Gene Juarez Academy offers much more than learning the necessary skills to get a cosmetology license — we also provide opportunities for leadership and creative development. Cosmetology students who are driven to get as much out of their education as possible have the opportunity to get involved in the Student Ambassador program.
As the voice of the student body, Ambassadors are the leaders on campus. They welcome and mentor new beauty school students, provide feedback to campus management, and participate in community events and marketing projects for the cosmetology school. Ambassadors learn valuable skills while influencing others with their passion for the salon and spa industry and dedication to their cosmetology education.

I chose a career in Cosmetology because it carries the same values I uphold: artistry, individuality, expression, diversity, openness and willingness to grow in self-confidence & appearance.
Since my first day at Gene Juarez Academy, each educator has made my success their personal priority.
I chose a career in Cosmetology because I grew up in the beauty industry. I would always stay and watch my mom do foils instead of going to play outside. The process of making someone look and feel better amazes me.
The things that serve as an inspiration during my journey are learning new ideas, the progress I am making each day and having a positive impact on the way I make people feel.
What I value most are my educators! They are always there to answer my questions & support everything I do. They make me feel valued as a student.
This industry is very unique and filled with individuality. It allows me to empower women and men who need a little more self love and the courage to be who and what they want. I want to make my mark in this industry & I will!
