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!

Federico Ambassadors

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.

Federico Outreach

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.

Federico Blood Source

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.
