Scruples hosted its first Symposium August 13 – 16, 2011. New and current educators gathered at the Hilton in Minneapolis to be welcomed as members of the Scruples family and be immersed in a culture of education.
The event kicked off with a welcome cocktail party. Quickly following, Associate Artists: Ashley Anderson, Amanda Trevenen, Lianna Moore, Karla Vasquez, Jesse Koenig, Brian Banks, William Earl Edwards, Judy Arias and Sean Smithhart wowed the audience with a runway show displaying their amazing talents. The Design Team ended the evening with a mesmerizing performance showcasing vibrant coloured hair.
The next three days were filled with new education programs. After a motivating general session, attendees divided into breakout classrooms. Design Team member, David Steiner and Director of Technical Education and School Programs, Gayle Zaier led breakout classrooms exploring the cutting edge techniques of Scruples Cutting By Design program. By teaching the basic cutting foundations every stylist needs in their arsenal, the visionary duo was able to demonstrate how to custom fit each haircut to an individual.
Directing the Colour by Design program was Terrence Michael Renk, Design Team member and Emmy winner. By providing a deeper understanding of colour, its effects and abundance of colouring techniques, he was able to take everyone into the world of colour like never before.
Director of Field Education and Scruples Academy, Amie Breckenridge Goltz discussed the new support put in place for all Scruples educators. She introduced Scruples Constellation Team, a gathering of Scruples brightest stars. It is a program to layout the possible career paths an educator can choose and in return how each path helps to create a breathtaking team of stars.
