SALEM, N.H. — On Aug. 19, Dianne Larose and Isabel Ciano of Absolute Elegance Salon in Salem, N.H., passed all three phases of the American Board of Certified Haircolorists (ABCH) exam to become master haircolorists. Larose and Ciano are currently the only hairstylists in Salem, N.H. and the surrounding communities that are board certified master haircolorists. The board conducts a stringent three phase exam that requires a candidate to be well prepared and highly qualified in hair color. A candidate must pass a 250 question test, a hands on performance of specific color tasks, and an interactive portion that tests the effective skills of various hair color challenges. The ABCH establishes a standard by which to judge competence and to acknowledge the level of excellence achieved in hair color. Larose and Ciano will offer support and share their knowledge with aspiring hair colorists to mentor any stylist who is interested in taking the ABCH examination.
