I was honored to speak in Los Angeles at this year’s ABCH Energizing Summit the weekend of June 9th.  This conference is sponsored by the American Board of Certified Haircolorists (ABCH).   If you have never attended an Energizing Summit give it a try next year.  You are in for a real educational experience. The American Board of Certified Haircolorists goes to the extreme to make this event an unforgettable experience. Each year they bring an array of talented educators. The big difference in this conference is that the educators who are successful in doing what they teach, as opposed to teaching a class scripted by a manufacturer. There are no manufacturers represented.  It is all about the art of hair color, not “what our product can do.”
This is a one of a kind seminar produced completely by haircolorists. I think one of the biggest benefits of attending the Energizing Summit is the opportunity to rub elbows with other haircolorists and share information, along with some business knowledge (hence me being there).
The classes are small so you can ask lots of questions and interact with the educators. In talking to Andre Nizetich, the ABCH president, he told me that “It is important educators understand the challenges haircolorists are faced with. We offer a variety of haircolor subjects so you can really learn. Some classes are creative in nature while others are more technical. We even have business classes that are centered on hair coloring. You have the opportunity to participate in hands on classes and have the opportunity to work with a variety of haircolors and bleaches."
There were 600 in attendance this year.  All true hair color professionals.  If you want to advance in hair color don’t miss this program next year.
