Request to join our email list to stay current with shows & Il law

Do it with passion or not at all

Illinois Cosmetology Law requires 14 hours of continuing education every 2 years for Cosmetologists. ALL COSMETOLOGISTS are REQUIRED to provide proof of Continuing Education. No one is exempt, or grandfathered into this new law.

By law you are required to take 7 hours of live hair show classes and if you wish, you are able to earn the remaining 7 hours of continuing education by completing home study courses.

Meet Becca & Katie who make it all happen… 


Becca Gonzales

Becca is the mastermind behind ALL the business matters. Registration guru, certificate processor, records keeper, the voice behind the returned phone messages, the hands behind the emails, so on and so forth, & a true partner in crime. K.Samuel is fueled by Becca’s dedication, commitment, and her love for her crazy sister who roped her into this company as her right hand gal many years ago.


Katie Jager

Katie is the dreamer and schemer behind K.Samuel Educations In Hair.  The hairstylist who just can’t  get enough of her industry and well,  just can’t live without sharing the knowledge she collects on a daily basis for all of you. She refers to herself as a “Hair Nerd” due to her addiction to seeking out all and any education she can soak up. With the passion to jump over any hurdle that comes her way, she is determined to bring the very best of herself, her staff, and bring out the best in everyone she meets.
