"There are so many deals and education resources on Sola Pro! I am opening my books to female clients for the first time so I have been diving into the tutorials on women's haircutting for a refresher. There are also several motivational and business building videos that I could watch a hundred times! They range from quick 1 minute videos which are great for in-between clients and full one hour step-by-step tutorials. There really is something there for everyone!" Jessica Zeinstra
