Artizen Director of Education, Jean Sweet, offers personalized hairdressing and finishing classes. Jean is available for consultations, either by phone or in person, to discuss a plan to inspire, educate and motivate salon stylists to develop personal hair styling skills. Stylists who are confident in their hairdressing and sales skills maintain satisfied, loyal clients and receive increased referrals.

My goal is to inspire professionals to be creative, just like I’ve inspired myself over the years by taking the creative career path that I have traveled. Much of my creative inspiration comes from culture and history. I research cultural aspects of how hairstyle artistry came about in different eras and places and study how hair and fashion are influenced.”

To schedule a consultation with Jean, call 847-676-1950 or email  [email protected]. During the consultation, Jean will ask questions and listen to salon owners, managers and hairstylists about needs, dreams and goals, in order to suggest a plan for inspirational education.
