After the pandemic, we all need a little pampering.

And that’s a hairdresser’s super-power.

That was the lesson that the Cloud 9 Salon and Spa staff learned Tuesday from two internationally-renowned trainers for Paul Mitchell.

Robert and Mary Cromeans travel the world, training hairdressers in art and makeovers, and teaching them to run a more profitable and successful business.

Cloud 9 owner Bridgette Hardy says Robert Cromeans is literally known as the number one hair stylist in the world.

“He has been voted that for so many years in a row that he’s asked people to stop voting for him. So when I found out Paul Mitchell was coming to Warren, Ohio, they asked me what I would like in education and I just threw it out there. I said I’d like him to come to my salon and teach my staff. And a couple weeks later, they said OK.”

“It’s not about a haircut, it’s about a haircut experience. It’s not about a color, it’s about a color experience. So teaching professionals to take and elevate these experiences bigger and more wonderful creates incredible word of mouth reputation, it creates client loyalty and I think these are all great things a business like a hair salon needs to prosper.”
