FIRST WEEK ON THE FLOOR: 2/14/12 – 351 hours – Student Designer

“First order of business, I bought some gel inserts for my shoes and have been loving life.

I am finally getting the hang of things on the salon floor… Everyone has been so helpful. Every day I get the chance to work with someone new. I have assisted some of the students who are farther along than I am and they have been amazing, gracious, and eager to teach me. I am taking a hands on role in everything that I do and have gotten tons of experience above and beyond what we learned in the classroom. I kind of miss the educational classroom sometimes and have at times felt overwhelmed but in a good way. I wake up every day excited to check my schedule and see what I’m going to be up to that day.

Each time I have a new client to work with or even my mannequin I am getting time with educators and these great tips and techniques to improve my skills. Having people with year’s and year’s experience guiding us on the floor is amazing. I am in awe of every educator and I’m not just saying that . The critiques they give are so beneficial; I’m finding a solution to every problem and a trick for every task. Overall the first week was exhausting, my brain and body need rest but I’m excited for next week.”

A DAY IN ZONE: 3/2/12 – 823 hours – Student Designer

I completed a haircut and didn’t have anything to fix on it!!! I had an amazing day today, even though it was in Zone and on a Mannequin I finished a haircut, which for me is one of my weakest areas. It made me feel… So in charge of myself and boosted my ego so far up that I could feel it coming out of my mouth! HA HA! I swear this moment of mine today was the breaking point of pure complete happiness. My instructor checked my haircut and had barely anything to correct. That’s when it hit me… I was meant for this. Sure it took me a little longer to learn than my other classmates, but I got it. Boy did I get it! That moment all in its own was enough to get me even more excited for the rest of my time at school to come.
We also went on a field trip to several salons where we can go and “extern” once we hit 960 hours. I fell in LOVE with all of them. The fact that I would be able to wake up every morning and do what I love and learn new stuff every time I have a client in my chair… MIND BLOWING!
