“In 2017 we at Wella and Hairdressers at Heart wanted to role educators into the scholarship because of the critical role they play in the continuing education of colorists and stylists across the industry,” said Sal Mauceri, Senior Vice President North America Professional Beauty and Global Nail at Coty Beauty. “Hairdressers at Heart is constantly exploring ways to provide life-changing education that serves as a catalyst in the careers of talented professionals, and we feel strongly that the Master Color Expert program offers the best advanced education opportunity in the industry.”

The Wella Master Color Expert course is a signature, 10-day seminar completed in two five-day phases offered at Wella Studios. Focused on giving students an expert-level understanding of color, the certification course begins by establishing Wella’s color theory before transitioning into building technical and creative skills, allowing stylists to master their craft and grow their clientele. Master Color Expert graduates have been found to grow their personal revenue up to 30 percent more than non-graduates.

To participate in the Master Color Expert program, candidates must have five years of color experience and have completed Wella’s Color Craft, Foiling Craft, Color Correction and Creative Color classes.
