For me, blogging is about making connections. In my case assisting people in the salon industry to make connections with other successful people who can help you reach your goals much faster. One such person is Phillip Wilson. Phillip has been called the Global Hairdresser of the Year. Modern Salon recently named him one of the top 100 educators of the Century, and he is currently the International Artistic Director for Hai Elite. His closest colleagues include the beauty industry's greatest legends. I met Phillip and his wife Mary at an industry event about two years ago and we've become great friends. We invited Phillip to Salt Lake City to be a guest artist at one of our Academys and the students just fell in love with him. We have sold out his classes 3 times in 3 months. What is it about Phillip that has made him so successful? Phillip is truly unique, his cutting system is different than anything else you have ever seen. It will inspire you and remind you why you became a hair stylist. I would beg, borrow or steal (okay, maybe not steal) to see Phillip live.
