    During the presentation, Zachary demonstrated hot tools/equipment that would help students learn about the current supplies used and help them be industry prepared. Zachary also demonstrated various skills and tips for using the different tools.  After the demonstration, students were able to practice on each other and purchase the tools at a discounted price.

    Being exposed to this program gave the student an opportunity to not only purchases tools, but to become a life time member of the organization simply signing up online. Once a member they also get a lifetime warrenty on the tools purchased as well as education webinars and more. 

    The students were motivated by this hands-on experience with a professional and salon owner from their field. They expressed how much FUN they had learning and keeping up with industry trends.
