Oil is the New Serum
The new generation of hair oils is a rapidly growing category. With claims of being a pre-shampoo treatment, leave-in conditioner, detangler, shine enhancer, frizz reducer, static controller, heat protectant, prevents breakage, disguises split ends, polishes texture, smoothes and hydrates, it’s no wonder there’s a HUGE cult following of both stylists and consumers alike.

Blown Away With Damien Carney: Join the Team!

Blown Away With Damien Carney: Follow the Leader!
Follow the Leader When you love your work as much as I do—and if you’re reading this, I’ll bet you do!—then nothing makes you happier than a cohesive team that strives for excellence each and every day. Sadly, my loves, that’s not always the case, is it? So often I hear from wonderful salon owners lamenting the fact that they can’t get their staffers to maintain the high standards necessary to run and grow a successful business. Or just as frustrating: They have a team that’s going in all different directions.
