Did they make you personally do this? Why would they make her purchase flat irons if she has them?
She does take monthly classes and travels all over the country.
My hairdresser just paid $500 to get trained to use iStraight and for their products and she had been doing OptiSmooth for years before that.
She owns her salon and they travel all over the country. She doesn't just go herself..she brings her staff with her to be trained.
I think $995 is unreasonable in her situation.
If S.L.I. came out and trained her to do iStraight, certainly this is easier than iStraight and she should be able to manage to flat iron.
Here are her credentials:
I've been a part of this industry for 8 years. I purchased (salon name)in August 2004. Throughout the years I've attended several educational classes: Whal Clipper Cutting, Andis Clipper Cutting, Tigi Texture Cutting, Satin Smooth Waxing, J. Beverly Hills Signature Shaping, Paul Mitchell Color 101- Blonding - Updo - Art of Block Color and Advanced Matrix classes in San Fransisco, California. In Feburary of 2006, I attended the Juan Juan Hair Design Acedemy and successfully completed the course of Advanced Hair Design, O-val Collection. Held at the J Beverly Hills Academy, Beverly Hills, California. It was an incredible experience! Celebrity hair stylists from Beverly Hills and Paris whom I was very honored to work side by side with, taught this class. In July of 2006, I attended the 3-day Regional Bootcamp training for Euphora International. I am currently a Regional Trainer for Euphora international! I am looking forward to my next journey of educational classes. I try to attend at least one class a month, in order to keep up with the latest trends, so that I am able to give my customers the most options with their hair needs. My latest education includes an October 2006 razor cutting class, as well as in November 2006, a long hair dressing for updos, and Eufora International Global Connection two day seminar in California; where i learned fun new techniques and ideas.
My problem is I'm going away in a few weeks and now my hair has to look like hell because all of sudden there are some people who can get this at their house and some people who have to now pay $1000?
In all fairness then I'll suggest she pulls back on people with the product and makes them be certified to use it for all future purchases and charges the $1000 flat fee as well.
