Some info about my formal training and career....
- Education_ I studied Cosmetology at vocational career school my junior & senior year of highschool at Lake County Highschool Tech Campus in Grayslake, Illinois. This required 1500 hours of practical (performing services) and technical (textbook) studies to graduate and become a licensed professional. I also am required in order to keep my license active by Illinois law, 14 hours of continued education every 2 years. So this keeps me up to date in beauty trends and techniques as well as sanitation policies. We are recently required to take a domestic violence class bi-annually as well.
- Work experience_ I started in a small town family owned salon for many years, doing color, hair cutting, waxing manis & pedis and everything in between. I then worked in places like ULTA & AVEDA salons, growing my product knowledge and skills in skincare, hair care and makeup.
- Skills_ The past 7 years I have been working all over Dominican Republic, mainly in weddings, really perfecting my skills in HAIRSTYLING and MAKEUP. I have been featured in numerous blogs and wedding publications, including -----> Style Me Pretty.
