We are sad to announce the passing on October 11, 2011 of Ken Kassidy. Kassidy was always a very positive advocate and spokesperson for the professional salon and spa industry. His 40 year career included a long success story as a licensed hair designer, salon owner, educator, consultant and the owner of Kassidy's Salon Management Consultants. His company offered seminars, videos, tapes and guidance on front desk operations, retail programs, booth rental structures, legal structures, employee relations and salon management issues. He was a regularly featured speaker at many regional and nation al beauty trade shows. He was also actively involved in politics to support and protect the professional beauty industry. Kassidy unselfishly dedicated his entire career to helping others succeed.
His often published mission remained, “To promote, empower and expand growth in the professional cosmetology industry through informative education, expanding roles played by the salon and spa owners, employees, independent contractors, booth renters and the retail sales force which play an important part in today’s industry!”
Kassidy’s words of wisdom were published in most every professional beauty trade publication. Ken Kassidy was a member of the Professional Beauty Association, Day Spa Association, NCA, CCA and PBCF. For more information, visit: www.Kassidys.com.
