Diary of a Cosmetology Student, Part 4

Every year the owners of Evergreen Beauty College sent a Barber Shop Quartet to all the campuses to sing to the students and staff!

This last month of school has flown by! We’ve been busier than usual and hair cutting month has been a challenge. Anyone who has ever had a bad hair cut can agree, that getting a hair cut can be stressful. Turns out that giving one is even more so! There is a lot to learn in a short amount of time and keeping up was harder for me than I thought it would be.

 At first I struggled with getting the techniques right, but it all started to make sense pretty quickly. I’m still a little nervous with hair cutting, but I have gotten better with practice and I know that with time I will improve even more. We had to do our test outs on models, and both my men’s cut, and women’s cut turned out perfectly! I was so anxious for nothing, because once I started the test out I felt really comfortable and it went much smoother than I could have hoped for. Seeing the models react to their new hair was amazing! It felt so rewarding to see how happy they were, I am so proud to be responsible for people feeling great!

I’m finished with back class now, which means I am going to start taking clients soon out on the salon floor. I am so excited to really start putting everything we have been learning and practicing to use! I can’t wait to get more experience, build relationships with clientele, and really get my career started!
