  • Celebrate Beauty in Iowa 2013 – Professional Competition Winner

Heather Mohr – It was so exciting and fun being a competitor in the professional

 Affiliate #16      “Mane Event” competitiion.  I was so happy to win 1st place. I

                                 really encourage more professional stylists to enter the

                               competition next year.  Competing makes you a better stylist

                               and it’s great for your business too.  When people and clients

                               know you’ve participated in competition, it builds trust and

                               respect in your abilities.  I am so glad 

CBI has brought a

                               Professional competition to State convention.  I look forward

                               to it every year.

  • ICE Design Team 2013 – “The Trifecta Collection” is the trend this team of 3 ICE

                                     members presented at “Celebrate in Beauty 2013” plus various other

                                     con-ed classes across the state.  The collection consisted of haircuts

                                     (Women & Men), haircolor,make-up and nails.

       Jean Boss #7 -  The Trifecta Collection for 2013 has been a great experience as a

                                  designer and teacher.  Promoting 

CBI, ICE and the Team has been

                                  such an honor.  Thank you ICE for having Melanie, Holly and

                                  myself as the Design Team.

     Melanie Brons #16 – Being a part of the design team is always hard work, but

                                  ultimately is a very fun and rewarding experience.  The most

                                  challenging part of this design team was coming up with the theme of

                                  where our ideas were coming from/going to.  Once we established the

                                  name of “Trifecta Collection”, things came together very nicely.  We

                                  would bounce ideas back and forth and come up with solutions and

                                   suggestions.  The rewards of being on the design team come when

                                   other stylists share with me how they have used the look we created

                              on a client, as well as the fun times and memories made with Jean and

                              Holly.  Thanks to both of you for all your help and hard work for the

                              betterment of 

CBI as well as the industry.
