Every summer, the hair industry slows down a bit, with everyone spending more time outside, traveling, and with their families. With this slight decrease in clientele, a good amount of extension clients opt for either less hair or to take out their hair out completely for boating, swimming, and surfing when it gets hot out, making it the perfect time to take full advantage of the break and prepare for the insanity of fall and winter!
While doing less extensions, founder and CEO Lacy Gadegaard-West has been keeping herself busy with traveling with family, attending trade shows, and working on fine tuning some top secret projects! We can’t necessarily spill all the details quiiiite yet, but we can tell you that some BIG changes are coming to Laced!
Take our word for it… There’s no better time than NOW to take the leap and develop the skill you’ve had your eye on! With the extra time in your schedule this summer season, there’s a perfect spot open to practice and perfect a new service (or two) to prepare you to KILL IT this fall and bring in your year end income goal!
That being said, we have recommendations for your next education venture based on where you’re at in your career
For the trailblazers…
Keratin extensions were Lacy's very first love. It’s no secret that hair services come and go popularity wise, but her keratin clients have been solid throughout the 20 years she's been offering this service, regardless of where they needed to travel or how far out they needed to book. Trust us - keratin clients get HOOKED. Considering how similar the strategy and placement of keratin is to I-tip, it only made sense to offer 2 for 1 and double certify stylists looking to enter the world of individual extensions! If you’re ready to offer your clients unmatched levels of blend and movement, and customize every aspect of their install, Keratin & I-Tip 101 is for YOU! Lacy will be teaching this course at the end of August at our Salt Lake City salon!
For the beginner babes…
Beaded Weft 101 is the PERFECT introduction into the extension world! These trainings are intended for stylists of all levels of extension experience, so even if you’ve never touched a weft before, this class is for you! We have Beaded Weft 101 certifications coming up in Salt Lake City, Philadelphia, Toronto, Phoenix, Grand Rapids, Portland, Syracuse, Fort Wayne, and Raleigh.
For weft lovers…
InterLACED Weft 201 is for the stylists who’ve got beaded wefts under their belt, but are ready to master another installation technique! Every flip-up you see on social media has a method behind the madness, and perfecting this installation requires extreme attention to detail and mastery of wefts, so previous beaded weft certification is a prerequisite to this course. For those who are ready to take the plunge, we have InterLACED classes coming up in Houston and Greensboro!
Whether you’re taking advantage of your free time to further your career or just taking the time for some hard earned rest, here’s to summer 2022!
