Interview with MSC-Woodbury student competitor, Sarah Dodd

1.  Why did you decide to enter the INsalon competition?

I entered the INsalon competition because I wanted to try something new and see what the expectations were outside of school. Plus I like to be challenged.

2.  Why did you to choose the men’s cutting category?

I have been told I am good at men’s cuts and I wanted to see if people who didn’t know me felt the same way.

3.  How did the competition motivate you?

I know that the next time I do a competition that I’m going to learn new tricks and work harder on my timing.

4.  What was your favorite part about the competition?

Seeing all the wonderful work of my fellow cosmetologists! It was exciting to be in a place where we could all be creative.
