Local cosmetology students and instructors learned exclusive skills Sunday during a training session.
The X-My Hair Boykin Training Summit was Sunday afternoon at Meridian's New Holiday Inn.
Sean Boykin is a former Redken artist. He is now a national Platform artist. He taught different hair styles Sunday from 10 in the morning until two in the afternoon. The class focused on cuts and colors.
"Well the premise of this class is a little different than you normal hair shows. This is basically a training summit that is actually bridging students' classroom time with the real world. Most of these student here are about to graduate. So we are taking what they've learned in school and showcasing what they will do behind the chair," says Boykin, the class instructor.
The Mississippi Cosmetology State Board sanctioned the event for any of the students and instructors in attendance. Meridian Mayor Cheri Barry will be speaking Monday at the second day of this summit.
