Summer at Delmar : Recap Blog

It has been a short summer as it seems. The weather has not been to our typical “Calgary standards”. We have had TONS of smoke and limited sun! Some would even say it has been a ‘Let down’. However, We here at Delmar College have been MOVING & SHAKING – with NO summer blues here…Let me share with you what I mean:

What program are you currently attending?

Clinical Esthetics

image8

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!

Diary of a Hair Student Entry #3 by Morgan Calvert

Hello Everyone. This month we have been mostly focusing on our timing and getting everything organized for our midterm exams. I honestly haven’t been so nervous about anything in my life like I am for this! We did our mock exam last week and no one passed, but that’s okay because apparently no one ever passes the mock exam. So that makes me feel better!

When you first start school everything is going to seem impossible but now that I’m into my third month I’m starting to feel pretty confident in everything other than finger waves. The whole class struggles with them so if you feel like you will never get the hang of it, that’s totally okay because I feel that way too! But I can see the improvement in mine and everyone else’s finger waves!

This month has been pretty crazy because our regular instructor Erin had to do her other class’s final photo shoot with them on some days so we had a bunch of different instructors filling in for her, and I can honestly say this is the first school I have attended where I liked all the teachers! Everyone here really knows what they are doing and do a great job educating their students!

I have learned so much more in hair school than I thought I was going to learn, but it’s honestly amazing and I’m still extremely happy with my decision to go to Delmar for hair dressing!

I’m sorry for the lack of pictures this time because we haven’t really been working on anything new, but I did get all these pictures of what everyone’s finger waves look like after three months of practicing!

Until next time!
