glam rock spectacle

The staff at diPietro Todd all agree that this year’s annual Christmas Party with a “Glamrock” theme at SF’s newest hotspot JONES was one of Andrew and Sam’s best parties to date!! It seems as though everyone says that each and every year… but I will admit that this year was AMAZING!! Crazy enough, Kate Moss was on the cover of December’s French Vogue as a David Bowie look alike so we all knew we were riding the wave of what’s happening in fashion and modern culture, which we really pride ourselves on. The evening opened with a girl band named “Featherwitch”. They were beyond sexy and fun. After that, DJ Sam Isaac took over from there. The highlight of the evening was a performance piece by Michael O’Rourke (colorist in Palo Alto) as Freddie Mercury from the infamous 70’s band Queen. Michael was seriously channeling Freddie Mercury and the crowd was going wild to my favorite song “We are the Champions”.Thank you to the diPietro Todd staff. You are the champions!

It’s a Wrap

Reflecting back on this year, we are filled with gratitude.  As Educators, we pushed ourselves further than ever and as Stylists and Colorists we grew, learned and explored. We met and worked with many great hairstylists along the way from all across the country both at our Academy and in their home salons. With our Directors and Educators traveling across the country, we enjoyed working on the road in such locations as NYC, Seattle, LA, Chicago, Dallas, and Miami.  It’s always fun to see what other hairdressers in our industry are up to and being adaptable to various types of formats. We ran everything from small format private classes to big venue presentations. At our Academy here in SF, we’re offering new courses in 2012. While our popular classics continue to sell out, we feel its important to mix it up and offer new twists for our die hard repeat attendees. We had fun with our creative classes-  tying together cut, color and style compared to our normally departmentalized programs. Next year, we are offering this as a 2-day class which many of attendees have requested. Our enrollment continues to grow and we are so proud of our team and what they have accomplished. We are grateful for all of the attendees that took part in our Academy this past year. Thank you for visiting our beautiful city and sharing our passion for this amazing industry that we are all a part of. See you next year…..
