"Sharing an idea you care about is a generous way to change your world for the better. The culture we live in next month is a direct result of things people like us share today" -Seth Godin

Most events and education are designed to promote a specific brand or company. While this is a necessary part of marketing a successful product, Hb wants to provide a platform for educators from diverse backgrounds to come together and share generously with our community, without having to sell or promote anything -  purely for the love of hair.

With this in mind, Hb held our first Teach In at ISSE Long Beach followed by a second at IBS New York. Both events featured in depth demonstrations and were powerful examples of the magic that happens when we put passion before promotion, and celebrate education.

Teach in has featured some of our crafts finest educators, including Mark Hayes, Lupe Voss, Nick Arrojo, Traci Sakosits, DJ Muldoon, Adam Federico, Mainentrance Artists, Dean Holcombe, Douglas McCoy and Aaron Johnson - along with rising stars and future leaders: Cantrell Mitchell, Corrinn Dinan and Stephanie Von Meijer.

With so many passionate hairdressers and students attending NAHA and Beacon during PBA Beauty Week, Vegas seemed like the perfect place for our next Teach In. Through the support of PBA, Teach in After NAHA, will be held on July 13, 10am – Noon, at The Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino. 

Seating is limited to 300. Note: The first 100 seats are reserved for those who purchase their NAHA Tickets through; this also includes 2 drink tickets for the Hb Meet Up at the NAHA Red Carpet Reception.

For the remaining seats, we will send email invitations to all members of in late June; the first 200 to RSVP will be admitted complimentary.
