Success Stories – Cosmetology

Cosmetology Student Success Story: Katelyn Morgan

“I have always had a passion for hair and makeup since I was a young girl.  Not only do I love exploring my own creativity with hair and makeup, but I really have a passion for listening to people and helping them become their best selves – I realized it was time to put myself first and find something that I was going to enjoy doing for the rest of my life…”

Cosmetology Student Success Story: Heather Sutherland

“Originally I moved to the area due to its internationally known craft program. I was busy working on my art practice, working with other artists.” However, like so many during the Pandemic shut down, “I lost everything and realized I needed to find a more stable career without sacrificing my creativity. Looking to my art I saw the thing that made most sense; helping others and the glitz & glam…”

Cosmetology Student Success Story: Amber Ahyakak-Yazzie

“Before I enrolled in school I was a stay at home mom, who had a passion for makeup. This passion turned into me originally enrolling into the MUA program with Evergreen Beauty College. When the start date got pushed back for that particular program, I reached out to my Admissions Counselor to see if there were any other programs that had makeup incorporated in the curriculum. That’s when I got introduced to Cosmetology…”

Cosmetology Student Success Story: Cierra Phillips

“Before deciding to become a cosmetologist, I was headed towards a career in entertainment. I love singing, dancing, and making people laugh. After studying music and audio production in college, I realized I wasn’t as passionate as I thought I was. That’s when I started thinking about a different path. All aspects of beauty have always interested me, which is why I ended up enrolling into beauty school…”

Cosmetology Student Success Story: Madisen Hansen

“Before I enrolled in EBC I was looking for my path. At the beginning of the pandemic, I was laid off from my job (just like so many others) and it crushed me. I was lost, and didn’t know what road to take. Then my roommate at the time suggested cosmetology school, and a few weeks later I was enrolled. I can’t believe that one of the worst things to happen in my professional life could turn into the most amazing career I could ever imagine.”

Cosmetology Student Success Story: Laurel Berard

“I learned to cut my husband’s hair when we first met 12 years ago and during quarantine when there were no salons open, I started doing many other family members and friend’s hair. Through this experience I noticed how much I loved helping others look and feel their best as well as I truly enjoyed the creative process behind creating a look. I realized that it is never too late to pursue your dreams..”

Cosmetology Student Success Story: Cassidy Chambers

“I have always been interested in Cosmetology when I was younger. It wasn’t until I was almost completed with my first quarter at Skagit Valley College that I realized I wanted to go to school for hair instead. I started at Evergreen the following fall.” “I have heard great reviews from some past graduates which really peaked my interest. Also it helps that the Mount Vernon campus opened up…”
