Meet Our Team: Blaire


Meet our team: Blaire has been working with us as an Admissions Advisor for over six years at Gene Juarez Academy North. We asked Blaire to share some of her insights she’s learned in her time with us – and what makes her love her job so much. Here’s what she had to say:

What is your favorite part of your job?

There are so many things that I love about my position. One of my favorite things is getting to witness the growth of the students throughout the program; from the very first day they tour, to their first haircut, all the way until graduation. Not only do I get to see their growth in their skills, but just in the confidence they gain on a day to day basis.

The ultimate reward is then getting to see what the students are able to achieve after graduation, and how they are able to really excel and become a successful part of the industry. They become living proof of the dream that they desired at their very first tour. That is what makes my job so meaningful; getting the chance to be a part of making someone’s dream become a reality.

What advice do you have for someone thinking about going to beauty school?

It’s not as scary as you think, and there is no reason to be nervous! When looking into school many potential students fear so many things: cost,financial aid, schedule, curriculum etc. If cosmetology is something that you are even slightly interested in, it is best to put all fears aside andschedule a time to visit the school.

Coming in for a tour does not obligate you to anything, and is really just a great opportunity to learn more about the program and see if we would be a good fit for you. There is no pressure to enroll and you will never know if cosmetology is the right path for you without checking it out.

Why do you think someone should choose Gene Juarez Academy?

Gene Juarez Academy is the best! Our academy is so much more than just hair. Our educator’s passion and dedication to each and every one of their students takes the program and curriculum to the next level.

The cosmetology industry has so many different career paths to take, and we want to ensure students are prepared for all aspects of the industry. Whether that be working in a Gene Juarez Salon after graduation or another one of Seattle’s top salons, our program is designed and focused on creating successful alumni and new industry leaders within each graduate.
