New salon offers unique educational opportunity

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Both Andrew and Freeman are educators for Wella, Sebastian and Nioxin and continually learn new techniques.

“We’re going to be ahead of the trends,” Andrew said, adding that they’re going to bring educators from other artists outside of their realms of education to provide a well-rounded education to upcoming stylists.

The studio also is one of the only salons offering Milbon, known for using the best in Japanese hair care products.

The stylists said there could be 10 to 30 people in the classes at any given time.

The ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday created an exciting atmosphere at the new salon as about 30 people gathered to watch Freeman cut the red ribbon with large scissors, and Andrew accept the Norman Chamber of Commerce’s ceremonial “First Dollar” plaque.

“Hopefully you’ve made more than that in the past three weeks that you’ve been open,” said Chamber member Glenn Boone with a laugh.

Aside from the ribbon cutting, there also was an open house with hors d’oeuvres catered by Catering Creations and entertainment by DJ Byron Jackson. There also was a raffle for products and prizes. All proceeds from the event benefited the Bella Foundation, which assists homeless pets.

To schedule an appointment at Andrew Freeman Creative Studio, call 234-0456. The business also has a website, AndrewFreemanstudio.com.
