Cosmetology “Highlights” – The Life of a Cosmetology Student

Meet Emma.  She decided to try Cosmetology at the suggestion of her hairstylist.

After being homeschooled by her Mom and attending UW-FDL and UW-Washingon County for general education classes, she thought, “why not.”

Emma then started her cosmetology career here at Moraine Park in January 2017.  Emma has already been hired as a receptionist at Lavish Salon and Spa in Mayville.  She plans on taking her boards along with her classmates on Nov. 6, 2017 so she is ready to start working on clients as soon as she graduates in December 2017.

The advice she would give other students looking to get into the field is that no matter what your age, if you have always wanted to go to school for Cosmetology, to go for it!  The best part of school was working on clients in the school’s salon (Techniques Salon and Spa).

Emma lives with her Mom, Grandma, younger sister and four dogs and two cats. Her favorite pastime is reading.
