In addition to being the premier continuing education company in Nebraska, Ignite The Industry is also a boutique distributor of professional  beauty products and tools. dba  Ignite Beauty Supply, they are the exclusive Nebraska distributor of REF Stockholm Sweden, Crack Hair Care, Enzo Milano Tools, Onstage Extensions,  Symphony Shears and Framar Color Accessories.  Rachel Scott- Director of Sales and Salon Support for over 5 years for Ignite, has helped salons grow and expand their retail business while building lasting relationships with the stylists she serves.

Stylists who attend an Ignite The Industry show will have the opportunity to not only learn from the top educators in the state, but also shop premier products to bring back to their salon.

***Class starts at 9:00 with doors opening at 8:30 am. When we break for lunch- those that are signed up for 4 hours will get their certificate and be finished for the day. Those who are staying for more than 4 hours will return for the afternoon session at 1:30 pm. 

Our lunch break is from 12:45pm-1:30 pm. The Finish Line Restaurant will offer a lunch option (at the training site) that you can sign up and pay for on the day of class. If you prefer to leave for lunch- that is totally fine. We just like for you to have the option to stay on location during your lunch break.
