Michael Levine Answers Your Emails: Is It Me or My Staff? Part 1

Michael Levine on the need to create an empowering culture (in addition to “building a business”) if you are to avoid the common pitfalls encountered by most salons.  

 

About: Michael Levine has been a hairdresser since 1993. Having had the luxury of being trained by incredible mentors and learning from some of hairdressing's icons from very early on, Michael has been featured on stages across North America almost from the beginning of his career. Opening his first salon, called Statik in 1998 with his wife and no other staff, Michael Levine has built a multi-award winning salon company through developing new talent and rather than by hiring stylists with a clientele.
