Educating Our Team
Raika Studio takes pride in educating ourselves every opportunity we can. We educate our team through a variety of in-salon classes, seminars and research weekly on the latest industry techniques and trends. Education is what sets us apart. Our system of Stylist “Stages” supports each stylist in growth as a professional. Our Apprentices are trained by Kathleen Firth, owner, personally and begin training from their first day through their journey, with assistance from our stylists, to become well-educated, professional stylist with high standards to meet our desire to be the best of the best in our community and our industry.
At Raika Studio, educating ourselves is mandatory. We provide a full schedule of in-salon education where we invest in bringing some of the greatest educators in the industry to our salon and learn, hands-on in our own environment. We support and encourage our Apprentices and Stylists to attend industry opportunities throughout the region, nationally and internationally. The beauty industry trends and techniques change minute to minute and our partnership as a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon allows us to provide our guests the experience of well trained and well educated stylists who provide and exceptional service from the Lather Lounge Experience to your walk down West 35th St. feeling and looking fabulous!
