This beauty Influencer started her career at Delmar College. Kathy was enrolled in a 3-day 1400hr Hairstyling program in which she embraced her talent and was hired directly from school. Kathy has 1,828 followers on her IG account and growing! Like many cosmetologists Kathy embraced her talent and first love and specialized in it! Color is Kathy’s forte however she still keeps fresh with cuts too!

 

Here is what Kathy has to say about Delmar College: 

“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!”
-Kathy Tran

 To all of you that always kept up with my blogs throughout my Delmar experience – Thank you! This will be my last post as I graduate at the end of march! This month of school is going to be really busy, due to everything finishing up. We had our last potluck and our unlikely inspiration photo shoot project recently and Id like to share some of my work with you.

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.

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!

Delmar Student Ambassador: Lainnee Simpson

Hi, my name is Lainnee and I am currently in the Hair Design program at Delmar.

I chose Delmar after I had done research on many different hair design schools. I knew I wanted to come to Calgary, even though it was much further for me from home, because of the amazing reviews on this school. I had talked to a couple people who are graduates and they had nothing but great things to say, Delmar just seemed to be a perfect fit.

Working on a bride

Ever since I was young I have been interested in the beauty industry. I am inspired by the way a career can become art and expression, and you can help others feel good about themselves. The past few years I have done makeup for weddings, grads, and events, and have finished my eyelash extension and nail tech course. I had felt that something was missing. This is when I decided it was time to go to hair school. I feel more comfortable in this course than in anything else I have ever done. I have the best support from my family and friends, which made this decision very easy.

A makeup look I did

My advice for future students at Delmar is: Never stop trying and practicing. If this is something you are passionate about doing, just do it and don’t look back, you will not be disappointed.

Some styling work I did on my mannequin in class

After graduating I see myself completing my apprentice hours under an amazing stylist back home. After I complete my government exam I plan to open my own salon in my hometown. The thing I look forward to the most is waking up everyday and going to a job I enjoy and am passionate about.

unnamed
Working on fingerwaves in class

My favourite part about school so far is learning from teachers who are so passionate about what they are teaching, and who genuinely care about your future in this industry. Many things I have learned so far are difficult and take a lot of practice. I still have a lot to learn but I look forward to continuing to get better and having such great people help me succeed.

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!

img_0449

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!

you_doodle_2017-08-04t17_27_18z

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!

img_0478

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!

Morgan
