One of the most important reasons why Teddies has been a success is through the rigorous training program that he presents to his staff of hairdressers.  Teddie Kossof prides himself for the fact that it has, over the years, had a track record for developing world-class hairdressers.  Teddies approach, it’s about the individual, Teddie does not believe in “cookie-cutting”, every hairdresser needs to express their own way of cutting & designing hair.  That’s why Teddie hires hairdressers that are young to the industry, it does not matter what age, what matters is that they get their start @ Teddie Kossof. 

The training program is a hands-on experience, young stylists, called Teddies Trimmers are groomed as they perfect their skills…working in a group setting & one on one with Teddie, his Master Hair Designers and with advanced education provided by the salon through its relationships with manufacturers.  Our performance and success are dependent on the education we provide our staff.  One on one reviews & mentoring play a huge role in the development our stylists as well, we customize each relationship.

The education process never stops.  Teddie Kossof, is able to bring world-class hairdressers from around the world into the salon – for the benefit of further developing the staff, this allows each stylist to continue to be a leader in their field.  The end result is a clientele that comes to Teddie Kossof because they know that a stylist from Teddie Kossof has more to offer than your typical hairdresser.
