Happy days, good times, and great hair! The latest Class to Graduate from students to stylists at ARROJO Cosmetology School put on a remarkable presentation of modern texture trends for their educators and mentors, friends and family.
The students' Graduation Day is a chance for students to show off their new skills while becoming accustomed to presenting their work to an audience, an important part of life as a modern creative hairdresser. Each Graduate must display one model that reflects the student's newfound technical and creative scope, and their own artistic interpretation of an era or theme, which is chosen by and for the entire group.
Fitting with this season's runway fashion and beauty trends, the chosen theme was texture. The runway presentation showed a variety of wow-factor looks with trendy tousle and flow. Expanded shapes, tight curls, big volume were all on show as Class 45 put forth a high octane presentation, creatively set to video and music.
After the show, an inspirational speech by ARROJO Studio General Manager Nuala Guildea told the students, “This is the beginning, not the end. Work hard, think big, continue to learn and grow, and all your dreams will come true. And remember, wherever you go, whatever you do, you will always be part of the ARROJO family. Welcome to the industry –– congratulations!”
