Volunteer Turned Cosmetologist Learns New Ways to Lend a Helping Hand

With a background in non-profit volunteer work, Nicole Bennett never thought she would end up in cosmetology. Now, she’s a student at Minnesota School of Cosmetology and is excited to begin this new career path.

“Walking into school I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I have learned that this is a never-ending learning experience,” she says. “I feel ready for my career, and now with the basis I can continue to learn from here.”

There are many things Nicole finds exciting about cosmetology and being a student at MSC, including the fun activities in addition to serving clients.

“There are plenty of avenues to explore with art in hair and explore your individualism, like doing holiday up-dos and Halloween mannequin heads,” she says. “I really enjoy the hands-on work, as well as working with people.”

Nicole says she chose MSC because the atmosphere was open, friendly and upbeat. She also likes that MSC gives her an outlet to express herself.

“Being able to cut, color and style with a vision in my head – and only mine – is one of the most free, artistic feelings,” explains Nicole. “On a daily basis I love to do cut and color and play around with options and techniques. There are many opportunities to be creative.”

One of those opportunities for Nicole was the chance to enter the Wella Trend Vision competition, where she got to see her ideas come to life on a model. Nicole also appreciates the guidance she receives from her instructors at MSC.

“I love my instructors. They move at your pace and know each individual student very well and how to work with them,” she says. “If you want it, they will help you get there.”
