10 Habits of a Young Stylist is a creative workshop for new beauty graduates or young stylists looking to expand their career in their own terms and is being offered at the International Salon and Spa Expo (ISSE) in Long Beach, CA , this weekend. Created and orchestrated by Cynthia Valdez, owner / creative director of Vinyl Beauty Studio in Austin, TX, it is a workshop “to spark creative thinking.”
“In this class we want to look inside our tool box and see where we fit in, and find out if we love working in teams and want to be part of a big salon or if we are self-motivated and driven would be happier as an independent,” Valdez says. “I want to empower by sharing my experience as an intern, an employed stylist and also my success as an independent stylist in editorial and entrepreneurship. This success comes out of key behaviors, attitude and love of the craft.”
- Habit of being a student – It starts at school and why you need to love our foundation. Learning to perfect rather than to master in the beginning is a key behavior we pick up at school and carry for the rest of our career.
- Habit of Playing Nice – A habit of learning that we don’t have to always compete but rather inspire each other. How choosing a work environment that nurtures a healthy nice culture can help you achieve bigger dreams and create a community around your craft.
- Habit of living your brand– “Your vibe attracts your tribe.” It’s about creating your best self and living to that standard. Sharing with peers and clients your brand and values will create a unique stamp on your work behind the chair and behind the scenes.

About Salons by JC: In 1998, Jack Griffey and Cecil Miller began their journey to transform the beauty industry one salon suite at a time. Like most young entrepreneurs, they started out with a big idea, but had to learn how to start and run a business from scratch. After much perseverance and hard work, one year later, they opened Salons by JC in Dallas, TX, welcoming beauty and wellness specialists who were ready to break free from the traditional salon model. The company has since moved its headquarters from Dallas to San Antonio, where it continues to grow through franchising. Today, Salons by JC has over 87 locations in 24 states and Canada.
