- Celebrate Beauty in Iowa 2013 – Professional Competition Winner
Heather Mohr – It was so exciting and fun being a competitor in the professional
Affiliate #16 “Mane Event” competitiion. I was so happy to win 1st place. I
really encourage more professional stylists to enter the
competition next year. Competing makes you a better stylist
and it’s great for your business too. When people and clients
know you’ve participated in competition, it builds trust and
respect in your abilities. I am so glad
CBI has brought a
Professional competition to State convention. I look forward
to it every year.
- ICE Design Team 2013 – “The Trifecta Collection” is the trend this team of 3 ICE
members presented at “Celebrate in Beauty 2013” plus various other
con-ed classes across the state. The collection consisted of haircuts
(Women & Men), haircolor,make-up and nails.
Jean Boss #7 - The Trifecta Collection for 2013 has been a great experience as a
designer and teacher. Promoting
CBI, ICE and the Team has been
such an honor. Thank you ICE for having Melanie, Holly and
myself as the Design Team.
Melanie Brons #16 – Being a part of the design team is always hard work, but
ultimately is a very fun and rewarding experience. The most
challenging part of this design team was coming up with the theme of
where our ideas were coming from/going to. Once we established the
name of “Trifecta Collection”, things came together very nicely. We
would bounce ideas back and forth and come up with solutions and
suggestions. The rewards of being on the design team come when
other stylists share with me how they have used the look we created
on a client, as well as the fun times and memories made with Jean and
Holly. Thanks to both of you for all your help and hard work for the
CBI as well as the industry.
Holly Schippers #6 -
