Ever wonder what makes for a successful top stylist at ARROJO? After graduating from our cosmetology school and acing our apprentice training program, Zoe began working at Soho and has solidified herself as a crucial part of our color team. Zoe reflects back on her experience at cosmo school and offers inspiring advice for prospective students.
How did you become interested in the beauty industry?
The beauty industry has always fascinated me. There is nothing like the magic that hairdressers can create, and I'm not just talking about hair. The confidence and happiness we can help people have after a cut and/or color is why I love it!
Why did you choose ARROJO Cosmetology School?
Arrojo chose me! There is really no comparison to the quality of education you can get with ARROJO. I was actually a client before I enrolled in the school. While I was in getting a haircut one day my now mentor Nuala, the salon manager, mentioned the new cosmetology school and I never looked back.
Is there anything that stands out in your mind about your experience here?
A moment that I will never forget was when it all clicked for me— I was finally doing the profession I was meant to do and becoming the person I wanted to be. The realization that childhood dreams can come true is the most memorable part of the whole experience.
What is your favorite new skill?
AMERICAN WAVE BABY! I pushed myself to perfect this skill and opened a whole new creative outlet that my clients love. You can't beat that!
Any advice you can share with current or prospective students?
Have an open mind. The skill set you’re learning will open more and more doors to new experiences that you may have never knew existed before. Also, most importantly, never forget that feeling when you first realized you love doing hair.
What did you do after graduation, and where are you working now?
After graduation I was so eager to learn and push myself more. I started working at the salon within the month I graduated. I'm now a Top colorist at ARROJO Studio Soho.
