It was funny because none of us had ridden a bike in YEARS. It took a minute to get used to being on a bicycle again, but I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything in this world. -Carolynn N.

The water was super blue and we ended up having an impromptu photo-shoot on the beach. The tour guides tried to redirect us but eventually just let us have a blast and we came back with pictures to die for… –Adrianna B.

Day 7 & 8- Hands On Education

Pivot Point International rolled out brand new education and our students were the very first to take it. Severine LeBrown and Sabrina Holtz taught the theoretical and practical aspects of the Meta 050 hair design course.

The students also had the opportunity to work with Makeup Forever for an entire day.

We learned this cool fringe technique so when we got back to the hotel room we cut fringe on me. Loved this education. -Carolynn N.

I loved the techniques they taught us. Especially the fringe techinques!! For me, fringe was something I really struggled with and this class really helped bring it all together for me. –Adrianna B.

Once I learned about MakeUp Forever, I went out and bought a ton of it… It is actually what I wear now. – Alissa S.

It was cool because they had an area for photo-shoots in the studio area. They were actually doing a photo-shoot while we were there. They made a hairpiece out of candy and complemented the look with this incredible makeup line. –Leena K.

Day 9- Homebound

 

Our students found themselves on a jet headed back to California and faced with the plight of airline food much too quickly.

Though they had spent 9 luxurious days in Barcelona, everyone agreed they could have easily spent another 9 with no objections!
