Social Media:

Since joining the Content Kweens Alumni with Ben Lifton, we have received great feedback on the look and feel of our social media. 

Although, the very basics of picture taking for social media is covered on the 'Vivid Colour Coaching For Beginners' and 'Balayage Basics for Newbies', it's highly recommended that for full salon social media training, students should contact Ben Lifton at Content Kweens


Are you a hairdresser who has always shy-ed away from bright colour creations?
Perhaps you're worried about managing client expectations or would like to learn some simple application techniques?

This is the stuff they don't teach you at college, but perhaps one of the skills you were keen and excited to learn!

Vivid Colour Coaching for Beginners' will go right from the beginning, to help you nail the perfect consultation, manage expectations, pick the best colours for your client and advise on the best aftercare. 

We'll even go over a few tips on taking photos for social media. (For full salon related social media training, we recommend joining Content Kweens Bootcamp with Ben Lifton).

Take home products will be included with this course.
