Our industry, at large, needs an upheaval. Too often we seek to change the outside world. It wasn't until I took a deep hard look at myself, that I realized I needed to become the change I wanted to see. Vivienne's Train the trainer program enlightens,
inspires and pierces, to the core, the very essence of what it means to advance from good to great!

I REALLY appreciateHairDesignerTV.com, as I can always go in and learn something.
There are times when I've seen a specic video 10 times and I still learn something on the 11th time that I missed previously.
