Minnesota School of Cosmetology-Woodbury (MSC) graduate Lacy Gullikson has been working at Fantastic Sams since she graduated cosmetology school. She was happy to answer our questions about her journey into the beauty industry.
Tell us about your career path before graduation from MSC.
I started at a different beauty school, but I didn’t feel ready to go into the real world. I needed to find a new school where I could get extra help to succeed in my career.
Why did you choose MSC?
They work with you one-on-one if you need extra help, and they are all about the students!
How did your education enhance or change your current career path?
I never felt so ready to get out and work in a salon. Even just applying at salons was fun because MSC teaches you how to set up your resume and how to interview. I loved my time at MSC and my education. I even outsmarted some interviewers while being interviewed!
What piece of advice would you give students considering a career in cosmetology?
Go for it! “You do not make mistakes, you make new discoveries.” This is something I learned at MSC and still live by. It is totally awesome making people feel better about themselves.
What do you enjoy about the cosmetology industry?
Meeting new people, helping them find a new look and feel confident about themselves. They have to wake up every day and look in the mirror, so I know I helped them, and it makes me feel good.
