dPT Flea Market 2013


It only took one special fund raising dinner for the partners at dPT to see what buildOn was doing for teenagers in need and everyone was on board to help this organization raise money for a good cause.  Timely enough, we already had the dPT flea market idea in the works and it was then a simple decision to bring the two ideas together.  It was a recipe for success—- A group of like minded hairdressers with big hearts and stuff to make or sell along with Maya Batki, our dPT community organizer acting as director for the event.  Of course we couldn’t have done this without our friends, clients, sponsors and employees.

Thank you everyone for helping us help others.

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…..

Acanthe Launch

diPietro Todd Salons + Academy

Amita Moticka (Academy Director of Haircutting) and our Creative Team did a beautiful demonstration on six curly haired models last week for a group of Rene Furterer Sales Associates who traveled to San Francisco from all over the United States. Our mission was to experiment with their new Acanthe Curl Enhancing products (officially launching in April) and deliver an exciting variety of results on how to use this new product for our very special Rene Furterer guests. The buzz was all about natural, beautiful and sexy curly hair for both men and women. We were ecstatic when Hubert Bevelsborg (CEO & President of Rene Furterer US) called our presentation “a huge success!” We are looking forward to visiting the Rene Furterer VIP’s in New York next month to continue building our relationship with diPietro Todd Academy and the Rene Furterer brand.
