ARROJO Cosmetology Class 30 are now the latest beauty school graduates; their Graduation presentation, was inspired by fashion designers and was runway ready.
During the seven-month curriculum, Undergraduates study everything from health and safety to client consultations to beauty product knowledge and usage to makeup and styling to the theory and practice of contemporary hairstyling and all the related sciences to advanced techniques in color and cut and styling that are developed and practiced in-house at ARROJO.
Many of the skills our students learn go beyond State requirements, meaning that our students start their careers with skills that define our world-renowned approach to modern and creative precision-based hairstyling.
"Class 30 pulled inspiration from fashion design and runway and I think they put on a great show! Their inspirations ranged from a Vivian Westwood tribute to the grunge era, an updo inspired by Alexander McQueen's last runway show to custom-made outfits by up and coming designers who attended the graduation for support. I really can’t wait to see each one of them in the industry." –Lead Educator, Angelica Laudiero
The Graduation Party & Presentation is the students’ celebratory apotheosis of the hard study, practice, and practical application of the Curriculum.
Each student presents one complete head-to-toe look, inclusive of overall concept or theme, styling and makeup, hair cut, color, and style. It is the perfect time for students to shine.
"Attending ARROJO was the best decision I made going forward in my career. I will never forget the support and encouragement from my educators and my classmates. " -Akemie Lew
With an packed audience of family and friends, fellow students and staff, the show began with a slick catwalk presentation that brought forward each student’s model, with each style inspired by a different feature or person in the ancient world.
The smooth and streamlined runway show and sense of style and individuality in each look and overall concept wowed the crowd, and proved a testament to the quality of education our students –– who don’t know how to properly hold a comb when they begin –– receive.
As proceedings drew to a close, each of the former students was presented with their prized Graduation Certificate, while $350 gift certificates for continued education at the ARROJO Advanced Academy were handed out to the following, for Highest GPA, Akemie Lew, for Highest Retail, Johanna Bolanos, and for Best Attendance, Mallory Passione.
Class 30, you did us proud –– congratulations! May all your dreams come true.
