Hairdressers are in a serious state of confusion as they are constantly bombarded by companies trying to win their loyalty to support their brands. More often than not, they see platform educators showcasing amazing looks that inspire hairdressers to win them over. The reality is, once hairdressers have bought into their program, very little of the education they saw will actually help them as a stylist behind the chair.
Therefore hairdressers are not sure really what to do or where to start or how to continue building an amazing career. Cocco Tools and Jin Bang, Director of Education, have teamed up to offer an educational experience that will GUARANTEE hairdressers more money behind the chair.

THE Cocco TEAM
MEET THE DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION & THE INTERNATIONAL ARTISTIC TEAM
JIN BANG, Director of Education
Originally from Washington DC, Jin Bang has taught cutting edge styling techniques in over 75 cities across North America. From New York to Los Angeles, and in European cities such as London and Barcelona, Jin has left his mark on the industry in every corner of the world. In doing so, he has also had the opportunity to represent industry giants such as Pr @Partners (Washington DC), Bumble and Bumble (New York), Neuma Beauty (Carson, CA), Privé Laurent D. (Los Angeles), LuxHair Tabatha Coffey (Beverly Hills), Toni and Guy (London, Paris and NYC).
Jin Bang began his career in 1998 at the early age of 15. He was scouted and picked up as an apprentice at Pr @Partners with well known colorist, MichaelHandsinger and London’s best stylist, Sean Stredwick. During this time he also perfected his techniques under the tutelage of Vidal Sassoon and Toni and Guy Concepts.
BEN MOLLIN, International Artistic Team
"Hair was always something which allowed me to work in three dimension and allowed me to develop an understanding of anatomy" he recalls. At 21, he owned and operated his first salon and has been a gypsy of sorts playing in different bands and working on photo shoots, movies and runways along the way.
In 2007, the debut of "Shear Genius," Bravo - TV's reality competition for hairdressers, one of the genuine surprises was Ben Mollin. The tattooed, music-loving stylist was eccentric and humble. Exhibiting an eagerness to learn and a passion for his craft, Sally Hershberger and Vidal Sassoon commended Ben for his raw talent and his growth over the course of the competition. And grow he did, right into the number two spot, taking second place and outdistancing the thousands of other stylists who auditioned.
Ben is a international guest artist and is recognized all over the world. He hosts and judges The Supreme Salon Tour "Hairwars." Ben is in demand for personal appearances, video projects and more. Featured in "50 Hairstylists," a book featuring the fifty most influential hairdressers in the country, Ben's passion and raw talent for his craft has turned him into one of the most exciting innovative hairdressers in the industry.
