If you are an ABCH member, you may attend the Summit for $350. This pricing makes the Energizing Summit very affordable. Even the hotel is joining in on our 18th anniversary celebration by reducing the room rates to $144 per night. Great prices for such a fine hotel.

These classes utilize live bleach and haircolor, and you take the mannequin home with you at the conclusion of the class.
