From the fashion industry to the beauty industry, Marlo has always had a passion for wanting to make people feel beautiful. She started as a student at ARROJO Cosmetology and is now a cutting apprentice at the flagship SoHo salon. We caught up with Marlo to learn more about her experience as a student and to gain some insight as to what it takes to work at ARROJO studio.
How did you become interested in the beauty industry?
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a fascination with the beauty industry. When I moved to NYC, I worked as a fashion stylist. I loved making clients feel beautiful and be able to express themselves, but I kept wanting more. When my sister chose to make hair styling her career, it seemed like a natural fit. I dove in head first and haven’t looked back.
Why did you choose ARROJO Cosmetology School?
I chose ARROJO Cosmetology School because of its boutique feel. Their education transcended the typical state board requirements. I loved going to school in the flagship salon and really felt immersed in the salon environment, which was a constant motivator for me. Choosing ARROJO ignited my passion for the craft of hairdressing from my very first day.
Is there anything that stands out in your mind about your experience here?
The thing that stands out the most is how serious ARROJO Cosmetology School is about student education. The teachers love what they do, and truly care about your success. The education surpassed my standards and left me wanting a taste of what of life as a stylist in the ARROJO studio salon. Now I am so proud to work at the flagship SOHO studio.
What is your favorite new skill?
My favorite thing about my ARROJO education is that from the very beginning of my career, my standard has been set super HIGH. I can only continue to get better!
Any advice you can share with current or prospective students?
My advice would be to take your career choice seriously, set goals for yourself along the way and most importantly have fun!
What did you do after graduation, and where are you working now?
Shortly after graduation I joined the Arrojo Studio SOHO team as a cutting apprentice.
