The Ripple Effect styling principle is based on the understanding that the foundation of your hair is connected to your next move. These connections stretch like an incredibly interwoven and complicated tapestry. Thoughts of my class are like a stone dropping in a pond that creates ripples throughout your career.

"Passionate-Knowledgeable-Teacher these are just a few words that come to mind at the mention of Evie Peterson's name. Her incredible knowledge is easily transferred because of her willingness to share it, and her devotion to her craft and audience. Evie's down to earth approach to education is refreshing. Evie is able to activate any audience while sharing many salon ideas and secrets to success. She is a pleasure to work with and a true crowd pleaser. I highly recommend Evie Peterson for any educational event.

Evie has taught me how to be a professional in the salon while still rocking out my talents behind the chair. If you are at all interested in advanced cutting techniques, simple quick tips, social skills (and everything in between!) she is your girl!

_I am Brendaliz Pagan and I had the opportunity to have Evie Rivera-Peterson as an educator in a Luxury Finishing class for editorial photos in NYC. I loved the experience, she always gave me suggestions and valuable recommendations. The thing I liked most about her class were the braiding ideas and the hot tips that she gave us. Evie Rivera-Peterson is super energetic and positive. _

    On going Education for your salon is one of the greatest financial decisions you will make. That's why I have carefully cultivated all of the education that I have received. Helping to ensure that all of your educational goals, both short- and long-term are met. We work in an industry where 10 percent of stylist will not be in the business a year from now. In stark contrast to this fact, I have been driving deep roots in the industry for over a decade.
