When hairdressers share with each other generously, we shape and influence our future. These days many of us are doing this through social media, yet the value of face-to-face connection and live education in our digital world cannot be understated. We wanted to provide a platform for educators from diverse backgrounds to come together and share generously, without having to sell or promote anything. The Hairbrained Teach In features technical, in-depth demonstrations and powerful examples of the magic that happens when we put passion before promotion and celebrate education. This July, the Hairbrained Teach In returns to PBA Beauty Week with an incredible lineup of international talent, sharing the language of hairdressing. New for 2016, attendees will have the option to join one of our amazing educators for an in-depth, hands-on workshop at the conclusion of the Teach In.
