Everything you need to know about creative and wearable colour is about to come at you in three separate and must-attend workshops, courtesy of Que Academy and Monique McMahon. The Sydney based workshops, titled the Colour Series Program, are designed to teach and inspire, with full-day classes that run the gamut of colour techniques.
“Expect 360 degree learning that touches on all elements of colour – from trending techniques, the latest colour applications and innovations, through to social media strategy! Our colour language will put a price on your techniques to elevate your team and your sales,” Monique said, explaining that the classes will take on a look and learn format with a bonus, intimate Q and A segment with industry experts. “Develop your business know how and elevate your relationship with existing clientele and future clients. Colour is key to any salon business, and inspiring your team through creative learning makes all the difference.”
The classes will encourage creativity with students sharing their work on social media for the chance to win prizes from esteemed brands such as Dyson, Christophe Robin and EIMI.
The first class will be Foil Like A Boss, to take place on July 29, whereby students will learn ‘new-classic’ techniques and speedy skills that save salon time, promote hair health and satisfy clients, with guest educators Paloma Garcia and Jenae Hinwood.
The next class will be Hair Painting on August 19, showing how to create maximum impact with Que Academy’s signature sectioning and placement techniques. These French-style techniques will be taught in a range of paint powder and developers, with students taught to pick the hero product and apply it with confidence, with the help of guest educator Edwards and Co.’s Jaye Edwards.
Freestyle Colour is taking place on September 23, championing the academy’s custom curated technique for Instagram-worthy hair (no filter required). The class will teach ‘colour without colour’ in salon time limits.
“The main thing we want to do is raise the bar in the industry,” Monique said. “If we can raise our bar across the board within the industry; our value is there. We can pay our staff more, we can raise our prices, it really comes down to that. I love to share my knowledge with my team, and with others. Education and learning is at the forefront of our industry, and it’s our responsibility to educating everyone in the industry to reach their best potential in order to raise the bar across the board. We’ve seen salons from all areas raise their prices after being to our workshops as they’re doing better work; they’ve changed their menu boards to make them more current, they implemented new services, they’re working to better time schedules.”
