We are proud and happy to announce that Class 41 are now high-flying graduates. Their Graduation Party & Presentation was one helluva bumping show! But it wasn't on the alter of luck; during their 7-month curriculum, these stylists studied and scrutinized, practiced and mastered each discipline of modern creative hairdressing, making a set of consummate professionals who were able to produce a stand-out show.
Many of the skills our students learn, like razor cutting and hair painting, go beyond State Board requirements. We believe this gives our students a jump on the competition, so they can start their careers with the advanced, high-minded techniques that defines a modern and creative approach to precision-based hairstyling.
The Graduation Party & Presentation is the students’ apotheosis of all this hard study, practice, and practical application of the Cosmetology Curriculum. Each student presents one complete 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.
Themed around putting a twist on the classics the smooth and streamlined runway show, the sense of style and individuality in each look, the creativity and precision of every cut and color and style wowed the crowd, and belied the fact that seven months ago, new professionals never knew how to hold a comb.
