On Sunday, March 8th, thirty colorists from across the US, even France, made the pilgrimage to Meche Salon for Tracey Cunningham’s first ever color class!
Immediately following her announcement for the March 8th class, via Instagram, Meche’s phones exploded. Our poor receptionist, Dana, was completely overwhelmed! In fact, up until the day of the class, we were bombarded with phone calls, emails, and Instagram comments about future classes, models, and cancellation lists. This in addition to the high volume of calls we already receive! Oof! Thank you for your enthusiasm and support! We are flattered and truly grateful!
At the end of the first day, Tracey called into the salon and so sweetly asked “Has anyone signed up for the class yet?”
To which Dana replied “Uh, Tracey… it sold out in an hour and a half! I had to shut the phones off!”
Tracey, often humble and unaware of her own celebrity, was blown away and ecstatic! She immediately set out to plan what she would demonstrate and how.
Fast forward 4 weeks, I walked into our salon to find it rigged with two 60″ flat screen monitors streaming a live feed of the class, fresh catering, and 30 attentive, excited colorists. Tracey is known to work herself to the point of exhaustion (she loves her work!) so we tried to limit the class to 4 models, but she managed to sneak in an extra 3 models! She also put together a lovely gift bag for everyone!
The class was a massive success and she’s already in the beginning stages of planning another! A huge thank you to everyone who helped make this possible! Stay tuned to the salon’s instagram and Tracey’s for upcoming classes!
Take a peek at some of the models from the day!
Devin flew out from Oklahoma to participate in the class! She had been highlighting her hair blonde for quite some time. Tracey turned her into a fiery little ginger! I love how it brings out the warmth in her skin! Pushing vibrant color into pale, porous blonde can be a task in and of itself, but Tracey made Devin the perfect tone of red for her.
Alexis came in with a virgin, natural brunette head of hair. Tracey put some highlights à la Lily Aldridge in to accent Adrian Castillo’s cut. Amazing what a little dimension can do!
Makeup Artist, Kymber, came in with about 4 inches of gray. Tracey wanted to make it easier for her to transition into gray. She highlighted and toned the regrowth, softening the transitioning. Stunning!
