Delmar Student Ambassador: Moe Jarrah

 

unnamed
-Moe Jarrah

 

1. Why did you choose Delmar college?
It’s actually very straight forward why I chose Delmar. It’s because of friends and family members that got their education through Delmar College and had recommended the school once they knew I wanted to get into the hairstyling industry.

2. What award did you receive/prize? 
I was awarded with an awesome pair of Drew Kalaf shears and a Babyliss Pro blow dryer.
3. What does it mean to you to have been chosen as the school ambassador? 
It honestly meant a lot to me to be chosen as an ambassador. It shows how the school can see your hard work and dedication and appreciate your effort, it just pushes you on giving your best because you know that they are aware of every step taken by any student.
4. Why did you decide to become a barber/hairstylist? 
I’ve always had the passion for becoming a hairstylist, that passion grew by watching my father do what he does best throughout the years. so now here I am getting into the industry to start my own career.
(some of Moe’s work)
5. So far what has your experience at Delmar been for you?
After attending Delmar for 7 months now I would say I made the right decision enrolling into the school! I would have to say it has the most professional, caring and down to earth instructors that actually take the time to teach and make sure you’re taught the right way. It’s always an awesome atmosphere inside the college, we’re just one big family that cares about one another – The best way to explain it!
6. What advice would you give someone about Delmar? 
For anyone that is interested in the hairstyling/barbering business, your best choice would be Delmar college. After seeing how much they focus on preparing their students for what they will be examined on, becoming a hairstylist is not easy there is a lot to it and they go into depth with it all!
7. What is your next goal/step going to be? 
My goal is to build my clientele, eventually start my own business.
8. Has this been the right path for you? 
Definitely has been, no regrets what so ever!
9. How did you decide to become a barber/hairstylist?
I believe you should love your job and what you do since we spend most of our time at work. It is absolutely essential for your own personal well being that you feel positively about the career path that you choose, as the saying goes “do what you love and love what you do”.
Lastly I would like to thank my main instructor Jenessa and my cutting instructor Andrew Kalaf ; as well as, everyone that is part of this college for everything they’ve done for us since day 1.

Diary of a hair student #8 by Morgan Calvert

Hello everyone,

It’s been amazing lately with school and all the opportunities it has opened up for me even before I’ve graduated. I recently started working at Tommy Guns in the downtown core location and love it.

IMG_1084
School is crazy busy right now. We’re doing so many things at once including some final projects and our second term midterms are coming up. I am honestly super nervous about it. I’m also really excited about graduating and being able to work in a barber shop or salon full time.
In the last month I’ve noticed a huge improvement in my hair colouring and hair cutting skills because of all the time we now spend on the floor.


Over the holiday season we had a contest for who could sell the most amount of gift cards under our names. I am happy to share with you that I came in second and also attained top retailer of the month!
I was never one to do well in high school so being able to accomplish so much at something I really love is amazing and empowering.


I hope you enjoy the pictures of my recent hair makeovers on some of the amazing clients I have had the chance to work with at Delmar.

Thank you for reading.

“Wake up Call” A guest blog by Mariah Rycroft

The moment you finish your 1400hrs here at Delmar College our graduates move on to the second step of their learning process, Apprenticeship. Sometimes, we tend to only  hear the success stories and then get to thinking “How hard can it be?” Not every Happy ending comes with a successful beginning. Today, we hear from a graduate of Delmar College and her story of how hard it really can be. 

IMG_0045
– Mariah Rycroft

     The day I received my diploma from Delmar I was beyond excited. I couldn’t believe how accomplished I had felt. I made it through the hours of studying and practicing for both theory and practical exams, made it through the numerous highs, and the numerous lows, it was a dream come true. I was so excited to get out there and get my hands in hair and start building up my clientele, boy was I in for a bit of a wake up call.

      I received a job at a boutique salon, which I thought would be a great environment for someone fresh out of school. I soon came to realize the environment of this salon was not what I was looking for. There was not a lot of educational opportunities for a beginner like myself in this particular salon, and for someone who was starting to realize school could only teach you so much, it was very disappointing. This was only the tip of the iceberg so to speak. It was hard to realize that this was it? When starting out you’re told that you that you will “assist” and “learn” from senior stylists. For me this wasn’t the case. I was bullied at work. I was under appreciated, and I was looked down upon.

    After only working there for a couple months, it was decided that I would no longer be working for that salon. I then would go on to spend the next couple months working retail to help pay the bills. I had started to convince myself I had made the wrong decision in choosing hair as a career.Then, everything changed when I received the opportunity to interview at Redbloom salon.

The amount of support, education, and confidence I’ve regained working at this salon has been impeccable! I now love waking up everyday to go to work! Which was always something that was important to me when deciding what to do with the rest of my life.

       
There are a few things I believe are important for those wanting to enter into the industry, or those ready to graduate and take the next step.
One: Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you chose an easy career. It is not easy whatsoever! With that being said, it is also a very rewarding career to be able to make people feel beautiful and confident!
Second: Never lose your passion! No matter what life throws at you. When I lost my job, I was going through multiple personal issues as well. I thought I would never be able to regain my passion towards anything. Luckily, I had an amazing teacher at Delmar, who I stayed in contact with, and she was able to push me to get back out there. I will never be able to thank Brittany Connors enough for giving me tough love. My mom also played a huge part in regaining my confidence, as she never stopped believing in me.
Lastly, I believe to be of the most important is to be picky! Be picky in the salon you choose to apprentice in. Do your research, see what each salon will offer you education wise, and support wise. It makes a world of difference when you work for a well organized business.

All in all my experience outside of school has been what some would call a roller coaster, but I couldn’t be happier to be on this crazy ride, and can’t wait to see where it will take me next!

Hello Everyone,

 

Thank you for joining me again for this this months blog 🙂

School is basically just like working in a salon now that in into my last four months of school. Its been fun being on the salon floor and finally starting to feel like an actual hair stylist! 

I don’t have much new information about the actual program at this time, other than its been a lot of fun and the time in the program  has been going by very quickly.

 

Here’s some pictures of all the cuts and colors I have actually  remembered to take pictures of. 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks again for reading my blog this month!

What program are you currently attending?

Clinical Esthetics

What made you choose Delmar?

I have a few girlfriends that took the hairstyling course at Delmar and really loved it, so I decided to check it out. When I came for my initial appointment with the director Linda, she and everyone else I spoke with were super friendly, and answered all my questions. I was definitely impressed and felt welcome right from the get-go!

image2-1

What is your biggest inspiration?

All of the beautiful men and women doing their own thing, working hard and starting their own businesses, is truly inspiring. It’s amazing what we can all do when we put our minds to it. I love watching the success stories of my friends, colleagues and former classmates pop up on social media – warms my heart!

image6

What advice do you have for future students in your program?

Go for it! If you’re interested in the clinical side of esthetics, you’ll love it. This class is very informative. I’ve learned a ton that I honestly didn’t expect to, given the short time period. Maybe don’t be tanned – if you’re like myself who loved to tan, you probably won’t anymore – you will be convinced otherwise – in a good way.

image7

Where do you see yourself after graduating?

Long term I hope to open my own laser studio! But after graduation I plan to work in a dermatologists office for a few years here in Calgary and build my experience before moving back to the Okanagan and starting my own business.

image4

What has been your favourite part of school so far?

So far, I have enjoyed this course in all aspects, but Audrey definitely takes the cake for her course delivery! She is a really great instructor. I feel fortunate to be part of such an awesome, diverse group of classmates who all help and support each other… I will miss them all so much! – but look forward to hopefully working them in the future. As for the course itself, I’ve been most interested in laser, which I had presumed before starting the class. I’m also currently interested in micro needling, which has been a prime addition to the clinical esthetics class. I just had my full face done today – so excited to see the results!

Diary of a Hair Student Entry #4 by Morgan Calvert

Hello Everyone,

Being in school at Delmar college has been a lot of fun the last month, we learned a lot about the chemicals and ingredients that go into hair services and how they work. I personally find this stuff very interesting because I feel like once I have a complete understanding of everything that goes into hair color and lightening I will be able to start creating really amazing things with human hair.

We also just started doing color application and I find this to be really fun and surprisingly relaxing. There were a couple of people in my class that found it to be a little stressful, so if you decide to take a hair program and you are struggling, don’t panic because there are people that found it just as hard as you do that are now doing amazing!

This program is moving along way faster than I thought it would be, I feel like we just started the program and we’re about to start working on the salon floor this following month.

I think most of the class is pretty nervous about starting on the salon floor but I have a good feeling about everyone in the class doing well on the midterm exams and doing an amazing job on the salon floor.

I believe that as long as we all remember that we’re still learning, and not be too hard on ourselves, the turn out will be amazing!!

Below are some photos of everyone doing their first color application and some pictures of my first spiral perm wrap!

Until next time, stay positive!
