Pivot Point Creative Jam for Beauty Educators Comes to Chicago Nov 15-16, 2015

Pivot Point International urges beauty educators of future graduates, salon professionals, or colleagues, to connect their own creativity and artistry with Pivot Point’s top talents in the company’s home town of Chicago.

Creative Jam Chicago, the first Pivot Point Creative Jam to be held in the United States, will take place November 15-16, 2015. To add to the creative atmosphere, Creative Jam Chicago will be held at Prairie Production Studios in downtown Chicago. Hundreds of beauty professionals have attended Creative Jams in many other countries including the Netherlands, Sweden, Taiwan and Mexico.

“Travel in itself is educational,” says Yolly ten Koppel, Pivot Point’s Global Artistic Director. “Add the creative exploration with like-minded beauty educators, and your travel adventure can be life-changing!”
