Empowering You Takes the Lone Star State
June 13, 2019
You could hear the beat of the music and cheers of the attendees as Shawn and Doug kicked off the Empowering You workshop this past Monday in the Lone Star State. The energy was electrifying and could be felt throughout The Salon Professional Academy San Antonio as you walked down the hallway and entered the classroom.
Redken Artists and Educators Shawn Stearns and Doug Treadway led the class through an engaging educational workshop that discussed social media best practices, retailing, and business building skills.
Stacey Avery, owner of Hair by Stacey Avery located within the Salons by JC Westwood location encouraged all suite owners to attend this workshop. “This class will assist them in looking at social media and business in a new way. I was pleased to learn a few new options when presenting retail to my clients.” The basis of the Empowering You workshops are to bring new ideas on how to brand your business, grow your clientele, and expand your business entrepreneurial knowledge as a small business owner.
Salons by JC worked closely with State RDA to create the perfect intimate setting for this workshop. This creates a unique synergy between the suite owners and the presenters creating an interactive atmosphere where all questions are welcomed. Salons Business Coach, Jo-Lynn Greenman loved the engagement at this workshop. “It was awesome to see all of the attendees so actively participating. There were so many great questions that were asked and some really insightful answers that were given by the Redken educators. I truly believe all of our suite owners can benefit from these classes”.
The San Antonio workshop was the first Texas stop for the Empowering You workshop. We are currently looking at bringing the event to the Austin, Dallas, and Houston area by end of 2019 and early 2020 in collaboration with State RDA. The Salon Professional Academy San Antonio was extremely excited to host this event for Salons by JC. We look forward to future events where we will be able to collaborate with them. Be on the lookout for our Empowering You educational workshop to stop in your market. Our next events will be in Atlanta on July 1st and San Francisco on July 15th.

ABOUT Salons by JC
In 1997, 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, Texas in 1998, 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 nearly 100 locations in 26 states and Canada and are looking to develop of 200 over the next several years. For more information, visitor .
