Salon Suites (Colonnade) - Birmingham, AL

Students observe the daily operations of a busy stylist shop. They learn that being an independent stylist is more than just cutting and coloring hair. Other than being a creative and skilled artist, there is equipment that must be maintained in top working condition, products must be stocked and marketed in an appealing presentation, keep an ever changing appointment calendar, promoting their services as well as themselves to the customers, and keep the area tidy and clean to meet health department regulations. Students perform entry level tasks such as maintaining the styling area, stocking product inventory, and prepping for the next appointment by replenishing supplies of products, towels, smocks, and sweeping.

Salon Suites features two stylists that work with our program:Christina Durham and Raemi Heard. Christina is a Master Stylist that specializes in color.
