Tatum Drewes – Colorist And Educator

299284_10150376679104289_4114541_nAs a color educator as well as a colorist I have the opportunity to bring extensive knowledge and ideas back to the salon, and I love working behind the chair with the newest techniques and products!

I became a colorist at a young age. My first intern experience was working under a Schwarzkopf educator. He influenced my life so strongly and in such a positive way that I wanted to be able to do that for others, that’s when the passion for education came to me.

Working as a Schwarzkopf educator, I get to learn the “latest” techniques and/or trends. “Essential Looks” is the most popular advanced class that I bring into the salon. It is a favorite as I review all of the latest runway looks and I teach colorists how to make the “runway” look “salon friendly” so that it is trendy yet wearable and beautiful! Every week I get to walk into a salon and teach something new and inspiring!

I have traveled the states and internationally, training and working with some of the best in our industry. I have had the privilege to work with celebrity artists, top international artists and award wining colorists.

Another great aspect of working as an educator is the great opportunity to do color for hair shows and runway shows. This is a completely different experience than working behind the chair. When working on a model for a show there is limited product available and time is of the essence! This is where fast thinking about technique and color theory come in!

I love working on my clients in the salon and being an educator gives me the opportunity to always have the newest technology product wise, and to consistently deliver innovative and beautiful results to my salon clients!
