Sam Vernon

I went into cosmetology school thinking it would be a fast & easy way to make money. I learned quickly when I got into a salon it was neither. After working behind the chair for a year, I saw an opening for a local distributor and thought I could be more successful in that position. Once I started, I found my true passion was interacting and teaching other stylists about products and how to grow their business. After leaving the industry for a few years, I, like many, crawled my way back. I was able to get my old position back, and with that, a new love and purpose for what I could do. Since then, I have not only grown my territory, but became a Beauty Guru within State/RDA, as well as manage all education within my area. I have found my true calling lies in growing a stylist not only as a person but as a business woman/man, and hope to continue to reach many more stylists within Summit.
