The first Empowering You event of 2019 was held just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina at The Pinnacle Institute of Cosmetology last week, boasting over 50 attendees from our North Carolina locations. SalonCentric and Redken partnered with Salons by JC to bring a wealth of knowledge to the suite owners, concierges, and franchisees in attendance. Subjects discussed at the workshop were social media marketing best practices, how to give yourself a $20,000 raise without changing your prices, and how to pay your rent with retail.
“This class was awesome! We had a lot of takeaways on how to increase our income behind the chair, including how to sell retail,” said Missy Armentrout from Salons by JC High Point. “One of the insights that stood out to me was how important it is to be engaged and stay engaged with posting and responding to comments.”
In addition to great education and fantastic product goody bags, the Redken folks made the day engaging and fun with interactive activities, upbeat music and relatable stories from their experiences in the industry. Let’s face it, in the beauty industry we’ve seen it all, and it feels good to be reminded that we’re all in this together whether we’ve been doing it for 3 years or 30 years.
Jennifer Nealy of Hair Favor at Salons by JC Greensboro has been in the business for over 25 years and found herself very engaged in the class. “I really loved this class today! It gave me lots of insight on social media marketing and new ways to increase my finances which is always a plus. I learned some really nice styling tips too, so it was all around a great day. I’m really thankful for y’all putting on this class and I hope to attend more!”
Our next Empowering You class will be in Minneapolis, MN in April. It will be the first time Matrix is providing the education for us. The same topics will be covered but in a new way. We can’t wait to see what they will bring to the table. We look forward to seeing you there!
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, visit salonsbyjc.com or salons
