On October 1st and 2nd, Salons by JC hosted its first virtual conference especially crafted for our salon professionals. Through our partnership with SalonCentric, we were able to secure our host for the event, Michael Cole. Michael has over 30 years in the beauty industry as a stylist, manager, multiple salon owner, and executive chain director. Michael wrote a book entitled, “A Little Off the Top” which has helped over a million salon professionals breakthrough to a more prosperous and purposeful career.
The conference spanned over 2 days and roughly 6 hours in total and had over 280 franchise owners, concierges, and salon professionals register for this free event. It also featured Salons by JC Salon Business Coach Mona Echard as a guest host. The conference also had special guests, Christina Payton, owner of The House of Blondes located inside of Salons by JC Naples. Christina is also our 2019 Suite Owner of the Year. Salons by JC Baybrook Mall Concierge, Brenda Olivarez, who worked with Michael at one point in her career.
During the conference the main topic centered around igniting the passion of each person who participated. Topics of discussion ranged from knowing your place in the industry, the importance of a mentor, the six dimensions of wellness, and exploding your pay to name a few. As each topic was discussed, we saw the engagement and energy rise within the participants. “It was great to see so much interest from our Salons by JC community and also having those people stay with us from start to finish for both days”, stated Mona Echard, Salons by JC Salon Business Coach.
As Salons by JC enters its 22nd year of operations, we look forward to bringing our Salons by JC salon suite community the workshops, events, and conferences needed to ensure the enhancement of their business and growth of the brand. We received rave reviews from our conference and are preparing to bring you much more in 2021.
