ARROJO Cosmetology Class 28 are now high-flying beauty school graduates; their Graduation Party & Presentation was a blockbusting, feature film-inspired show.
It took a lot of work to get there. 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 that are developed and practiced in-house at ARROJO.
Many of the skills our students learn go beyond State requirements so that they get a jump on the competition, and can start their careers with the advanced, high-level techniques that define our modern and creative approach to precision-based hairstyling.
The Graduation Party & Presentation is the students’ 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. Sharing newfound knowledge, creativity, and skill, it is time and chance for each student to shine.
So with an audience of family and friends, fellow students and staff, it was onto the show. A slick, refined, and powerful catwalk presentation brought forward each student’s model, with each look based off of a protagonist from a famous film.
Everything from the smooth and streamlined runway show to the sense of style and individuality in each look and overall concepts and themes wowed the crowd, and belied the fact that seven months ago, these Graduates never knew how to hold a comb.
As proceedings drew to a close, each of the 16 former students was presented with their hard-earned Graduation Certificate, while for the Highest Grade Point Average, Highest Retail Services, and Best Attendance, Hope Hawkins, Gabriella Knister, and Julia Guzzio each won a $350 gift certificate for continued education at the ARROJO Advanced Academy.
Honor, praise, acclaim ARROJO Cosmetology Class 28; for one and all, a bright, brilliant future awaits.
"It was a pleasure to teach all of them and I am really excited about their future endeavors. I'm proud of all their hard work and dedication and it showed in all of their graduation presentations," said class educator, Mauricio Martinez
"My favorite part of school was Graduation. It's a beautiful sight to see everything you've learned come together in your own masterpiece. There are only a few times you get to do hair according to your own liking; you have to do what your educator says or what the client wants. It was an incredibly freeing experience to do the kind of cut, color and styling I wanted to –– it’s great to push the limits a little bit. You see your true potential in that and get to test the waters in a new way,” said Hope Hawkins, winner of the highest GPA award.
