How would it feel to approach 
every special event guest 
with confidence and excitement? 
 Guys.....If you have to search for a video or feel anxiety when a client sends a photo...it's not your fault ! There is an easier way and you will learn it here!
  • I'm not sure where to start, I watch a video and forget it right away.
  • I'm in a creative rut and keep doing the same styles. I'm BORED and frustrated!
  • ​​I will be going along fine and then about half way through I get lost in the hairstyle and panic with brain fog!
  • ​I don't feel confident. I wish there was an easier step by step way to improve!
  • ​I worry she won't like it once I'm done.
  • ​I don't know how to break down a photo properly. I feel like I just wing it! Stress!
  • ​Ugh! The client... is there a better way to easily find out what she really wants? Or tell her hair hair won't do that picture?

What about these problems below?

Her hair is too long!
"She brings in a photo that has half as much hair as she does!" No worries!  My construction system will help you think through your "problem" hair issues. This way you can shift to a simplified construction system designed to  reduce anxiety! 
Her hair is too thin! 
"What if someone in the wedding party has hair I can't do?"  The Updo System will blow your mind with easy new ways and clear training  to amaze your fine hair,  and mid length guests! Thus, expanding your special event services to everyone!
I am so tired of the same photos!  
"I fear I have lost my art and creativity!" Ugg the same photos...! Let's free you up mentally, emotionally and creatively, while ensuring her an experience designed for referrals! The Updo System uncovers the art of breaking down the photo!
She looks like she is going to be moody! 
"A face like that can be super intimidating !" Most times they are just scared.  I will show you how to navigate the simple yet powerful new  brain science into your consultations so connection is made quickly and moods are altered toward you. 
     So why did I Develop The updo system Champion course and how is it unique? 
I was just like you! 
I started my career in a neighborhood salon in my home town.  
My #1 love was "finishing hair" somehow I had to make that faster, easier and more profitable! 
Systems were the answer! 
But I had to look outside of our industry!
The motivation to find a NEW way  grew from my husbands career as a 
quality control manager!
I devoured his books and manuals on quality, procedures and systems! 
I know I can make it easier for you! 
Whether you are a total beginner or an intermediate looking for more 
confidence and construction short cuts; 
this course is for you!
The Updo system Champion Course was crafted 
from 3 decades of my own experience

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 referrals came in
  • providing education that is focused on the hairstylist & guest

No one was talking about:

  • the entirety of the guest experience
  • the reality of difficult clients and difficult hair
  • real in salon and on-location situations
  • ​​the reality that good stylists burn out and young ones get scared away from work they love

I personally desired:   

  • a way to do styles quickly & beautifully!
  • to create a system that empowers YOU!
  • ​to see my student’s experience tremendous freedom and joy 
  • ​that every stylist believes they have as much potential as those they "follow" !
What if there was a simpler way to make this service work for YOU?!

ok Gretchen, I'm totally intrigued but still skeptical

" Gretchen shares so much information it has made me a much better stylist. Her sectioning system gives you the freedom to work with smaller sections and not become overwhelmed. I use to ask for photos of what people were wanting before the occasion so I could scour YouTube to "learn" the design...

...now , after working my way through the updo system modules I feel much more in control and am coming up with results wwwaaayyy beyond anything I had ever contemplated."   ~ Monika Hodkins

Frequently Asked Questions
   How can a one size system be capable of doing all kinds of updos? 
Awesome, I love answering this one. Much like a recipe follows a similar template, so does the updo system. What changes are the ingredients. Just like a chef creates an amazing dish based on what's fresh that day, so it goes with the special event hairstyle. Each guest has their own "ingredients" with their own hair challenges, unique tastes and personality. The system helps you to navigate all that easily! You can apply the system to any tutorial you watch!
   How fast can I expect to see results with
my hairstyling skills?
Once you start experiencing how the consultation is connected to the construction breakdown, your mind shifts from worry to creation! Quite frankly it's a genius system. You'll learn tons of tricks I have developed over my 30 years with guests. You will learn how to think on your feet and solve your own problems! Commit to practicing the tutorials, and you will see your skills transform!
   Honesty please! ...so what is the deal with these high value numbers? 
You know I had the same concerns when I looked at courses I wanted to buy.  Then once you take one and experience its value you realized you would pay even more in the end. It is hard to sell perceived value.  But it will pay for itself in just one wedding referral! 
   I am a make-up artist will this system work for me? 
Certainly! I have been told by many students that my teaching style is easy to follow.  Plus the millions of hair videos are not solving the problems stylists face behind the chair. My tutorials teach real hair issues and do not sugar coat creation using perfect models. Also, because success with hair is only 15% of the service. The rest is people skills and my system is the only one to addresses that! 
    Can I talk to you? Are you available for questions? What kind of support can I get if I get stuck?
Absolutely, I alone created this course and am totally accessible. I have been right where you are, and I love to meet fellow stylists who share this passion. You can message me but email works best Gretchen@updosystem.com I will do my best to answer your question, jump on zoom with you or help in any way I can!
   Do you have people who have used this training with success? 
Absolutely! I have been teaching this system my whole career. Now it has been brought to a new level for todays styles with the mind set component! I still hear from past students telling me they never lost what they learned and still have successful careers. Styles change but the system remains a solid foundation for success! 
   Why is there a mindfulness angle to this material?
This is a great question and my favorite to answer.
The Special event client is like NO other! Even she is totally unaware of her needs for that day. 

They are partaking in an event that is outside of their typical comfort zone. They are on display; they are in the company of others
as well as strangers.
They are doing something to their appearance that is also outside of their comfort zone.
They may have gone
 on a diet, gotten plastic surgery, taken dance lessons, took out a loan, found a new "plus one" to bring as a guest to the event.

Now, add to that the money they may have spent on gowns, jewelry, hair extensions, and the venue; wanting to impress people, hoping family and guests will
get along and have 
a good time.
Special event guests bring all of that with them into the service and most of it is subconscious "stuff" that can easily surface in anxiety, tears and family squabbles!
That is why. 

Because when you over deliver and anticipate issues they have over looked you are helping at a level,
that is unforgettable. And it is nothing more than awareness. You significantly improve their day and experience.
How would it feel to be booked out for a year or more? It wasn’t until I was doing prom kids from 6 different high schools to brides at various locations, that I started to see patterns.

Relational patterns,
common chaos, regional and ethnic differences
plus a slew of personality types, melt downs,
communication breakdowns, fights, snubs
 and the overall - human condition under the
full force of stress and excitement! My reputation was on the line so managing the wedding morning became part of MY success.
I had to figure this all out! 

And now I am sharing this all with you!
Certainly with the guarantee you have nothing to loose and tons to gain. 
I understand this is totally different than anything the 
industry has ever offered. But my promise to you is my integrity, 
experience, and faith in you that you can develop 
new skills to support yourself and grow your confidence and career.
