Looking for a way to channel her creativity into a lucrative and rewarding career, Sydney set her sights on ARROJO Cosmetology School. After graduation, she spent some time working in-salon, but ultimately her passion for creative hairdressing & helping others reach their full potential led her right back to ARROJO Cosmetology School where she is now the Director of Admissions. We caught up with Sydney to hear more about her experience on the other side of admissions, being a cosmo student.
How did you become interested in the beauty industry?
I have always been creative and was looking for a practical way to make money from my ability to create. I decided hair would be a new and exciting medium.
Why did you choose ARROJO Cosmetology School?
After touring few other local schools, I quickly realized that the education and opportunities for advancement at ARROJO couldn’t be matched. Being able to see the bustle of the TriBeCa salon every day also was also a huge motivator. Seeing what all my hard work would eventually amount to helped me push myself to be the best I could be.
Is there anything that stands out in your mind about your experience here?
The best part was learning advanced techniques. I thoroughly enjoyed delving deeper into classic cuts, especially with the razor.
What is your favorite new skill?
My favorite skills are various styling techniques and razor cutting.
Any advice you can share with current or prospective students?
Your teachers are your best tool. USE THEM! The teachers at ARROJO have so much real life experience, from major ad campaigns to Fashion Weeks abroad. The best part is they genuinely want to see you succeed. Ask them anything and they will guide and mentor you until you are where you want to be.
I personally believe this is the best education you can get in the industry. Why not start now?
What did you do after graduation, and where are you working now?
After graduating, I gained some salon experience and then took some time off to explore other industries. During my time away I realized how much I learned at ARROJO, about cosmetology and about life. Ultimately, my passion for helping others reach their full potential led me back and I’m now working in Admissions at ARROJO Cosmetology School.
