Today’s Spotlight is on Joel, he recently joined Coba and is thrilled to be out on the salon floor getting his hands-on training. Join us in getting to know Joel and checkout his video demo!

Why did you choose Coba?

First, I liked the look of the school, and second, the location- I love the Orange Circle it’s an awesome location! When I was researching other schools, I noticed they didn’t quite have the hands-on experience and the personal attention that the instructors here at Coba have. Plus the entire staff is extremely friendly and I’m loving the great camaraderie.

How did you discover your passion for beauty?

My passion for beauty? …[laughs]… I blame my mom for that. Well, just the fact of growing up being a musician and having to look stylish and professional at the same time always put my head into what was current and fashionable at the time, so it’s always been something I’ve always thought about doing.

What advice can you share with potential students who still have their doubts about starting their cosmetology career?

Do away with those doubts, you can definitely find something in yourself to have your personal expression in cosmetology, no one really does a cookie-cutter service, everybody has their unique style of doing hair, nails or makeup.

Lastly, where do you see yourself in five years?

In a salon, with a bunch of friends that I enjoy being around with, and with a great clientele. Maybe by then I’ll have an assistant and I will be able to teach!

Coba Student Spotlight – Hailey

Today’s Spotlight is on Hailey, she is soon to graduate and is very excited to see where the beauty industry will take her. Checkout what she demos in our video today.

 

What did you like best about Coba?

Smaller class sizes and a private school! When I toured schools that were more “commercial” they were indeed bigger and noticed less teachers to students ratio. I liked Coba’s smaller class sizes with more focus and attention on students than the other places.

How did you discover your passion for beauty?

When I was younger I used to do my mom, my step-mom and my dad’s hair. For example I used to put a bunch of goop and glitter in my mom and step-mom’s hair and did pony tails on dad’s hair…and when I was five I said I wanted to be a hairstylist! Later in life I figured out that is what I wanted to do.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Working at a salon, most likely renting a chair and having a big clientele while being able to do whatever I want in the beauty industry, I think that’ll be very cool.

What advice can you share with prospective students who are thinking about starting their beauty career, but are still doubting about it?

Honestly, beauty is the coolest industry I’ve ever been in. I just modeled for NAHA which is like the National Hair Awards and was just in awe watching the stylists build such unique hairstyles, it was just incredible! There’s no limit as to how creative and artistic you can be, it’s like releasing your art on other people, it’s really cool!
