The Updo System Champion Course   Info Page

How would it feel to approach every
special event guest 
with confidence and excitement? 

So why did I developed the
Updo System Champion Course and how is it unique?

I was driven by: 

  • the need to serve more clients and make more money
  • to offer an amazing guest experience by keeping her engaged and calm 
  • making my work stand out so I got lots of referrals

No one was talking about:  

  • the entirety of the guest experience
  • the reality of difficult clients and difficult hair
  • ​the reality that good stylists burn out and young ones get scared away from work they love

I personally desired:

  • a way to do amazingly creative work quickly and beautifully!
  • to create a safety net that empowers YOU, the stylist
  • ​that every stylist believes they have as much potential as those they "follow" because you do!

This is the only all encompassing updo curriculum that addresses 
the full spectrum of this highly specialized service!

It covers:

  • New ways to learn the "why" of creativity vs "Am I doing this right?
  • ​How to break down any photo while embracing the guests subconscious emotional connection to it. 
  • ​It is the only course that addresses the mental and emotional gymnastics stylists must navigate as the guest unknowingly brings profound hopes, plus much anxiety into the appointment !

The Updo System Champion Course is the only one to cover it all!

Who is Gretchen Maurer?

Back in the day of the very first .com websites, 1998 to be exact, Gretchen revolutionized the wedding hair sector by creating For a decade Gretchen sold thousands of step by step hairstyling kits to stylists and brides around the world. With 10,000 unique visitors a day, back when people did not even own home printers or digital cameras Gretchen was providing digital assets. Her website was awarded the #1 beauty website by Brides magazine in 2002.

A salon owner at 29, teaching updos along the east coast and doing platform for Paul Joseph Digrigoli she saw a huge need and sought to write the very first wedding focused business book for the salon industry. Milady publishing picked it up and The Business of Bridal Beauty came out in 1996. She was also one of the early stylists to have bridal hairstyling cds for sale on 

Then, just as she was at the height of her freelance career, she and her husband changed course! They left their careers to volunteer on a self sustaining farm (a residential rehab facility) for 7 years. Her husband became the director of counseling and Gretchen began to work with the women's counseling team as a mentored for #metoo survivors. She grew to understand the power of empathy, the profound hard journey of those in recovery, and transformed her own life in the process. 

In 2016 she became certified as a Clarity Coach and with her husband they opened a mental health practice

In 2017 she returned to the beauty industry on-line and today she runs the largest Facebook Group exclusively devoted to special event stylists, Updo and Hairstyle Education page and group!
