WHERE: • Starting in 2019, courses will be held at the Henkel #AcademyofHair in Culver City, California • Classes off ered at SalonCentric and State Beauty Supply/ RDA Pro Mart stores around the country • Free in-salon training, available by meeting quarterly purchase requirements through local distributors HOW: • Information at, the professionals-only website • Dates, times and locations for in-store classes on the SalonCentric app, or by contacting local state/RDA stores NAME Tim "Bo" Mack (@timboplease) TRAINING Coastal Bend College in Beeville, Texas JOURNEY I fi rst approached a Pravana sales team member during a salon visit, then submitted my audition video, portfolio and letters of recommendation. After months of waiting, I got my offi cial invitation to participate in training. The process was intense, but I've never stopped working hard. Last year I had the honor of being named the 2017 Educator of the Year. ROLE By helping to create courses for each season, I get to stand on a huge platform and share my love of education and hair. TOP CHALLENGE Accepting challenges as discoveries, rather than failures. FAVORITE COURSE Introduction to ChromaSilk. Recently licensed grads who want to deep-dive into color theory gain in-depth knowledge of color formulation scenarios plus our bestselling Chroma line.

We excel in various ways, so it's important to adjust my help so that all in class feel lifted. FAVORITE COURSE Mastering ChromaSilk. Advanced color theory is important so that stylists can take skills to the next level. NAME Meg B. White (@megbwhitesalon) TRAINING Booker Institute-Cosmetology in Holland, Michigan JOURNEY I've wanted to be in beauty since I learned how to braid my horses' hair at age 11. I stalked Pravana educators at shows until they fi nally called me about a position in the Atlanta market. ROLE I get to think outside the box and be creative when it comes to in-salon education. Interacting with our full global team during trainings is inspiring. TOP CHALLENGE Conceptualizing an effective mentorship program for new educators, and helping them fi nd their unique voice at Pravana. FAVORITE COURSE Blonding. Regardless of the tress trend you wish to achieve, it typically starts with lightening hair in a healthy, effi cient matter. If strands get damaged, results aren't worth it. Need to Know
