Emily has successfully completed 2/4 government exams so far, and cannot wait to complete the next 2. Emily separates her skills from others by “stepping out of a comfort zone”. She builds a diverse clientele by servicing clients from many different ethnicity’s. Where some may not be comfortable with Extremely curly hair – she excels! She loves to challenge herself with all hair types and to continue her growth in the industry!

What Emily does?

Emily provides all services, however her specialty is Balayage, up styles, braiding, and cutting curly hair. We asked Emily how important re-booking is to her. This is her response: ” asking a client to re-book is very important. Depending on what the service is, keeping a client consistent with their appointments and home care will keep their hair maintained and they will be grateful”. This is her way of keeping her clients coming back for more & happy with their results.

“My experience at Delmar College was GREAT! I was taught everything I needed to know to enter into the hair industry with full confidence. Getting my license was a piece of cake because Delmar’s training was so intense (in a good way). I love how the classes were smaller and our instructors were very caring with our education. A lot of people will say ‘ you will forget everything you learned in hair school and develop your own ways’ but even today I am using a lot of the skills that Delmar had taught me!”

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!

“A Mom, a student, and now a Graduate” A Guest blog by Megan Boguski

      Sometimes we do not always get the ‘cookie cutter’ life plan that we dream of when children. Sometimes, we as individuals need to take control of our lives and make decisions to better our future. We asked recent graduate, Megan Boguski to share her experience about her 1400 hr. Hair styling program here at Delmar College, and how she managed a very busy schedule.  Here is her story: 

IMG_8526
Megan Boguski


As a mom with a busy 3 year old making the decision to go back to school did not come lightly. Hair school was a dream I’ve had for a long time. Thankfully, when I had my meeting with Shauna at Delmar it went from a dream to a goal. I knew school would be a huge commitment both mentally and financially for not just myself but my husband and son. I signed up for student loans, found an amazing daycare facility, and I enrolled in the full time Hair styling program with 8 hour days, 5 days a week!

IMG_5693[1]
Megan & Son Linden
I started the first week of March. I had been told beforehand that it was not an easy program and a lot of studying was involved. The director said this once again in orientation, and even explained the financial penalties of dropping out at each stage of the program.

IMG_3323
Meghan & Instructor Mrs. Connors

The first semester of school involved learning everything needed for the final exams like roller sets, perms and finger waves, which any stylist knows is not easy! We also had 2 tests a week. As a wife whose husband works 12+ hour days in construction, I knew I would be doing all the housework, cooking and daycare drop off / pick ups myself. My nights almost always involved staying up till all hours of the night making sure I was ready for the next test.

IMG_5695[1]
Megan & Class at the Walk for ALS

My first month was a frustrating experience. I didn’t take cosmetology when I was in high school, nor had I been in school for over 6 years. I had to learn how to study all over again! I felt like I wasn’t getting some of the hands-on practices that I was being taught. I was lucky to have an amazing teacher Brittany Connors who offered tutoring, and with my family’s help in watching my son the tutoring classes allowed me to excel!

IMG_5694[1]
Megan and her Completed Art Of Lift class certificate!
 

Coming back to school as a mom was one of the toughest things I have done but also so rewarding. I worked as hard as I could, taking advantage of all the opportunities given to me. I had volunteered at 2 different modeling agencies styling hair for photo shoots, the Calgary hair exchange, an advanced color class by one of my instructors maricel and more. To add to my experience I was able to win retailer of the month from August to October winning me a new set of tools.

 



After 9 months of hard work; with my Delmar diploma in hand, I’m so excited to have found an amazing salon to work at called “Blossom Salon” which is located on Bannister Road SE Calgary. Now I get to spend more quality time with my son then I ever had when running a day-home, and best of all I’m doing something I love and continuing to grow my career.

If you’re in need of a new Hairstylist look me up! First appointments with me receive  50% Off service!
