Salon Owners and Managers, this is a conversation you do not want to miss!  Have you ever wondered, what is on the mind of a cosmetology student? What type of salon are they looking for, What are their fears, and What do they want for their career? If you said Yes to any of these questions, you're not alone.

There are many myths about why this is so difficult. Cynical owners and managers say things like, "New hairstylists just don't want to work hard" or "people are less loyal than they used to be".  Reasons like this could not be further from the truth.  In this conversation, Keune Academy In In this Throwback episode Cosmetology Students ask John and Chris the questions that are currently on their minds.

This Throwback was a part of a series of interviews where John and Chris share insight and experience on must-have skills of all levels of salon teams.  The harsh truth is, most salons can't grow past a certain point because the team and leaders do not develop skills that are necessary but uncomfortable. So they are never able to communicate and follow through on tuff situations and important conversations. This can lead to frustration on all parts of a team.  In this episode, John Palmieri and Chris Sulimay discuss action steps to hold yourself and your salon team accountable to each other. In turn, this keeps the salon running like a well-oiled machine and gives the salon client the experience they deserve.
