“We have seen tremendous success and buy-in from our Advanced Education Team, Salon Technical Staff and Institute Educators who have been exposed to the 5-Star Salon program curriculum and experienced what Vivienne has to offer.  We are proud to say that our team members who are exposed to this curriculum and feedback from Vivienne and her team are really developing an “eye” for hairdressing!  They have taken their consultations to the next level, seeing the guest as an individual, seeing shape, thinking about placement, enhancing the guest’s best features and truly customizing an experience.   Mastering these types of behaviors as a Stylist is what will set them apart within this industry and create a real point of difference with their level of customer service, technical confidence and competence as a service provider.
