Chris Baran Workshop at RIO Hair Studio

Chris Baran Workshop at RIO Hair Studio in Jacksonville Beach, Florida

IMG_0674Chris Baran taught our hair stylists so many amazing things! From tips and tricks about how to better brush, part, cut and curl to improving out technique, Chris gave us new skills to make us all better stylists. Every single person in the room learned something new in class that we could use as soon as our clients took a seat in the chair.
By making us take a look at the bigger picture, the first part of class was about how we could achieve our goals. Chris made us examine who we are as hair Chris Baran at RIO Hair Studio 4stylists, who we want to become and how to make that happen.

We always think of RIO as a family and learning together cemented that. Chris made sure this was a hands-on, interactive experience for everyone. Throughout class we were bouncing ideas off each other, explaining and re-explaining new techniques to each other as well as cheering each other on.

It was so important for RIO Hair Studio to host this class. We believe that one of the major factors for the studio’s success is owner Misty’s emphasis on continuing education for each and every stylist. This focus on professionalism ensures that each stylist is well-trained, well-certified, and always up to date on the latest styles, procedures and processes. This is how we are equipped to provide the best service to clients – we can assure each client will receive the best advice about precision cuts, the most useful products, and the appropriate treatments and techniques for their hair to keep it healthy and strong.

We cannot thank Chris enough for sharing his wisdom, skills and humor with us!
