Success leaves clues and success in the Beauty Industry is no different. But, just who can turn to and learn from? Every week, your host, Beauty Industry Expert and Salon Business Coach, Miki Wright, brings you some of the best and brightest Black Artists and Entrepreneurs in the Beauty Industry to offer a ‘masterclass’ and take you backstage into their world.

How do I balance a successful and demanding career behind the chair with a great family life? How can I become a Platform Artist or Educator? What is it really like to work Fashion Week? That's just a taste of what our experts share, each and every week, to help you excel in your own career!

Host, Miki Wright, warns, "Prepare to be inspired, educated and entertained." Grab a friend and listen in for a weekly dose of gems that will boost your confidence and help you take your hair, skin, nail or make-up career to the next level.

Miki Wright went from struggling Stylist to booked solid in months, not years.  She then went on to own a salon where she trained her Stylists how to duplicate her success.  Fabulous Finishes, her former Salon and Spa, was named one of the “200 Fastest Growing Salons in the Country” by Salon Today Magazine – for three consecutive years!!! Why not learn what it really takes to grow your Salon business from someone who’s been in your shoes?  
 
Miki loves helping Hairstylists increase their income and boost their salon profits.  She is a Salon Business Coach and founder of www.BeautySuperStars.com and continues to share her knowledge to help Beauty Pros create the clientele, income and lifestyle they desire with the Beauty SuperStars Online Academy.

    Hair color & Texture vs. Race with Keya Artistically

    Hair color & Texture vs. Race with Keya Artistically

    Join @keyaartistically and Miki for an amazing and very candid conversation!  Keya shared about how she got started in the industry and some secrets to her success, her confidence - and how you can have it too!  


    In this conversation we explore:


    How she got into the most prestigious group in the Beauty Industry, Intercoiffure and her commitment to ensure others a 'seat at the table'.

    The Journey to becoming a Certified Hair Colorist through the American Board of Certified Haircolorists (ABCH, recently renamed).

    The role that discipline plays in enhancing your creativity!  This one is deep!  


    It would not have been a real interview if we didn’t talk about the racial divide in the Beauty Industry - her platform of Texture vs Race - and get some behind the scenes scoop on her epic, and transformational, conversation with Mary at Behind the Chair!
