Curtain Call

The diPietro Todd assistants raised the bar last Sunday with their fabulous show at the Club 525 on Howard Street. They took their inspiration from the late Alexander McQueen—the renowned bad boy of fashion. They expanded off what they had learned about McQueen in class and created some of the most progressive hair that has been seen in a very long time. Speaking honestly the color, cuts and upstyling could have been in something like W magazine and looked right on the mark. The audience was blown away with the art direction, fashion, makeup and the models that were chosen. All 38 assistants worked collectively as a team to create their best ever show ever and we were all really proud. The future looks bright at diPietro Todd. You can check out the rest of the photos here.

Our latest graduate, Alex Vega (Stylist @ Post St)

Somewhere in recent years diPietro Todd’s in-house training program called “Development” has been compared to Harvard when people speak of the best training the beauty industry has to offer. It is rewarding to hear that since we are very committed to our students that we hire and train. This spring we’ve graduated 3 students with one more finishing up this summer. All the students come to diPietro Todd’s “Development” program with hopes of working in a successful high end salon once they graduate. In the process, students work in a structured, self-paced program that takes up to 3 years to complete. Obviously we are more interested in the quality of their work than their speed. Their educators/mentors stretch them in every way possible to make sure by the time they finish our program they are technically in place, confident, creative and ready to tackle any hair issue or client needs. The students who work the hardest and have the most vision will make it to the soiree that they have to present to the staff before they get a position on the floor at one of the diPietro Todd Salons. We are always so proud of the students when they finish we could almost cry!
