Shear Savvy Secrets and Strategies for Successful Salon Apprenticeships is teaching salon’s across the country how to become a school of cosmetology and train apprentices right in their own salon so apprentices can become licensed in the beauty industry. This easy-to-follow, how-to guide takes salon industry professionals through an apprenticeship in six simple steps. The book provides detailed instruction on how to start and maintain a successful program with additional documents and resources, such as contracts and meeting agendas on a comprehensive CD.

When the author, Lori Halloway, wanted to start a state-approved apprenticeship in her own salon, she found no resources available to help. After seven years of running apprenticeships in her salon and developing resources to help the program run smoothly, she decided to turn all her knowledge and experience into one resource for other professionals to benefit from. “Most salon owners don’t realize this kind of program is an option and I hope to inspire them to take the success of their business into their own hands,” says Halloway.
