color code 1
Liz, Cara, & Allie attended a Davines color class at The Space this month, known as Color Code I, the class went over the basic knowledge that every stylist should have about the entire Davines color line.
The stylists who attended the class were able to participate in a hands-on training session with the Davines color line. They split off into groups and were able to experiment with formulating and applying color on live models.
Allie particularly enjoyed the opportunity to formulate and apply what she had observed in the class on a live model and see her own end results.
“I learned more details about contributing colors and the natural contributing color that is in the hair. Knowing that opened my eyes to what Davines colors come from and what their base colors begin at.” - Liz
airbrush PRO makeup workshop
Liz, Holly, and Amilee were in attendance for the GENEVA Airbrush PRO Makeup Workshop hosted by GENEVA Master Makeup Artist Ashley Renee Salazar in our studio this month. The workshop focused on airbrush makeup artistry techniques used to create the perfect look for any special occasion.
The workshop covered full application of foundation, contouring, blush application and more, leaving any client with a Hi-Def finish.
“Great! The hands on portion was really helpful – the dots and dashes on paper were a great warm-up for applying them on real people. Thanks Ashley!”
"The class was very helpful in learning new airbrush techniques. The trigger control tips were great in learning how to support and control the air brush gun.”
america's beauty show: chicago
The entire GENEVA team headed to the Windy City to attend America's Beauty Show.
The annual trade show included multiple vendor booths, live haircutting & coloring demonstrations, as well as hands on classes over various techniques.
Holly's favorite look from the show was a light lavender cut with straight across bangs. Her favorite moment of the show was sighting Tabatha Coffey and trying to say hello. Holly also claims that she yelled "I'm taking over!"
Liz says “Attending the show was definitely inspiring. It is a very cool environment to learn, take classes, purchase awesome goodies, and get inspired! Standing back and observing all of the product lines and hair guru’s take stage was pretty awesome.”
