Cosmetologists Chicago (CC) featured Wella Creative Director Fabio Sementilli, TrendVision winner Shirley Gordon and Brenton Lee and Kathryn Hornick, members of Team I.C.A.N. at its annual holiday educational event.
Cosmetologists Chicago has been hosting monthly educational events throughout 2013. Known as First Mondays, they pay homage the CC tradition of educating salon professionals for more than 100 years.
The real stars of the December educational even were stunning interpretations by Lee and Hornick of Wella’s “Echo” and “Allegra” trends, and Gordon of the “Fusion” trend from the 2013 Wella International Trend Vision Collection, aptly entitled this year as “The Sound of Color”.
Then, in the spirit of seasonal giving, Cosmetologists Chicago President Joseph Cartagena announced that all proceeds from the event would go to Cosmetologists Chicago’s Hurricane Assistance Fund to help salons and stylists affected by Hurricane Sandy. Donations from the evening totaled more than $8,000. Anyone still wishing to donate can go to AmericasBeautyShow.com to contribute.
Fortunately we can look forward to many more such gatherings, as Cosmetologists Chicago will continue to host monthly educational events throughout 2013! Happy New Year!
