Read Michael Vallance's Blog, I keep seeing his links and only just recently started reading them. He has great points and gets them across with simple straight forward solutions. (Michael did not pay me for my opinion. But may approve this message.)

Michael, as a new stylist, I so appreciate and value all your ongoing discussions. Thank you so much for sharing some of your wealth of experience and knowledge. Thank you also for encouraging so many others to join the conversation. I find your comments, here and on your B2MR site, inspiring, thought-provoking and very helpful.

I am extremely inspired together with your writing abilities as smartly as with the structure to your weblog.
Is this a paid theme or did you modify it your self?
Either way keep up the nice high quality writing, it is rare to look
a nice blog like this one nowadays..


Thanks for caring enough about an industry that offers so much to those who “grasp” it. Keep up the good work.

“Mike’s knowledge, from teaching, to stage work, to working on a salon floor, made it very easy for him to fit well into any hair industry environment. With the knowledge, experience, integrity, and energy that Mike demonstrates, he would be an enormous asset to any education team.

Mike taught classes that ranged from basic introductory levels through to advanced colour correction as well as classes on colouring techniques. At all of the educational events, we found that Mike was very knowledgeable in the field of colour and shared this knowledge with a real passion. He was very adept at bringing out the best in stylists, encouraging them to challenge themselves and strive to reach their fullest potential.”
