ARROJO Cosmetology Class 29 are now the latest all-star beauty school graduates; their Graduation Party & Presentation, inspired by ancient civilizations, was one for the ages...
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.
“I thought the class did an amazing job interpreting the theme of Ancient Civilizations. To take a culture from 2000 years ago and translate it to a modern day style was really inspiring. It just goes to show you inspiration can come from anywhere and everything. This entire class raised the bar.” –– Gina Arrojo, School Director
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.
“Out of all the classes I have taught, this one really took the fundamental techniques they have learned to the next level. They truly progressed at an exponential pace. I found every single student extremely inspiring.” –– Pia Vivas, Class 29 Lead Educator
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.
“I loved how the program was super interactive. This made the content interesting and engaging. I liked how the time was split between the classroom and the student salon floor.” –– Abbi Williams, Graduate Class 29
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.
The ARROJO program is a rewarding educational experience. Nick Arrojo has created an institution that sets a new standard for the cosmetology world. I feel both honored and grateful that I could be a part of the new perspective that is being created for the professional outlook of cosmetologists around the world. The educators are highly trained individuals who admire and respect their craft and I could not be happier to have enrolled at and graduated from ARROJO. –– Alexander O'Neill, Graduate Class 29
As proceedings drew to a close, each of the former students was presented with their prized Graduation Certificate, while for the Highest Grade Point Average and Highest Retail Services Abbi Williams won a $700 gift certificate for continued education at the ARROJO Advanced Academy; for best attendance Tetiana Siemashko won a $350 gift certificate of the same kind.
Class 29, you did us proud –– congratulations! May all your dreams come true.
