Cosmetology Students Put to the Test at Competition

Cosmetology competitions can be fierce, but they are a great way for students to put their skills to the test. Teachers can evaluate student performance in cosmetology schools, but the controlled environment in the classroom is nothing like that which is experienced on the competition floor. Coming up this month is a cosmetology competition for which some students have spent months preparing.

(PRWEB) May 17, 2012 – The competition takes place on Sunday May 20th and will be judged by some of the industry’s top hair, nail and make-up pros, such as Jan Zanettini of CND, Creative Nail Design, Michael O’Rourke of Rock Your Hair, Rafe Hardy of Sexy Hair, Martin Dale of Matrix, Shannon Lamm of Goldwell, and Lydia Sarfati of Repechage.

“Every year we are astonished by the level of talent and showmanship we see at this competition,” states Franklin K. Schoeneman, CEO, Empire Education Group. “The students put every drop of energy, inspiration and skill they can summon into their creations and the judges have never once had an easy time choosing the winners. The competition is fierce and the anxiety and nervous energy on Sunday is always palpable, but there is no better way to help students raise their game and ensure they will go on to great success in this wonderful industry of ours.”

One exciting highlight of the two day event is the long anticipated announcement of the winner of the Master Apprentice contest with celebrity stylist Nick Arrojo. One lucky Empire student will land his or her dream job as an apprentice with Nick Arrojo at his trendy New York City salon, Arrojo Studio, as well as $10,000 in living expenses.

Students compete throughout the year at their local schools to qualify as finalists competing in Hershey. On Monday May 21st, winners and runners up are honored at an electrifying awards ceremony, which harnesses the energy of hundreds of fired-up beauty students who are eager to get their beauty careers started off with a bang.
