My name is Rozalyn and I am a junior in the Professional Esthetics program at Delmar College. I feel truly honored to be apart of the Delmar blog list.
Firstly, a bit about myself. I decided to come to Delmar College because I was feeling like I needed a career change. Working in retail and being a certified florist didn’t make me happy anymore. My mom has been a hair stylist for my entire life and told me to get into the beauty industry. I was Being stubborn for many years, But now I finally did it!
In January our class started off with lots of theory. Vision boards about our goals, science projects about the Anatomy & physiology of the body and more! Finally the fun stuff.
Next, it was waxing and tinting. Which I love! There is something so satisfying to remove hair from the body. Finding models for this has been a bit of a struggle. At first, I thought I only needed new friends (haha)…But no I just needed to get out of my comfort zone, and branch out to all social media outlets to bring in models. With success I got many people for the upcoming model days.
My first practical exam on waxing made me so nervous but, with an awesome instructor and some confidence I got through it! In February, we started manicures and pedicures. Manicures were fun until someone wants red nail polish!
Thank you Sam for teaching us polish applications from the very first week of class. It truly helped when it came to the practical exam.
Pedicures are a bit of a challenge for me. I had to find ways to hold up legs without straining my hand. Good thing every day is an improvement. Time for Facials, facials, facials!
March has been all about the skin. Learning about different skin types, the Fitzpatrick scale and the disorders & diseases of the skin. I really had no clue there is so much to learn when it comes to our skin. I am having the time of my life at Delmar College meeting and learning beside awesome people! I now have my practical exam to prepare for here soon, so stay tuned to my monthly blog to hear about how my program is going, and whats going on at the Aesthetics campus!
