Staying educated, connected, and inspired is key to creating a thriving career. That's why we created the Sola Sessions, which features the industry’s top business, marketing, and artistic educators who help independent salon owners live the salon life of their dreams. The Sessions are all about connection, and after a rollercoaster of a year, we are ready to reconnect with all of you!

On Monday, May 17th we are bringing the Sola Sessions to you for a virtual event! For the first time ever, we are inviting all beauty professionals to experience the Sola Sessions. Tickets are $59 for General Admission, and Sola professionals can receive an exclusive discount of just $29 per ticket. Reconnect with us and stay educated with the biggest and best brands in the industry — all from the comfort of your own home.

Trust us, you do NOT want to miss out. Here are 10 reasons why you'll want to join us:

1. Two Incredible Keynote Presenters 🤩

Tim Storey

As an acclaimed author, motivational speaker, and life coach, we are thrilled to have Tim Storey join us on the virtual Sessions stage. 

In his inspirational keynote, Tim will describe what it takes to have a Miracle Mentality in the midst of the mundane, the messy, and the madness. He will inspire you to see that when a setback presents itself, the comeback is just around the corner.

Britt Seva

Joining Tim is Britt Seva - who is basically THE social media and marketing guru for hairstylists. She has coached over 10,000 stylists and salon owners to build wealthy businesses and lives behind the chair in her signature "Thrivers Society" program.

In her informative keynote, Britt will teach you how to master the marketing funnel. Through her ultra-strategic workshop, you'll be able to uncover the missing pieces in your marketing strategy so that you can boost referrals, turn social media followers into clients, and revive your retention efforts.

2. Education From The Industry's Best 📚

We kept teasing the rockstar lineup we had in the works, well, because they are some of the industry's biggest stars. So without further ado, here are your 2021 Sola Sessions Reconnected presenters:

  • Sam Villa (Redken)
  • Larissa Love (Joico)
  • Daniel Mason-Jones (SalonCentric Education)
  • Michael Cole (Summit Salon)
  • Dawn Bradley (Dawn Bradley Hair)
  • Celeste Hilling (Skin Authority)
  • and LOTS more to be announced soon!

3. Choose Your Own Journey 💯

Different tracks to choose your own journey. At any given point throughout the day, you'll be able to choose between business, marketing, inspiration, artistic, or an alternative services track. No matter your specialty, and no matter your interest, we've got you covered.

4. An Unbeatable Price 💸

Your continued education is invaluable and what better investment to make at this juncture in your career than in yourself. Since this Sessions is coming to you, you only have to worry about our super affordable event ticket price. No travel, no hotel, no problem!

For the low price of $29 for Sola pros and $59 for non-Sola professionals, you'll get 18+ hours of education from the industry’s top business, marketing, and artistic educators.

5. On-Demand Education 💻

We understand it's impossible to watch three webinars at the same time, and that sitting for six hours straight might not be possible. Don't worry! All sections will be recorded and available to watch until the end of 2021, so you can revisit and rewatch to your heart's content.

6. Virtual SWAG Bag 🛍

It's no secret that shopping on the show floor is one of the best parts of industry events (and we miss it as much as you!). With our virtual SWAG bag, you'll gain access to exclusive specials from our event sponsors. From backbar, to retail, sundries, Sola SWAG, and more - you'll feel the buzz of saving money on the show floor all from the comfort of your own home.

7. Virtual Expo Hall ✨

In our virtual Expo Hall, you'll be able to connect with your favorite brands, ask questions, learn more about what each brand has to offer, and join live demos.

8. Connect With Your Favorite Educators via Live Chat 💬

We know that you'll have burning questions for our rockstar lineup educators. At the Sola Sessions Reconnected, you have the opportunity to not only connect with other independent salon owners, but you'll also gain real-time access to live Q&A with some of the biggest names in the industry through our live chat.

9. Event MCs That You Can't Help But Fall in Love With 🎤

It wouldn't be a Sola Sessions without the one and only Kim Bennett, also known as @kimi_kisses. Her bubbly personality and ability to connect with beauty professionals from all walks of life make her an absolute shoo-in as one of our event MCs.

Joining Kim on the virtual stage is Steven Wren. You might know him as one of our 2020 Faces of Sola, barber extraordinaire, or from one of our many panel discussions or Instagram takeovers. We know him as a personable, motivational member of our Sola family and we are so excited to welcome him as Kim's MC co-host.

10. Reconnect With Your Community 💙

“We need community, it gives us a place to belong. Community pulls out the creativity in us. It infuses us with strength and makes us into better people.”

We couldn't have said it better ourselves. To thrive, not only as a professional but as a human being, we need community. 2020 left us all craving connection, and although we wish we could be together physically, we are thrilled to reconnect with our Sola Family in a virtual capacity. So be there! Join us on Monday, May 17th to be a part of something bigger, to become better, and to come back wanting more... We've got some big things coming 💯

Grab your ticket NOW. We can't wait to reconnect with you!
