How it works

Wella Professionals have created the ultimate course for the elite of global salon colorists.

The five-month course takes place entirely online, so you and your team can learn without taking precious time off your salon floor. The experience includes video masterclasses with technical training you can watch again and again, practical projects to complete, one-to-one feedback on your progress, a community to learn with, and the chance to gain Wella Professionals accreditation to the level of Master Color Expert.

Color accreditation that pays

Through a series of exams, practical projects and accreditation calls with Wella Professional educators, your colorists could attain the highest level of color accreditation from one of the world’s leading professional hair care companies, which will help you retain and attract more of your target clientele.

Salon-relevant insight from the world’s top Wella Professional educators

Your team will watch high-quality, easy-to-follow video content from world-class Wella educators they’d normally need to fly across the world to be taught by.

They won’t simply learn color theory, customer experience best-practice, scientific knowledge and technical skills. Wella Professional educators will show them how to apply it to real-life situations to improve customer consultations, color application and - ultimately - your margins.

One-to-one feedback on projects

The backbone of this course is feedback from world-class Wella Professional educators who are determined to help your team advance to the highest level of expertise. Regular project work will be accompanied by monthly feedback calls.

Plus, you will get access to the in-house support team who are on hand Monday-Friday via email to help you make the most of your investment.

Train anytime, anywhere.

Wella Color Expert materials are all available online, so your team can access them anytime, anywhere, on any device. The experience is designed to fit around their professional career and personal life.

They also get access to the course for life, so unlike an in-person workshop, your team can rewatch top educators at work again and again and again - forever.
