Corporate Board of Advisors
The Corporate Baord of Advisors (CBA) is by far the most important component of The Hair Society next to the Membership. The CBA is made up of professionals both within and out of the hair industry. These indivuals are the best in their fields. We knew that when it came to selecting this CBA, we could not just appoint anyone. We had to have people who were subject matter expersts and who demonstrats a business accumen that would help propel The Hair Society to being the foremost authority within the hair space. We are confident we have accomplished this task and we are sure you will agree.
The expertise of our Corporate Board of Advisors and the specific indivuduals selcted are in an effort to advance the interests of Hair Professionals throughout the world.
