With two locations and a continuously growing brand, we’ve grown our team as well! Meet our Admissions Coordinators: Katelyn and Karess.
Katelyn hails from New Jersey with 10 years in the beauty industry. She spent 9 years as a stylist, assisting several seasons at Fashion Week and specializing in bridal hair. While working at an ARROJO Ambassador salon, Katelyn fell in love with the ARROJO brand and eventually decided to step out from behind the chair and help newcomers in the industry find their path. Now the Admissions and Education Coordinator of our SoHo location, Katelyn loves helping future and current hairstylists chose the best education for their needs.
“The hairdressing industry is exciting, creative, independent, and full of opportunity,” says Katelyn. “After being behind the chair for a decade I am now realizing my passion to help others find their path. Working at ARROJO means I can direct our graduates to any field of the industry with total confidence. I love making a positive impact on ambitious stylists with a dream in their heart.”
A Delaware transplant, now residing in Brooklyn, Karess is a licensed cosmetologist that enjoys meeting new people and finding ways to express her creativity. After spending some time in the salon, she went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Gender Studies. Karess has always had a strong desire to help others achieve their goals, so when the opportunity to work as the Admissions Coordinator in TriBeCa presented itself, she knew it would be the perfect career.
“I’ve been behind the chair, and then on to academia and back,” says Karess. Through these experiences I came to understand my place is to help others maximize their potential. At ARROJO, I feel we have all the systems in place to graduate some of the most skillful and creative stylists around. That makes working with them to find their perfect career an inspiring challenge that must be met. We are working to elevate the industry, raise perceptions of the craft, and give creatives a career that they’ll love. We’re on a mission and it is great to be a part of it.”
