About the trainer

With a passion for teaching and instilling confidence in others, Tab Salsman has deeply rooted his hairstyling career in education. As a national platform artist and educator, he has over a decade of experience educating and working behind the chair. Tab’s goal is to ensure every hairdresser, regardless of their time behind the chair, will take away a fresh approach as well as the confidence to try new methods and develop their own creative styles. He draws inspiration from street fashion, youth culture, music and photography, incorporating these concepts into his classes. As a progressive hairdresser, Tab understands that cut and color work hand-in-hand to create a look and utilizes his abilities to create a timeless, yet modern aesthetic. He believes that cutting hair is only half of what it takes—showing it off in the finish is how a complete look is achieved. He feels it is not what you cut off, but what you leave that matters. I’ve had the great fortune of being able to teach internationally & nationally for a wide range of hair stylists with varying backgrounds. Regardless of who I’m teaching to, one universal factor is that stylists want to learn how to translate a photo a client gives them as inspiration into a hair cut that matches the true expectations of the client. Far too often our industry has always had a tendency to show stylists & clients alike, trending haircuts or cool “tricks” rather than focusing on solid understanding of shapes - face shapes, head shapes or the importance of elevation & distribution. With my courses, hairdressers will walk away with more than just a trick or trending new haircut. My courses are for all hairdressers at any stage of their career - whether they are just starting their journey, seasoned or feeling mental burnout/ physically in pain at the end of the day from poor ergonomics. At the end of the day we all want to be better & make more money & spend more time with the ones we love outside of the salon. My courses will help you get all of those things - from essential fundamentals, how to step up your photo game for advertising, how to raise prices and effectively sell retail. As a hairdresser myself, I know the pain points of our industry and thankfully I’ve been able to navigate around them and I want to share these tools with others. Whether he’s teaching or working behind the chair, Tab finds constant inspiration in the creativity and support of the beauty industry. “I love people,” he says, “and I love that over the years, we’ve grown into a community that helps each other be the best we can be.” Tab is also the creator of Tools And Bags. www.TABCUTSHAIR.COM www.TOOLSANDBAGS.COM
