How does this water make you feel?

Why 2023?

I know it seems so far away. Given the past year or so things have not been what you would call normal circumstances. Wouldn't you say?
I wanted to see how things are going now that ships have resumed sailing. This also gives a buffer in case things change.

2023 will give time for us to connect, reconnect and build a stronger relationships. You will get to know each other. Interact with the group and upcoming activities. It's not just about getting every on the ship.
You will also have time to Get to Know Your admins Brad & Janie.

Your Admins
Brad Poirier ~ Cruise Event Captain

Hi my name is Brad, AKA B Rad Celebrity Hairstylist. I started in the beauty industry at 14 as a make-up artist in Theater. Then later became a hairstylist and multi salon owner. My driving force has always been education and amazing client experience. Now with a few decades of experience behind me I have been part of it all photo shoots, music video shoots, film, stage, runway, competition stylist, judge, guest speaker, television host, passion4pinup.com, product and apparel line, business coach, brand ambassador, platform artist, author and educator.

Now taking all my experience I host a podcast called the Hairstylist Empowerment Podcast.

To Empower others by your spoken word. Being the change. Creating the change while making a difference. Hairstylists and beauty industry professionals sharing their stories of trials, tribulations and triumphs. Letting their voices be heard by hairstylists helping hairstylists around the globe.

Being part of a community mean giving back to the community. Hairstylists of Hope is my passion. Hairstylists of Hope are Leaders and Visionaries for a brighter future. Commitment to safer salons, practices & equality for all. Where people can feel safe all around the world!! I created a line of apparel and accessories to unite hairstylists around the world in a common goal. No matter how tough things get we always have and can give hope. In business you should know every aspect. In my book A to Z of Professional Self Care it shows you the one main area we often neglect...Ourselves. How can we be 100% for everyone else when we are running on empty ourselves. This book addresses that as well as fine tuning other areas of your life.

My area of expertise/passion is Vintage, Pin Up & Era work which I am frequently called upon for productions. I specialize in the "all thumbs" artist and designed to make the impossible possible. With proven quick techniques you can have hair up in a matter of seconds using only as little as one pin. Even thick long hair will last all night long. If you read this far thank you. I would love and adore to see in a class and join on your journey. Hone your skills and the best expert you can.

Let's Connect!
