Elements Salon & Wellness Spa team members receive advanced training

Elements Salon & Wellness Spa Master Stylist Trisha Heinold and Senior Apprentice Jacob Holmer attended a two-day ABC Vidal Sassoon class in Seattle.

The advanced training was hosted by Vidal Sassoon March 27-28 and was designed to showcase and inspire the creative application of fundamental hair cutting techniques. As part of the training, each attending stylist was allowed the time and space to perfect their technical skills to ensure the techniques were mastered. Both Heinold and Holmer graduated from the two-day course with a Vidal Sassoon Academy Diploma.

As part of the training, a thorough understanding of face shape and hair texture was incorporated to allow Heinold and Holmer to personalize each cut to the needs, personality and features of the client. Upon return to Wenatchee, Heinold and Holmer began training the rest of the Elements Salon & Wellness Spa team on the techniques learned, and incorporating the enhanced analysis and creativity with clients.

“Learning cutting techniques from Vidal Sassoon provided an incredibly rewarding experience that boosted our creativity and skills, while giving us the techniques to really provide a flattering hair cut for clients that works with their natural face shape, hair texture and personality. This training has allowed us to truly personalize each cut,” explained Heinold.
