven throughout the Bb. Network.
A Network Educator (NE) is a licensed stylist from a Bb. affiliate salon who is chosen to represent, inspire, and educate his or her fellow staff members on a part-time basis. The NE will provide continuous education for salon members about Bb. styling techniques, product usage and control, new product launches and customer service.
The ideal NE knows and loves Bb. products, is dedicated to the craft, is trusted and respected by you and your staff, has a passion for education, and has a desire for personal and professional development. Attend Salon Business Essentials and then work with your Bb.Consultant to select the best person for the role.
Upon registration, you will receive a packet of Required Data (also referred to as Prework) to attend the class. Bring copies of each component of the packet as the included information is integral to your class experience.
Recruiting other salon's employees while attending a class at Bb.U is something we will neither condone, endorse nor tolerate. We are a network of salons working towards a common vision of raising the status of hairdressing in the world. Poaching employees doesn't help us fulfill this vision.
The Network Educator is a dedicated stylist chosen by the salon management and their Bb.Consultant to represent and inspire his or her fellow stylists and lead monthly in-salon education.
You can expect to spend three full days immersed in classes that will prepare you for your new role as a Network Educator. The classes consist of public speaking, product knowledge, chair education, and styling techniques.
