I wasn’t in Mineappolis to shop, I was there to learn (and audition.)

September 19, 2007

This event was traing and testing on Brocato products. There was a written test (scores were not available immediately, so I have no idea how I did.) and a performance demo. The worst part about giving a demo to other educators is that they don’t have the same questions as one would encounter with a regular audience. It’s a bit like preaching to the choir.

One of the amazing things I can say about this company is that Sam Brocato is passionately involved in every facet of the company. He spent three days with us, demoing cuts and long hair dressing, and making sure we were prepared to be informed, excited ambassadors of his product. In an age when professional salon product labels are owned by giant corporations like Proctor & Gamble and Estee Lauder, Brocato is led by one man. He’s a real guy. A hairdresser from po-dunk Louisiana (I can say that because I once lived there, too) who became a world famous hairdresser. He was even inducted into the British Hairdressing Hall of Fame! And as well as he has done in his career, he still makes time to connect with the people who work for him. I think that’s pretty cool.
