I am a first generation American, married father of two and a Veteran. I talked about wanting to be a barber for years while I stayed at my job to support my family. I looked for Cosmetology and/or Barber program all around the Puget Sound but none of them was flexible enough for my family’s needs. Finally, at Evergreen Beauty College I found an excellent program with flexibility and support I needed to succeed. They were able to work with my Post 9/11 G.I. Bill benefits to help me retrain the skills and get me out of uniform and boots I had been in for over 15 years. The terrific teachers and staff at Evergreen Beauty College motivated me to reach higher and, now, I’m not just a Cosmetologist/Barber I’m also a Licensed Instructor!- Jose A.
