Stylists and Brands Offer Free Education During Coronavirus Outbreak

Free Hair Education During Coronavirus

As of March 19, 2020, at least five states have mandated salon and barbershop closures in an effort to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19. Additionally, thousands of salons have voluntarily shut their doors in order to comply with the Center for Disease Control's recommendation of maintaining a social distance of six feet between people. But stylists are an intrepid group, and several are offering free education during this uncertain period to not only help their fellow stylists practice their skills, but to also maintain a sense of community and normalcy. We will update this page as more classes become available. If you want to add a class to this list, please email Amy Dodds at [email protected].


Ryan Weeden's Free Masterclass
Ryan Weeden, Wella global ambassador and founder of Masters of Balayage, is offering a free Masterclass on March 19 at 5 PM Pacific to discuss ways to move forward, including income alternatives, how to stay positive and how to future-proof your business, as well as taking questions from the audience.
