Growing up, Jennifer loved doing her sister’s hair and makeup. When it was time to choose a career, cosmetology seemed like a natural fit. Fast forward a few years, Jennifer has graduated from ARROJO Cosmetology School and is now a part of the ARROJO Williamsburg team. We caught up with her to talk about her cosmo school experience and her beginnings as a hairdresser.
How did you become interested in the beauty industry?
My favorite game growing up was “Hair Salon.” I always loved to do my sister's hair and makeup. As I got older, I realized that I could translate that into a career.
Why did you choose ARROJO Cosmetology School?
I did my research and I read nothing but amazing reviews so I decided to come in and check it out. I could feel the energy the minute I walked in. Seeing the bustling salon full of clients and stylists really made me feel like I could have a future here. I knew this was the school I wanted to go to.
Is there anything that stands out in your mind about your experience here?
The education! Of course, you are learning state board but the knowledge of the instructors goes so much further than that. They really go the extra mile to make sure that you understand. Then after you graduate, you can continue your education through their salon training program and move your way up through the levels until becoming a Master Stylist.
What is your favorite new skill?
Razor Cutting is my favorite skill right now! I’m really refining my technique and learning how to perfect the shag haircut.
Any advice you can share with current or prospective students?
Stay motivated and continue to practice your craft. You can never stop learning!
What did you do after graduation, and where are you working now?
I knew I wanted to work at ARROJO after my first week in cosmetology school. After graduation, I went in for an interview and I am so thrilled to be a part of the ARROJO Williamsburg Team!
