At Salon Skanda we know that education is the single most important thing we can do for ourselves – and our guests. Education and team-based services are the cornerstones of the Salon Skanda culture. We have an extensive and comprehensive skill certification program that teaches newly licensed and/or seasoned stylists so that the inspiration, passion and teamwork are exemplary on our team. Our curriculum combines the best team practices, (color?) theories, and hands-on experience, creating a fun and innovative learning environment. We stay inspired by industry legends, the latest trends, and proven techniques to ensure all on our team are empowered to deliver exceptional results.
Our partnership with Goldwell serves as the foundation of our coloring program. We even have a Goldwell Technical Artist on the team. The Salon Skanda color program for entry-level stylists averages about 20 weeks in length including color theory, formulations, and foundational techniques coupled with modern creative color applications. Advanced application methods – as well as color canvas changes and corrective color formulation – are part of the more advanced skillsets and a are taught at a more individual pace. Furthermore, Salon Skanda is a HeadMapping™ salon ensuring precision-based color each time. Our HeadMapping™ system allows for consistent results every guest visit and truly promotes our team based servicing culture.
