Orlando Premiere 2012 with Melissa Johnson

No need to wonder what your going to see at Orlando Premiere this year. We have a sneak preview of Melissa Johnson’s classes!
Melissa’s passion for the industry and eagerness to share knowledge with fellow salon professionals shows in the classes she facilitates. Constantly striving to grow her own learning experiences and raise the bar of the professional salon community, Melissa prides herself on working with stylists in new and innovative ways.
We asked Melissa…
What will you be teachining in Orlando this year?
MJ: I will be sharing about 5 different techniques in the demo class and in the hands on class doing a different variation of crescent panels that addresses a guest with a fringe, raylighting, and moonlighting.  Moonlighting is a technique that is inspired from switchback sets, it is a great technique for dealing with long hair and a fresh way to get an ombre feel.
As I am super excited about all of these techniques because they are all real-salon techs for real salon guests!
What’s your favorite product club tool?
MJ: Really do I only get one?  The great grips whisk.  I love mixing my color with it, it makes the color creamy and evenly mixed, plus my brushes never get “squidshy”
I am also crazy about the Jaws clips.  I only need one to hold up even massive amounts of hair!
What’s your favorite technique for Summer 2012 hair color?
MJ: The technique I am using alot this summer is both mini panels and moonlighting- Both are great ways to get an impact without 300 foils and are easy for guests to maintain!
