At Forbici, ongoing education is critical for furthering the skills that continue to make our stylists “next level.” It’s no secret that the beauty industry is constantly evolving and new products are created to meet those changes. With the new trends, clients demand more services, so likewise, stylists need to be on the ready to meet those demands!

We are firmly committed to the ongoing training and education events that supports the advancement of our Forbici family. Top Forbici stylist Kathryn Wereminski, reflects that she “benefitted so much from all of the education she continues to receive while working at Forbici Salon and Spa!” One of her favorite aspects of her training experience has been receiving product updates from the well known brands they use. She never feels like she’s out of touch with what’s new and emerging!

Did you know that Forbici Salon and Spa is a teaching salon that utilizes an associate program from Summit Salon Business Center. The program lasts anywhere from 5-8 months depending on how fast you’re moving through the curriculum. This program was put together to help newly graduated cosmetology students enter into the world of hair with mentoring from senior stylists that are part of our mentorship/education team.

During the mentorship program, stylists are required to attend all “in-salon” education, complete assignments and bring in guest models on specific days. Associates start with one opportunity day a week, bringing in guests of their own. Guests are typically family and friends. Associates also work side by side with mentors assisting guests and learning new techniques. Associates assist with color application and highlights, along with blow-drying and curling techniques. Mentorship training provides confidence building and even greater insights to the guest experience.

We provide education 1-2 times per quarter depending on what the team feels is needed by the stylists of the salon. Education covers cutting skills, color techniques and product knowledge classes. In addition, stylists keep up on current trends through Instagram and Facebook Live platforms.

At Forbici, We are proud to focus on both the satisfaction and advancement of our team. This commitment to making our team feel important, valued, and trusted is the key to ensuring longevity and dependability, and contributing to the long-term satisfaction of the guests that we serve.

Summer fun unfortunately results in post-summer damage! After spending time in the elements: sun, chlorine, salt water and air conditioning your hair may become dull, brassy, dry and brittle.

Come September, dry hair is almost a guarantee because air can't repair itself, we have to put back in what has been stripped over the summer months.

In order to restore your hair color to its pre-summer state, we recommend heading to the salon for a fresh cut, a gloss and a deep conditioning treatment. Remember to use color protecting shampoos and conditioners

“All that UV exposure can create problems for our hair, causing alterations to the protein of the hair strand itself,” A global hair manufacturer, previously told Well+Good. “That’s when you see things like color lightening, and stiffening because your hair becomes more porous.” The UV rays damage the outermost layer of your hair, which leads to broken lengths, split ends, and discoloration. Because of this, it's key to protect your strands every time you step outside. Opt for a heat protectant to stop the damage before it has the chance to start.

Did you know that salt from the ocean crystalizes when it gets inside the pores of your hair? It can also cause the color from your hair dye to oxidize more quickly. First and foremost, the best thing you can do to avoid damage is rinse your hair immediately following your dip.

“Our scalps are inevitably a lot sweatier during the summer months than usual, and it's important to properly remove said sweat to avoid any nasty buildup. While the sweat itself doesn't technically make your hair dirty, if you leave it on your scalp for too long it can mix with bacteria and fungus, which can lead to a few issues you probably don't wanna have to deal with. To make sure you're getting a proper cleaning every time you lather and rinse, opt for a clarifying shampoo, recommended by our stylists, which will remove sweat, regulate excess sebum, eliminate dandruff, and calm itchiness.”

Even those who take excellent care of their hair sometimes need a boost. Stress, styling and environmental factors can weaken the hair gradually, causing it to look dry and dull, behaving in strange, unruly ways. When hair begins to exhibit signs of stress, there is a quick, easy fix available at Forbici Salon—our new signature Kérastase Fusio-Dose custom hair treatment. It is a system of concentrated care formulas and boosters that your stylist can mix for you personally, resulting in hair that is soft, shiny and incredibly healthy. With this treatment your hair quickly (5 minutes) transforms and restores to its full potential. Be sure and book your back to school appointments now as

Absolutely! Here’s Why: Unique Father's Day gifts: they do exist and we have them!! We are all weary of purchasing that tired old grill set again for that special guy on Father’s Day. Instead, make him feel like the Superstar with a pampering facial! Did you know that facials are a great way to start each season fresh and prepare your skin for the environmental

changes ahead? Summer is just beginning, and Forbici Facials provide immediate results! This treatment includes a complete skin assessment from our Esthetician (a trained Forbici professional who know exactly what to do to make you look your best!)

Our Gentlemen’s facials include custom blended deep cleansing, steam and enzyme exfoliation, and a conditioning mask personalized for Dad’s skin. He’ll also experience a de-stressing massage of the face, neck and shoulders that will leave him feeling totally relaxed and refreshed. Our tailor-made facial is perfect for the man looking to rejuvenate and cleanse his skin. Facials are a great way to relieve stress, and to also relax the muscles in your face, neck and shoulders.

Deep cleaning that he cannot do at home

Facials can include extractions, which is when the esthetician safely removes blackheads from your pores gets rid of anything that might be causing clogs. This procedure is not the same as squeezing a pimple on your own! It’s done very carefully to reduce the risk of scarring or damage. When pores are clear, then the esthetician has the ability to clean the pores themselves.

Home scrubs cannot come close to professional-level exfoliating products that target deep layers of skin and remove more dead cells. Chemical exfoliators, which use acids or enzymes to break down skin cells and remove them. Forbici estheticians are able to use these stronger products safely to give better results.

Before his facial

Tell Dad to skip shaving before his facial since shaving is an exfoliating process. Freshly shaved skin can become irritated so best to shave the day before your appointment.

Bonus: He will learn about skin products

An added benefit of seeing a professional for your face is that you will receive insights on what is best for your personal regimen. Our Forbici esthetician will provide a customized skin care plan for Dad's at home routine. Think of it like we think of haircuts (we always want to know the best products for our hair type).
