New & Trending Classroom Education
One of the best things about attending any Premiere event is the plethora of education that is included with a Show Pass. With the over 600 classes offered at Premiere Orlando this year alone there is bound to be something new for everyone. However, Premiere is excited to add some newcomers to their educational program this year.
CosmoProf Education will feature Lala Chihaha (@lalasupdos) who will present on Bridal and Braided Styling, Leysa Carrillo will be educating on how to lighten, color and style curly and textured hair and Keon Washington will be exploring barbering basics and easy fade methods.

The Santiago Brothers, many may know them as individual platform artists but not know that they’re brothers. At this year’s event, attendees can experience a one-of-a-kind barber versus cosmetologist class with Carlos and Ricardo Santiago. During their fun and informative class, these two talented brothers will share their collective expertise; Carlos as a barber and Ricardo as a cosmetologist. Together they will show you how to take elements from both professions and apply them to your clients back at the shop.
Ryan Teal of the TEALs will be educating on the reality of salon life and educate on how to speed up cuts without compromising quality, compression vs. precision, and utilizing alternate tools.
