STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Ebony R. Instagram: @Littlemzeverythang
By: JanyNicole Stehman
Ebony is a current Cosmetology student and so far in her time here she has made Student Ambassador and Student of the Month. She always offers help when needed and is also a talented local clothing designer. We sat down to chat about her time at Federico Beauty Institute
JNS: What’s your favorite thing that you’ve learned so far as a Cosmetology student?
ER: That curling hair in a perfect vertical spiral can be combed out into beautiful waves. It seems so counterintuitive, but it comes out gorgeous every time!
JNS: Do you have any insider tips on how to get the most out of your time at Federico?
ER: Get involved in the community activities. It’s a great way to give back and earn extra hours and experience.
JNS: Plus you learn to work well under pressure! What’s your favorite product for yourself or your clients?
ER: Newsha Leave-In Conditioner. I love this conditioning spray because it works on all hair types and is great for detangling stubborn hair.
JNS: It smells great too! Who are you loving on Instagram right now?
ER: @BeautyCanBraid. My hair career started with braiding extension. I love her Insta and Youtube tutorials because she teaches you how to achieve the styles she shares safely. Plus her work is amazing.
JNS: What are you hoping to do after you graduate?
ER: I want to take a position with a salon and also hopefully work for a product line. I’d like to eventually turn that into becoming a cosmetology instructor. I’ve learned so much from being here and I’d like to help spread that love of knowledge.
JNS: That’s awesome! I know we would love to have you back here as an instructor *wink wink. What do you like most about being here?
ER: Everything that my school exposes me to. When I walked in here in May of 2015 I had one plan, to open my own salon/boutique where I would be the BOSS. Now I want to work under someone and teach the future cosmetologists of the world.
