Travel broadens the mind,” so the proverb says. Indeed, when you travel to a new place and meet new people, you learn, you grow, you change. Professionals thrive on change – experimenting, learning, growing, and soaring to new professional heights.

So January 13-20, 2018 get ready to take-off with Joico and company for their “Global Destination Education 2018” (#DestinationJoi2018) on the shores of Punta Cana, Dominican Republic! JOIning them will be a fantastic line-up of world-class talent from all over the globe, and at the top of this list, paragons Vivienne Mackinder and Tracey Hughes. The iconic hairstylists will be two of an amazing group of talented artists set to grace the stage at Joico’s Global Destination Education in Punta Cana.

Vivienne, who led a team of Joico stylists from the U.S. and Canada in creating the hair looks for Malan Breton’s fashion show at NYFW Sp/Su ‘17 will be a headliner at Destination Education. As an inspiration to many hairstylists, Vivienne is no stranger to big stages nor the spotlight, having been a 7-time NAHA winner and Fashion Director for Intercoiffure Canada-America, and worked with the likes of Katie Couric, Ricky Martin, and Vivienne Westwood, to name only a few.

If that name wasn’t enough to draw a crowd, Joico also tapped the talents of renowned hairstylist Tracey Hughes. The highly sought-after hairstylist –who’s been a 4-time Educator of the Year, 2-time Hairdresser & Colorist of the Year, has won the Excellence in Education award 4 times, and is an Australian Masters Inductee– will definitely rouse attendees’ enthusiasm.

Those going to #DestinationJoi2018 can expect to attend classes with Tracey and Vivienne on hairstyling and cutting techniques, as well as career/business-building and motivational seminars. Both artists will be sharing the JOI-ful news on their websites, viviennemackinder.com and traceyhughes.com.au and through their social media platforms, where fans can also look out for special opportunities, like a chance to win an exclusive experience with Vivienne while at Destination Education!

With Tracey, Vivienne, plus a slew of Joico’s celebrity and top artists all live and in person to teach the techniques that clients want, guests will experience “the joi of learning” throughout the entire week of education. These top artists and industry icons will include some of your favorite social media stars and celebrity artists like colorist Denis de Souza (Olivia Wilde, Zoe Saldana, Milla Kunis, Emily VanCamp, Nicole Richie, Lucy Hale) and celebrity hairstylist Paul Norton (Gina Rodriguez, Robin Wright, Brooke Shields, Adrian Brody) along with other top industry talent like the multi-award winning David Murray (4x Irish Hairdresser of the Year, 3x Best of the Best Awards, International Creative Champion), and TV-breakout star Ben Mollin (Shear Genius).

In the coming months Joico will continue to add MORE AMAZING TALENT and SOCIAL MEDIA ALL-STARS to its roster as it’s set to map-out 7 days of extraordinary jam-packed education – showcasing everything from top techniques and trending hair looks in style, cut and color, to ways of increasing your business and developing your social media savoir fair, no matter what your starting level.
