When Regency Beauty Institute-Knoxville student Tina M. received a call from her long-time friend asking for help to re-imagine her look, Tina couldn’t wait to get started.
“She had brought in a great picture for her face shape and her bone structure,” Tina said.
Tina’s client and friend began her appointment with long, grey/brown hair that stretched down past her shoulders. When she stood up, she sported a trendy, textured pixie dusted with auburn highlights that Tina achieved with lightener.
“She has a very spunky attitude,” Tina said. “The look is so ‘her.’”
Tina said her friend was unrecognizable even family after the haircut. Tina submitted it to FirstChair.com®, and (drum roll please) was featured as one of the selected student galleries.
“I was very excited. I was proud of my work,” Tina said.
The whole campus helped Tina celebrate. The best part – Tina had only just started taking clients when she completed the revolutionary look.
“Everybody was so excited and congratulating me,” Tina said. Especially her teachers.
Tina used the featured gallery as a promotion tool as she applied to jobs after graduating from Regency this fall and recommends other students use the opportunity to share their work. Students can submit photos for print and web consideration on FirstChair.com® using the Modern Salon® portal.
Tina now works at Stylemakers® Salon and Spa. And continues to help her friend maintain her new look.
“You can see it in her eyes,” Tina said. “You can see it in her smile. She absolutely loved it and is still loving it to this day.”
