Founder & Instructor

Chris Venesky’s journey starts with always trying to better himself by continually learning and partnering up with professionals in our industry that can give him an opportunity to grow. Chris has experienced all areas of cosmetology through assisting his mentors, travelling across the country teaching techniques, building his own clientele in a salon, as well as owning his own salon. Having the chance to be a part of all aspects of our industry, Chris has been able to relate to each individual on all levels, therefore giving greater opportunity to help them reach their maximum potential.


His passion will never go away, for each day is a blessing to walk the walk with other hairstylists. His mission goes beyond just providing quality education to individuals interested in the cosmetology industry; it includes helping others to continue to grow and motivate, and be determined to always want to achieve more.


By the constant sharing of new techniques in coloring and cutting, he will equip each student with the confidence to build deeper relationships and more loyal clientele as they journey through their career.
