Wink University

In addition to sending our stylists to different cities for continued education, we host a monthly in-house education program called Wink University. We bring in top educators from Goldwell, KMS, Oribe, and DEVA CURL, and sometimes our own staff shares their expertise. All of our stylists have specialized skills to teach, and this program allows us to showcase our talents and share information.

If you are interested in being our model for one of our upcoming classes email us (shop@ilovewink.com) or call (877-277-4070).
