Review of ‘The Real Hair Truth’ from Shear Miracles

The Real Hair Truth, Volume 1 by Joseph Kellner

The Real Hair Truth is the first documentary that I have seen in my 20 years of being in the beauty industry that has portrayed many of the thoughts and feelings about the hair business that I have had for many years. If you are a hair dresser, salon owner or thinking about becoming involved in the industry, please watch this film with a positive open mind. Although on the surface, this documentary may be taken as negative about the hair industry, it is not. Our industry is at a turning point in our country. No longer is becoming a hair dresser associated with those individuals that are considered “not college material” or for those who don’t know what they want to do with their future. According to one of The Real Hair Truth’s contributors, Eric Charles Mokotoff, an accomplished hair dresser, educator, and colorist, “it is a profession of art, science, psychology, creativity, fashion, beauty, trend, media and well-being.” Joseph Kellner, a successful hair dresser and make-up artist of over 20 years, is calling for a positive change at the appropriate time. This is exciting to me! He covers many different topics including practical advice on being a successful hair dresser, how to look for the right salon to start in, the necessity of apprenticeship, the importance of continuing education, booth renting verses commission based salon programs and salaries, hair shows, maufacturer based beauty school education, and so much more. Please buy this film, pass it on, put into practice what you learn and become part of the change. (Plus, Joseph donates a portion of the proceeds from this documentary to go to continuing education for hair dressers that cannot afford it!)

Donna Pederson’s Biography:

I grew up, the youngest of eleven children, in Massachusetts. I loved going with my mother to her weekly salon visits. I was fascinated watching the stylists manipulate hair into works of art. It made sense to me. I knew that’s what I wanted to do.

I went to the local Vocational, Technical High School, (much to my father’s chagrin) to pursue Cosmetology. I was fortunate to have talented instructors who taught me the importance of perfecting my basics, and practice, practice, PRACTICE.

After apprenticing and working as a stylist in Boston for 8 years, I made the move to Florida. As a Master Colorist, I live and work in an area that lets me practice my craft to my fullest extent.

I love what I do. I feel privileged and honored to be a part of our industry.
