Kara Kalamatas from Keune Hair Cosmetics is Premier Beauty’s May Spotlighted Educator!
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME AN EDUCATOR?
Breaking down basic information can sound simplistic to anyone. But a lot of times it can be overcomplicated and manipulated. A former educator earlier on in my career watched me coach someone through a color correction and she said I should consider educating.
TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR SALON!
Blush Salon and Spa is an incredibly talented yet fast paced environment. Being supportive of each other is so important and that stems from our leaders. We constantly encourage one another in our everyday lives and aren't afraid to reach out for help. Continuous education is also at the forefront of what we do which keeps us current and up to date on what's trending now. IG: @blushsalon_spa
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR BEST PRACTICES FOR RETAILING TO YOUR CUSTOMERS?
Talking about retail immediately in the consultation/appointment and treating it like a conversation. Keep it simple for them too. Give them a good handful of products (3-5) to take home and instruct quick tips and tricks to help them through.
ANY HOBBIES? OR ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE OF DOING HAIR?
I love to cook! I find it incredibly therapeutic, and I love to be creative with it too.
