Why Lake Tech?
I researched several different schools offering cosmetology. I decided upon Lake Tech because, from the moment I walked through the doors, everyone made feel like my goals and dreams were attainable.
How was Lake Tech different from other schools you have attended?
With flexible class schedules available, Lake Tech offered me a program with personalized attention, smaller class sizes, and excellent instructors. Along with all these wonderful things I was able to attend class in the evening making it easy for me to work and receive a quality education.
How long did it take you to complete your training?
Approximately 14 months.
What did you learn in your program that prepared you for your job?
The Cosmetology program offers students the chance to experience firsthand how to work proficiently in a real salon. From servicing clients, to working as receptionist or salon manager, I was able to learn how to work with a diverse group of people in a fun environment all while learning valuable skills for my desired profession.
Describe your best experience while a student at Lake Tech.
In addition to receiving student of the month and being inducted into the National Technical Honor Society, my best experience at Lake Tech was building a relationship with a very special client. I was always happy to see her for our weekly appointments. She taught me a lot about life it the short time I was able to spend with her. That is the sad part about graduating; leaving behind all the wonderful people you meet along the way.
What is one thing that future students should know about Lake Tech?
The education I received went above and beyond my expectations. All of the cosmetology instructors are very knowledgeable of the many different aspects of the business. I graduated Lake Tech with the confidence that I am ready to conquer any challenge that may come my way.
Do you have plans to continue your education?
As a cosmetologist there is a wealth of resources at your fingertips from the Internet to nationally recognized hair shows. I plan on using every opportunity available to me to stay current with the latest trends and techniques.
