As I reflect back on the last four years – I sit still and wonder – “How did I land in this remarkable industry called beauty?” And think, “Wow, I am grateful!” In our Cool Beauty Family, we have hundreds of salons and thousands of stylists changing the lives of people every 30-45 minutes of every day. The fact that we effect that much positive change into the world is powerful and motivating!
This first-ever edition of our Cool Beauty Blog (Empower Point) brings an enormous sense of gratitude towards our Cool Beauty Salon Family. As we move into our sixth year of serving salons, we look forward to providing you world-class education, world-class artists, and world-class business consulting! In your day-to day operations we are here for you. To inspire. To challenge. To lift.
