Puyallup Stylists Receive Certification

Three Pepper's Salon stylists have passed rigorous testing by the American Board of Certified Haircolorists (ABCH). The stylists, Kati Blische, Kelsie Aho, and Amber Dayton, join five other Pepper's Salon team members who hold the industry certification.

The three stylists passed the written and performance exams, held September 8 in Seattle. The Seattle exam was one of eight testing opportunities throughout the country offered this year, and 15 stylists participated in the exam.

A Board Certified Haircolorist is a stylist who has passed a stringent test developed over the past five years by a committee of their peers. The test measures the competence of the applicant's hair coloring skills and proficiency. As Board Certified Haircolorists, Blische, Aho, and Dayton have shared some of the techniques learned through the study process with the rest of the Pepper's Salon team.

"When scoring the exams, the American Board of Certified Haircolorists exam team looks for perfection, and the Pepper's Salon team comes closest to achieving that standard," explained Andre Nizetich, Master Haircolorist and President of the American Board of Certified Haircolorists.

"Our team values continuing education, and collectively we believe that receiving current and innovative training allows us to provide the highest level of customer service possible. We're proud that of the 38 Board Certified Haircolorists in the state, eight are Pepper's Salon team members. This allows us to truly provide incredible hair color results," explained Pepper's Salon Owner Sally Brower.

The American Board of Certified Haircolorists is dedicated to the development of standardized criteria in certification, promoting credibility and consistency within the industry.
