Demonstration of Skills - Rich Task

Sabreena Cheema at Fiorio

DATE & TIME: Wednesday May, 11th 2016 Around 4pm

Description of Activity:
Completing shampoo & conditioner hair wash along with a smooth blow-dry.

The wash and blow-dry are two main essential skills needed when working as an assistant at any hair salon, specifically at the Fiorio Salon. The wonderful services allow for a complementary head massage, wash and beautiful and elegant blow-dry.


The reason I chose to teach you this skill is because it is one of the most important skills I have learned. It gave me a base to further sculpt and create my own unique blow-dry. It also allowed for me to grow as an assistant by working and learning on different hair types. The longer I worked on this skill the more I have been able to perfect it. I think of it as a very valuable skill and would love to pass on the knowledge of how to perform a smooth blow-dry.


Step 1: Kindly ask client to put on a Fiorio Shmock
Step 2: Rinse the clients hair with water at the sinks
Step 3: Use shampoo that is suited for the hair of the client (For example: Fiorio Clarifying shampoo for dirty hair) and apply to the mid shift and scalp
Step 4: After two shampoos, rinse the excess water and place a hot towel under the clients neck for a more relaxing wash
Step 5: Use conditioner that is suited for the hair of the client, and apply on the ends of the hair
Step 6: With the remaining conditioner, massage the clients head for 2 minutes
Step 7: Thoroughly rinse the hair and wrap it into a towel turban
Step 8: Walk the client to the blow-dry station
Step 9: Pre-dry the hair and comb through with required products (For example: De-tangler)
Step 10: Section the hair using clips
Step 11: Blow dry the hair using a round brush
