The Fungus Among Us

The Ohio State Board of Cosmetology is now requiring that all licensed professionals have 2 CE hours in on the subject of Safety & Sanitation for the 2019-2021 renewal period. This class covers ALL license types under the State Board of Cosmetology.

Join us for a fun and informative class about industry-specific safety & sanitation! We will be teaching about how to identify various skin conditions and more. In addition to identifying these conditions on our guests, we will be explaining how to speak about them confidently and gently when addressing issues.  All professionals will walk away with new information and a deeper understanding of salon sanitation.

Safety & sanitation relates directly to the success of a salon or spa. Guests are either attracted or deterred from a business based largely on the cleanliness. The Stay Sharp Nation Team will be explaining how sanitation is often responsible for business success.

Don’t Run with Scissors

Salons and spas are the home of community and creativity. On a day to day basis, our careers are filled with making people feel great about themselves and sharing life experiences. Every now and then we are faced with challenging situations such as issues of safety.

In our class, “Don’t Run with Scissors”, salon professionals will learn what to do in emergency situations such as a guest having a health problem, what do to in case of an intruder, how to appropriately deal with children in a salon setting and much more.

This class is worth 2 CE Hours specifically in the area of safety and sanitation as required by the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology.  Join us for a useful class about dynamics that are often forgotten in our salons and spas.

Students will come out of this class knowing what to do in the event of an emergency or a questionable safety situation and how to properly document it in the event of a legal issue. Stay Sharp Nation makes learning a blast. The education team includes multiple presenters to make the topics exciting and relatable.
