If you’re considering heading back to school this fall, Salon Success Academies can help you “Start Smart” when it comes to your cosmetology or esthetics education. At Salon Success Academies, our “Starting Smart” orientations are an important part of every class. Our two-day orientations help us welcome every new student to the Salon Success family!
The first day of orientation is filled with information, introductions, and fun! All of our new students spend their first day at our Upland campus, meeting all of the people who will be helping them on this journey to a new career. You’ll meet your campus director, our student ambassadors, and other important staff members. They’ll explain what the programs at Salon Success Academies are like, and how you can get more involved at your campus.
In addition to meeting Salon Success Academies’ staff, you’ll hear from George Miller, a veteran in the beauty industry. He shares his advice and enthusiasm for the beauty industry with each new class. You’ll also see a presentation from a Matrix educator. Matrix is just one of the professional beauty product partnerships that SSA has. During the first day you’ll also enjoy lunch with your new classmates, giving you the chance to get to know the people you’ll be studying with, and practicing your new skills on!
Of course, one of the most exciting parts of heading back to school is receiving your student kit. You’ll get this during your very first day at Salon Success Academies. This extensive kit includes all of the tools, equipment, and books you’ll be using during your time at SSA, as well as your student uniform. This will also be the first time you “meet” your first client – your Pivot Point mannequin head!
On the second day of orientation, our new students each head to their own campuses to see the facilities and learn more about how Salon Success Academies works. You’ll learn about all of our policies, get to know the layout of your school, and see the classrooms and facilities where you’ll be working each day.
Day two of orientation also includes a special treat – your very own “Day of Beauty!” All of our new students visit the school clinic to meet with our current students and see how the campus salon is run. Our current students will then provide you with all kinds of beauty services – everything from haircuts and manicures to hair coloring and facials! You’ll get to see firsthand what it’s like to work on the clinic floor and talk to students about their experiences at Salon Success Academies.
