Minnesota School of Cosmetology Graduate Loves What She Does
Since graduating from Minnesota School of Cosmetology (MSC), Katie Greene has been able to expand on her passion for the beauty industry. After perfecting her hair, skin and nail care expertise at MSC, Katie continued her education by getting certified in several additional services including hair extensions, smoothing treatments and spray tanning. Katie uses her skills on clients every day.
“I work behind the chair in a salon,” explains Katie. “I am basically my own boss. I am able to choose my own schedule and charge my own prices.”
Katie says she loves her job, but was exposed to many different career opportunities during her time at MSC.
“We not only learned how to master the techniques but were able to experience different directions of the industry other than behind-the-chair work,” she says.
Katie also appreciated that she and other students had the ability to participate in various cosmetology events, such as hands-on applied learning, community service projects and competitions. She says the staff was outstanding, including those in MSC’s financial aid department.
“I am so thankful for the financial aid staff,” says Katie. “They made applying for financial aid so easy and understandable.”
Overall, Katie says enrolling at Minnesota School of Cosmetology was the best decision she’s ever made, and she loves what she does.
“I can’t imagine doing anything else. My clients have become my friends and family. There is never a day I feel like I am working because I love what I am doing that much!”
