Day 1 (11:00 - 12:30) Closed
Day 2 (3:30 - 5:00)

Phase Two, Class Two

Have you tried to make color swatches?! Do your swatches get wimpy after you shampoo out the color? Do you know the importance of Stages of Lightening? Can you distinguish between gold and pale gold or yellow and pale yellow? Does it really take four hours to reach a pale yellow? These questions can be answered by attending this hands-on demonstration of Swatch Preparation for the ABCH Performance Exam. Toni will throw in a few "tips" of her own to help you achieve sensational swatches not just for the ABCH Performance Exam but for your own experiments with your own color! Step by Step hand outs will be included for the participant.

Toni Mondragon owner of The Colourdragon Enterprises, A Studio Salon in Denver CO taught hair color for various color manufacturers throughout the years but found her niche when she was introduced to the philosophy of non-product specific education presented by the American Board of Certified Haircolorists. Toni has been board certified since 1998 and became an Evaluator for the board since 2000. Among her accomplishments, Toni has created a study program that works in conjunction with the ABCH Certification Exam and enjoys a 100% pass rate among the candidates she has mentored. I love to share my knowledge with professionals in our industry and one of the best platforms for this is the ABCH ENERGIZING SUMMIT.
