Cosmo Prof’s New Iconic Blonde Event Wants to Help Stylists Improve Their Blonding and Bonding Techniques


If you’re a stylist that’s been hoping to take your blonding and bonding skills to the next level, Cosmo Prof has totally got you covered!

The pro beauty distributor will be hosting its first-ever blonding and bonding focused virtual event, Iconic Blonde, on July 17th. With the increasing demand for diverse blonding options, this event fills a crucial gap in the market for licensed pros who are hoping to keep their services competitive. 

Iconic Blonde’s curriculum has been meticulously designed to incorporate top experts from industry-leading brands such as amika, Joico, Moroccanoil, Nu Standard, OLAPLEX, PRAVANA, Rusk, and WELLA. Each will join the event to share their latest products, unique insights into new blonding techniques, and the importance of bonding. Attendees can expect classes that touch on topics such as:

  • Matrix, Blonde Genius: Blonding is not one-size-fits-all. Educators will review classic and modern blonding formulas, tips, and techniques for creating envious blondes. Stylists will learn about common blonding mistakes and how to avoid them.
  • Ouidad, Carefully Colored Curls: A simplified approach to providing clients an introduction to blonding while preserving the integrity of their curls. Attendees will learn how to properly prescribe Ouidad Home Care and treatments.
  • Nu Standard, Restoring Hair Wellness for Traumatized Blondes: Maintaining the hair’s health after the stress of the blonding process is challenging, especially for textured hair. Professionals will learn how the Hydrasilk Hydrating Bond System can level up their haircare services through a wellness bonding experience for eager clients seeking healthier-looking blonde curls.

“As we enter our first year with Iconic Blonde, we are excited to create a new legacy event that will tie into our other impactful education moments, such as Color the World and World of Texture — which both saw high attendance this past year,” shared April Holt, Group Vice President of Cosmo Prof Stores. “The blonding and bonding categories are growing rapidly. We want to equip stylists with the knowledge, tools, and the latest techniques to hone their skills.”

Iconic Blonde will be hosted by two of Cosmo Prof’s Artistic Team Members, Presley Poe and Jon Carlos De La Cruz —both specialists when it comes to creative hair coloring and style transformations. They will be joined by special guest, WELLA Hair Ambassador and hairstylist Briana Cisneros, who has over 18+years of experience in the hairstyling industry and is known for making an impact through her technical mastery and unique artistic approach. 

Shaping up to be the fastest-selling virtual event that Cosmo Prof has hosted, Iconic Blonde has already reached record-breaking numbers with its ticket sales. And in case you need any more convincing to attend this incredible event, in certain states, attendance of select classes will provide professionals the ability to earn valuable Continuing Education (CEU) hours. Plus, stylists will have access to the curriculum two weeks after the event for continued learning.
