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.
