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 can 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 have always enjoyed coloring my own hair and believed it would be something I would love to do for others and turn it into a career. There is nothing better than to see the complete look of joy on a guest's face after you completed a service that they love.

One of the things that has meant a lot to me as a student has been the variety of education we have received. From specific techniques on various services to eyelash extensions, I've felt like I have received a lot of information that I wouldn't have gotten elsewhere.

Besides learning so many techniques, I really value that I'm learning proper safety and sanitation while working on real people. I also value the 3-day school schedule which helps me balance my work and school life.

I've wanted to do hair since I was young. In 2020, I was asked "if I could redo on thing in my life what would I do?" and without hesitation, I said go to beauty school. Three months later, I started school!

I have always wanted a career in Cosmetology because it gives me the flexibility to be home with my kids and still work. Being a Student Ambassador gives me the opportunity to inspire others to follow their Cosmetology dream no matter their age. All that matters is that you start.
