Ethereal -Assistant Soiree

ETHEREAL_SOIREE-29

The assistants gleaned their inspiration from the artist James Turell who experiments with light and space and elegantly translated his work into minimalist cuts and color.  Stylists and colorists from all over the bay area gathered at Public Works to get a glimpse of the show that diPietro Todd assistants spend months producing, getting the hair, clothes, music and video just right. Andrew was heard saying it was one of our best assistant shows to date and how it felt so fresh and modern.
The images speak for themselves……Brilliant!

We’re so proud of you….

Love,
Kim and Andrew Todd

opening day 2011

diPietro Todd philosophy 101 was the message for “Opening Day” and our team of 38 salon assistants. Traditionally, we start the beginning of every new year with a major meeting conveying to staff what it takes to be a successful stylist at here at diPietro Todd. Our partner Winona Lewis (Fillmore salon) spoke of the importance of connecting with people. Maggie (Walnut Creek) joined in with her thoughts on image and how that plays into success. Dylan (Walnut Creek) brought everyone’s attention to running a steady business and Chris David (Palo Alto) talked about working your way to the top at diPietro Todd. We finished the morning with a power point presentation given by Akemi (Creative Director) and a sneak preview of what will be happening in 2011.

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!
