Execute! The CIK Business Retreat

Register Now

We have all completed cosmetology school so our Tight Curl Mastery Workshops were created to enhance and deepen your skill in tight curls.

What we weren’t taught in school was how to build our businesses. Whether we are an employee, booth renter, suite renter, or salon owner many of us lack a fundamental grounding in how to build sustainable + profitable business.

As licensed and practicing cosmetologists we are already experts (sme’s) or well on our ways to becoming one with technical education. But this is 2020 and everything is digital.

Even if you just want to grow by word of mouth, word of mouth is digital. Our ability to understand, adapt, harness and engage in the digital space enhances our ability to collect more coins and curate the clientele we desire.

One CIK Alum stylist has doubled her behind the chair revenue as a part time stylist, another increased her monthly revenue over 50% since May and is now looking to take her mobile styling business to a permanent rental space

Execute! is the culmination of two years of teaching business alongside the technical. Shifts in the economy and technology in 2020 have now required that we shift and give our CIK Business Framework its due in our first business retreat. 2/3 of our framework is focused on key business topics:


• Maximize Your A.T.M.

Which currency is the most valuable? Your Attention/Energy, Time, or Money?
We determine your primary currency to determine how you proceed in business as a curl stylist.

• Work Your Chair

Streamline your business to maximize revenue behind and beyond the chair. We uncover your ideal target market in order to:
Attract your dream client
Create your "love to do" menu

• Price For Profit

Affordable means nothing If you can't stay in business
We reveal your balls to the wall revenue goals and develop a pricing, product, and packaging plan to achieve it.

• Own Your Online Real Estate

You must be Googleable with receipts
Forget about branding, Lets Talk Visual Communication across all platforms and why it is imperative to bring your customer on a digital journey before they ever sit in your chair.

• Communicate Your Value

Fear & Money don’t mix, you must understand and clearly articulate the value you bring to your clients hair lives.
We crafting compelling copy for the curls and the culture that is clear, authentic, and persuasive.

• Set Your Systems

A failure to plan is a plan to fail.
We dig into your business model, intellectual property, and legal structures with a small business attorney to discover where you are leaving coins on the table.

You will leave the Execute retreat with systems and processes to bring clients in and through your business to create an impactful raving fan engine. You'll raise your prices to the true value of your services, and initiate alternative revenue generating projects complete with a 90 day action plan and follow up for execution.
