Monique McMahon and QUE Academy unveiled their 4-Step Colour Method in a workshop in Melbourne this week, inviting hair legends Frank Apostolopoulos and Carl Keely along to share their insights in a Q and A, and facilitating a look and learn, consultation class and practical workshop on live models to the packed out class. Safe to say, it was a big day.
“Today I really wanted to share the 4-Step Colour Method that I have been implementing for a few years now,” Monique said. “This method will give every salon and colour bar the strength to improve their turnover and give their clients 100 per cent satisfaction every time. The class is perfect for all levels and ideal for business owners who want to elevate their colour business, increase their turnover and create a language and culture within their team environment to strengthen colour.”
Monique conducted the class alongside QUE Academy creative director Taylah Jones, offering a 360 approach to colour to students that ranged from colourists, to salon owners and freelances. The initial class showed off the academy’s signature colour looks, with practical insights then taken on by the students themselves. The major skills shown included foiling through the mid section of the hair, hand painting and free style colour around the hair line and front sections.
Frank and Carl were an obvious highlight, as their intimate Q and A delved into topics of business success and growth, being a boss and salon owner, team building and creating a positive team culture, competition tips and building a brand.
“We do an events style education platform, which includes guest speakers. Carl has been amazing to me in the past when I’ve done his education courses on management and business so I anted to bring him in and share his knowledge,” Monique said. “I also love what Frank has done with By Frank, he needed to come today and share his passion for the industry and his talent.”
After this segment, and lunch, it was up to the ambitious attendees to try their hand at these important and relevant salon skills.
“These are simple, quick techniques that have incredible results with ‘less’ colour. The method is designed to have complete relevance when doing colour for today’s clients – in a timely manner, with 100 per cent satisfaction,” Monique said. “The 4-Step Colour Method really takes the guesswork out of all colour service, saves you money, increases revenue in the long time and drives customer retention.”
