What People Are Saying:

This is an excellent course because if you are very passionate & you want to be the best Stylist & grow and see beautiful hair color on your clients, then you should take this course; not only is it going to motivate you and make you feel reassured in what you're doing & why you're formulating something, it's going to give you confidence & my clients love to see that I am doing continuous education because hair's constantly changing and you can never know it all. I felt very honored to have learned from someone with the knowledge & Sue has done it all and done something I want to do & dream of doing and can help me get there. I questioned whether this is possible, but taking this course has made me realize it is possible, so why not learn from the best & take this course if you're committed to your Artistry? If you want to be the best and wake up happy without stress, live an extraordinary life & make good money, this is the course for you.

I highly recommend this course to all Stylists, regardless of their level. There is a lot of information, but it's fast-paced and flows easily, it's easy to learn Education. Even for seasoned stylists, even if they have been doing hair for many years & know what they are doing, mainly from trial & error, when it goes wrong, then that's when it's hard to fix it, especially if you don't know the WHY'S this is an excellent course for learning hair color correctly for the first time & tells you the WHY'S. I want to add that it is a fantastic privilege & honor to be part of the MCS. There are many highly educated people, but very few are fun & easy to talk to & I love the Facebook Members group with like-minded Stylists.
