Hair Style Education: The Mastery

Eager cosmetology students, academy owners and educators joined major VIPs—including Paul Mitchell global artistic director Robert Cromeans, Paul Mitchel co-founder John Paul DeJoria and TV personality Tabatha Coffey—in celebrating The Mastery by Esani's grand opening on June 20 in Alpharetta, Georgia. During the opening gala, several models bedecked in haute hues and super 'dos meandered through the salon. One of the crowd favorites was the pastel violet-gray creation, seen above. Originated by Jamie Anderbery, design leader at The Mastery, the color was achieved by first prelightening hair to a level 10. Then Anderbery used equal parts Paul Mitchell UTP (Ultra Toner Platinum) and UTA (Ultra Toner Ash) with 10-volume developer + 4 violet color shots + 2 red color shots.

If you're looking to hone your skills, this advanced academy enjoys a full curriculum of hands-on, revolutionary training and inspired artistry, combined with high-end salon business success skills, to help you truly master your craft. The unique salon/education venue is co-owned by celeb stylist and Paul Mitchell editorial director Lucie Doughty and business-savvy marketer Arlene Lyons. For more info on classes, log on to
