We’re delighted to report that ARROJO Cosmetology Class 5 are the latest set of students to graduate from our inspirational, career-shaping curriculum.
It was achieved through study, practice, and practical application of the key elements of cosmetology: health and safety, client consultations, beauty product knowledge and usage, makeup and styling, the theory and practice of contemporary hairstyling, and advanced techniques in color and cut that emphasize a modern and creative, precision-based method.
In the shape of a Graduation Party Presentation, where each student presents one complete head-to-toe look - inclusive of overall concept or theme, styling and makeup, hair cut, color, and style - all of these skills are called into action for the final leap from student to stylist.
So with an audience of family and friends, fellow students and staff, it was on with the show. Set to a roaring DJ soundtrack, a demure, polished, and inspirational catwalk presentation gave the vision, knowledge and skill of each student time and chance to shine.
The creativity and precision of each cut and color and style was a stellar example of what can be achieved through education and inspiration. The concepts and themes showed our students to be on the pulse of fashion and trend and style. The finished looks wowed the crowd, and belied, that seven short months ago, these sixteen stars were learning the right way to shampoo hair, the correct way to hold a comb.
As events reached their conclusion, each Graduate was presented with their hard-earned Certificate, while Besarta Smailovic, for best attendance, and Samantha Diaz, for highest grade point average and highest retail service sales, were given gift certificates for continued, professional-to-professional education, at the ARROJO Advanced Academy.
By this time, there was unyielding applause, and tears in the eyes of many students and family and staff, so it was left to Nick Arrojo to deliver the closing speech:
“This is the start of your professional cosmetology career. Whatever path you take, whatever dreams and ambitions you want to make real, remember that continued education is what will sustain you. Focus on improving your work every day and lasting success, a prosperous and rewarding career, will never be far away. Think big, never stop learning, and all of your dreams will come true,” he said.
