The certification of haircolorists has long been a vision of many professionals in our industry. Our goal is to establish a standard by which to judge competence and to acknowledge the level of excellence achieved in haircolor, thus creating creditability in the eyes of the consumer.
The title Board Certified Haircolorist will set qualified individuals apart from the masses and establish a higher level of professionalism and credibility for the consumer. As in all professions, the consumer will seek out those certified for their expert knowledge and service excellence.
At The American Board of Certified Hair Colorists Energizing Summit in Los Angeles, Judi Troutman had the pleasure of meeting Irma K. Jobst, MBA and discussed formulating a private salon brand of hair care and styling products and the creation of JT HAIR began.
Whether we use natural fruit-derived pectin from Denmark, keratin from New Zealand, Argan oil from Africa that is refined in the finest Italian processing plants, fragrances from Spain, the latest Japanese anti-aging ingredients, or any other globally sourced ingredient, our products perform with the latest technology and are very concentrated for stylist’s performance and consumer value.
