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.

Cosmetology has always been apart of my life. It allows me to express an inner beauty on the outside.
So I figured why not make it my career & help others bring their inner beauty out.
There is nothing more rewarding to me than being able to help people feel confident in themselves. The level of creativity you can do with hair is so incredible and the connections you can build with clients is everlasting.
I value the meaning of my work and how important it is to make women and men feel beautiful and confident.
What I value most is all the hands-on training we get. As students, it’s the best experience to be able to jump right in.
I value the patience of my educators and the kindness of my classmates. I also appreciate the amount of clients we have because it allows for more hands-on experience.
Cosmetology has always been a passion of mine. I want to help people feel beautiful and it’s a fun industry to be in.
I really value my teachers and the guest speakers we have. I love that my teachers help me keep improving.
I have always been a creative person and thought cosmetology & fashion would be my thing.

I chose this career because I believe in the power of beauty. It’s my passion to witness the art of transformation & the life changing experience that comes with it.

GJA is more than a school. They teach us life skills and experiences that I couldn’t put a price on.
