Vyset Koumalasy is a nail technician at A La Mode Boutique and Nail Spa in Edina, Minn., a position she landed before she graduated from Minnesota School of Cosmetology (MSC).
“The program (at Minnesota School of Cosmetology) definitely prepared me for this career. It’s very hands-on,” Vyset explains.
Students at MSC learn to perfect hair, nail and skin care techniques through both theory and lab, and clinical hours. Vyset enjoyed the immediate hands-on experience she got working on manikins and fellow classmates, and eventually clients.
Vyset originally chose to attend the MSC campus in Plymouth, Minn., because it was brand new, but her instructors were far from beginners in the field. Not only did her instructors teach Vyset the techniques she needed to know for her career, but they helped her find her job.
“My instructors were awesome,” says Vyset. “[They] got to know you as a person. They figured out what your goals were.”
Vyset says she still keeps in touch with some of her instructors who helped her every step of the way while she was attending MSC, as well as after graduation, something she says she never thought she would find in a school.
“My overall experience was very exciting with MSC,” says Vyset. “Once you’re done … you have so many different fields you can go into with a cosmetology license.”
The cosmetology field is perfect for Vyset because she loves people, and she absolutely recommends MSC to anyone who has a passion for cosmetology like she does.
“It’s worth it,” she says.
