Best Beauty Schools in Washington State


Beauty School Graduates being funnyWhich Beauty Schools are the best in Washington State? Who can really answer that question?  Everyone has different needs and goals in earning their cosmetology, esthetics and nail tech license.

I can’t tell you which school is the best, but I can share with you about this last beauty school graduation ceremony at Evergreen Beauty College on October 27th, 2013 that was some of the best moments for our graduates.

With record highs of about 700 family and friends at the beautiful Lynnwood Convention Center cheering on their graduates, it was a red carpet event not to miss. With photographers, videographers, jazz band and entertainment, Evergreen Beauty College graduates celebrated in style and was aired on the local radio station Movin 92.5.

Top 5 best moments for our beauty school students:

1. Over 90% of graduates attended

A typical beauty school student finishes their hours, clocks out in front of her friends and that is how they finish their schooling. Other schools will host ceremonies inside their schools or rent an outside venue a couple times a year and have 25 or 30 students out of the year show up. At our graduation ceremonies that happen 3 times a year, almost all students who have already graduated come back to walk and celebrate this special moment because it is that special.

2. Commencement Speaker was CEO of a $1 Billion Beauty Company sharing her secrets to success

Evergreen Beauty College flew in Rhoda Olsen, CEO of the Great Clips company to share her success stories to inspire their graduates a road of success.

3. Networking Opportunity with Local and National salons/spas/barbershops

There were nearly 30 owners and managers representing their companies to support Evergreen Graduates and looking to hire. Julep Nail Parlor was awarded “Excellence in Education” award by president of Evergreen Beauty College Joe Trieu for their continued support in advance education for their students while in school.

4. Family and Friends

As large as the graduation ceremony was, it felt so intimate as graduates had their 30 seconds on stage to thank their family and friends but also a closing video of the family and friends congratulating and sharing personal stories about their graduates.

5. Graduating from Beauty School was a Big Deal

Beauty School is a big deal and needs to be made a bigger deal. What other beauty school rents a convention center for their graduation and host this kind of event. Driving up the convention center on their reader board “Evergreen Beauty College Graduation” sends a statement to the community that something big is happening inside the convention center. Many parents shared, “I had no idea how big this was but so happy I did not miss this”.

In closing, I don’t think anyone can tell you which beauty school is the best. But if you ask any graduates, they can always share with you some of the best moments in beauty school. And at Evergreen Beauty College, graduations is always one of the top moments. Not only because it is one great big party with job opportunities, but all the hard work and struggles a beauty school student goes through is what makes that moment so special and your family wants to be there to celebrate it with you. Beauty does change lives, not only in the chair but for the lives behind the chair as well. Share with us your best beauty school moment.
