Default My local Ouidad salon has been decertified

Does anyone know what it means, or why, a former Ouidad certified salon would be de-certified?

I've heard that they are changing their structure and going over to franchises. So, I guess unless a salon buys into the franchise, they are kicked out.

Thanks, SuZen -- when I went back and read the red print at the top of their webpage, it did say that the salon was in process of applying for franchise status. I don't know how I missed that the first time.

My salon is no longer Ouidad certified too. Apparently Ouidad told them that in order to remain certified, they can carry only Ouidad products. Since they also carry other lines, they are no longer allowed to carry Ouidad.

That's messed up and from a business standpoint might end up hurting Ouidad in the end. Not everybody has the money to spend on her products.

The good news is that you still have a Ouidad-trained stylist. Who cares if they're not selling the products anymore?

Yup, she cuts my hair wonderfully. Can't style it to save her life, but it's the cut I need her to get right.

I currently do not go that Ouidad salon near me -- I've been getting my hair cut with the same HD for about 20 years now, who handles my curls and cut great every time. But I have the same exact situation as you - she cannot style my hair no matter what!

I agree - that is so messed up. SCREW Ouidad!!
I'm lucky to have found a stylist who can cut and style my hair! She styles much better than me. She's deva trained and used deva products. Even tho I don't use deva at home.
For YEARS I've gone to stylists that can cut but they couldn't style at all. They would try and style like they would a straighty. They would always blow dry without a diffuser and then use a comb -
I'm paying more now, but it's so worth it.
I started out using Ouidad products many years ago and they started out great but then my hair dried out horribly. I guess from the wheat proteins in the products.

The salon I go to stopped doing Ouidad a couple of years ago and went with Curlisto. Maybe the franchise thing is why. But like everyone said, the stylists are still Ouidad-trained.
