Why Clive and Co. Apprenticeship?
I have been in the salon a few times and always enjoy the atmosphere.  The artists working at Clive and Co. are more impressive in their field than any other salon I have been to.  I could see that the training was much more advanced and I wanted to be a part of it.

What is the training like? What are you learning?
The training is very in-depth.  We all seek perfection through practice, practice practice!  I am learning how to work in a salon setting – on a team and how to achieve client’s goals through proper color formulation and precise application.  I am learning how to be the very best colorist I can be.

How do you feel this program prepares you for a career in hairstyling?
This program – in the first month – had already prepared me for my career more than any other program I had been in.  I am so excited about my future with Clive and Co.!

Why Clive and Co. Apprenticeship?
The positive atmosphere, the hands-on training, the fact that Clive truly cares about seeing us succeed – and the structure he provides us.

What is the training like? What are you learning?
The training is challenging. But I have phenomenal support to help us succeed.  I’m learning the proper way to blow dry & style, consult with clients and cut hair.

How do you feel this program prepares you for a career in hairstyling?
Clive not only educates us on how to blow dry, cut and style hair properly – but on how to talk and work with clients.  He gives us the confidence to make sure we know how to handle any situation.

Why Clive and Co. Apprenticeship?
I have heard great things about Clive and Co. from a friend.  The Apprentice Program reminded me a lot of where I worked prior. After spending two days at the salon with the stylist – I knew this was the perfect place – with the perfect people.  It was exactly where I wanted to work.  This program would teach me so much knowledge I can’t get anywhere else – and I could grow as a stylist here.

What is the training like? What are you learning?
The training is very precise… but that’s what makes Clive and Co. the best of the best.  Those teaching are very helpful and want you to learn, which pushes you personally as well.  I am learning about the Wella color line as well as applying color in different ways and perfecting client consultations.

How do you feel this program prepares you for a career in hairstyling?
This program prepares you to be one of the best stylists by perfecting our skills and seeing/dealing with real life situations.  You don’t truly learn until you work in a salon with an amazing apprenticeship program.  I get to learn from the best – to prepare myself to be the best as well.

Apprentice: Madison

Beauty School: Paul Mitchell Dallas

Why Clive and Co. Apprenticeship?
Definitely for the education….  I knew when I got out of school that I wanted to work in a salon where the education never ended.  I enjoy learning new things and since trends and styles and techniques change – I wanted to make sure I never fall behind.

What is the training like? What are you learning?
It can be intense. But I love the structure to it; there’s no guesswork involved.  I know what I need to do to stay on track, and that helps me in the long run because I hate being unorganized or feeling lost.  I’ve learned more than I have anywhere else I’ve worked.  I love that we take a healthy approach to doing hair.

How do you feel this program prepares you for a career in hairstyling?
I feel like it’s going to set me up to be extremely successful. Everything I have and will learn definitely will help me be more confident in the future.

DE-2It takes a lot to be the best hair salon in Dallas. We do it – by creating an amazing staff. This can only be achieved – by taking the best of the best, and grooming them in the Clive and Co. style and methodology.

Apprentice: De McElroy

Beauty School: Regency Beauty Institute

Why Clive and Co. Apprenticeship?
Education is the #1 reason.  I had done research on Clive’s career – I knew he had the knowledge and professionalism that would take my career to the next level.

What is the training like? What are you learning?
Training as an assistant was incredible, because I got to watch and ask questions while the hair cutters were working on clients – which means – education was given to me everyday.  Not only on how to cut hair but how to handle the consult. Then what I learned I got to put into practice on model night. I’m always being challenged to be better and do better.

How do you feel this program prepares you for a career in hairstyling?
The program gave me education that is second to none.  I know I can get a client and have the confidence – because of the education provided to me to achieve the client’s desired look – or get them on the path to get there.  But one of the cool ways it prepares me for my career is doing my presentation. I had to find 8-10 models – cut their hair on my own time.  Work with the colorists to color the hair. Then – present a little fashion show! Finally -I had to explain all the work that was put into the hair cuts.  It as hard – but one of the best experiences in my life because it challenged me to come up with ideas and execute them.

MichaelThere is no question that NOBODY does training like Clive and Co. – our salon training program is unlike any other industry training program – and much more involved and well-rounded.  A career at Clive and Co. as a stylist (whether it be a hair cutter, or hair colorist) is one that is long-term, and involves continual education and development.

Apprentice: Mike B.

Beauty School: Tono & Guy

Why Clive and Co. Apprenticeship?
I’m always researching photographers, make-up artists, and hair dressers/salons – this one seemed to be the most professional and diligent.

What is the training like? What are you learning?
The training is continuous all day long as a ‘real’ apprentice – unlike other salons, where the apprentice is the house keeper. You work directly under the hair dressers holding sections for them, assisting in blow drys, and style outs… I am learning everything all over again. I thought I knew it all – Clive proves me wrong every day!

How do you feel this program prepares you for a career in hairstyling?
It causes me to be even more detailed in everything I do.  To the way I hold a brush – to combing a section about to be cut.  They each me to be a better profesional and speak to the client correctly.

uRSULA At Clive and Co. – we have an apprentice program like no other. We are literally – creating, molding and shaping – as we do our client’s hair and image – artists to our own unique brand of hair stylist.   Our unparalleled standards and award-winning processes and development program set us apart from all other hair salons – not just for the hair we cut and color, but for the careers we build.

Apprentice: Ursula Lar

Beauty School: Aveda

Why Clive and Co. Apprenticeship?
{this program} is such a fantastic training – everyone is pretty much family here. We all encourage and help one another.  Everyone is very understanding here – Clive really takes care of his staff – who come first.  If we didn’t have such an amazing staff – there would be no Clive and Co. Not to mention – benefits – no other salon does that! All around – it’s a great place to start advanced training.

What is the training like? What are you learning?
The training can be pretty intense at first.  But once you grasp the concept, the idea that goes behind everything – your mind will be blown.  Because it will all make sense.  Training part is broken down – first you will be prepared to learn ‘how’ to blow dry, then you will be tested out. After this is completed you will start with (for me) basic cuts, then on to testing on this.  Once you complete this – you will become a protege, and you will be able to be requested by clients on the floor.  Next, the creative test – and once that’s complete – 6 weeks after your test – you will be given a date for your presentation and within that 6 weeks, you will cut and consult on hair (for 8-10 models) and present those on model night.

How do you feel this program prepares you for a career in hairstyling?
We have training model nights every Wednesday night – with prepares us to bring certain models for hair cuts we need work on – even after we’re on the floor. You will always have model nights, so we are constantly learning every week – preparing ourselves to be better – that is what makes us THE BEST hair salon in Dallas.
