Like most industries, the pandemic badly affected the hair industry, which is why the founders of Maven Center for Leadership and Entrepreneurship will open its doors to hairdressing professionals and salon owners to empower them through education.
On September 24, Maven launches L’Oreal Academie to elevate expertise for aspiring and professional beauticians and salon owners in Cagayan de Oro City.
L’Oreal is the world’s largest cosmetics company and is renowned in the beauty industry. It manufactures a variety of products centered on skincare, make-up, perfume, and hair care.
Maven, on the other hand, is an affiliated company of N&B Distributorship led by Sean Elot. They are the exclusive distributor for L’Oreal, Matrix, Orly, and other beauty products in Northern Mindanao.
Elevating Beauty Techniques
Through L’Oreal Academie, Maven aims to “elevate the standards of beauty by teaching hairdressers and other beauty practitioners the proper techniques.”
They will offer hair and beauty TESDA certified training, along with L’Oreal Discovery courses with corresponding certifications.
The personal care company also plans to cover the four pillars necessary in managing a salon business: wellness, financial literacy, fashion, and beauty—in the future.
Maven strives to accomplish its goal by helping other hairdressing professionals to adjust to the new standard regulations.
“Now more than ever, Maven’s goal is to help hairdressing professionals by providing them the proper training adjusted to the new normal regulations,” its statement read.
The training workshops will include how to shorten face-to-face services without sacrificing quality. Likewise, applying the minimum health standards inside a salon will be tackled to safeguard the well-being of the staff and clients.
“In times of uncertainty, education and knowledge are powerful tools to give you confidence,” it added.
Balancing quality services and safety protocols
Currently, Maven is waiting for its TESDA Accreditation approval. Moreover, it is also working on a partnership with TESDA to provide scholarships to hairdressers displaced by the economic repercussions caused by the pandemic.
By providing further education, independent hairdressing professionals will be capable of doing home services without compromising safety protocols.
Maven will have its first training sessions conducted by a L’Oreal Mentor beginning September 28 via video-conference platform Zoom, including some experts from Manila.
The current director of Maven is Dixon Yasay, Phd., the former Mayor of Opol, certified laughter yoga practitioner. He is in charge of the holistic wellness of the Maven community.
