BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND....
Why have you chosen cosmetology as a career? Ask yourself why you are becoming a cosmetologist/hairdresser. Is it to be a hairdresser in the salon, fashion, or film industry, or is it something else?
During your first year as a professional, what is going to be THE most valuable aspect of everything you learn in school?
This is what you should take into consideration when choosing the right school for you.
If you chose salon, fashion, or film industry, then you're going to love COLLECTIV Academy! We are for the serious-minded student who wants to grow artistically.
In our experience, the number one complaint of students graduating from cosmetology school is a lack of confidence. You have to consider that without being able to produce a WELL executed cut, color, or style, confidence in other areas will be harder to find.
At COLLECTIV Academy, we specialize in what we believe is going to give you the most confidence; that is in-depth cutting, coloring, and styling techniques that take you beyond the basics, while still exposing our students to all the disciplines of cosmetology.
We place high importance on developing your soft skills such as customer service, retailing, and marketing. We know that an in-depth understanding of technique in cutting, coloring, and styling is going to be the most valuable tool to help you deliver well-executed services in the salon so that clients return to you. Once you're confident with your technique, you're able to effortlessly combine your customer service skills and extend your focus on additional services; that's the confidence we believe in at COLLECTIV Academy.
BEGIN YOUR CAREER
Never worry about unemployment again. In order to achieve a successful career in hairdressing, you need to acquire the right tools; we help you do this by stepping up to go beyond expectations. You will learn to STEP UP in an artistic trade that has no limits to what you can experience. It's diverse and dynamic in what you can accomplish.
It's one thing to learn technique; it's another to develop a smooth style in your techniques that shows you know what you're doing. In order to become a top hairdresser, future educator, or platform artist, you must develop style. The love is in the details, and we help you focus on the details.
You will learn a language and method, giving you a deeper understanding of the education that takes place between you and the instructors. You will walk away, not mimicking haircuts and color, but understanding the "how and why." Our style is classic techniques with a current, modern tone that, when applied, creates success behind the chair.
We teach business etiquette for an excellent customer experience. After all, a client may not detect the difference between a "good" or "great" technical service, however they do know the difference when it comes to their experience. It can make or break you in this business.
In the world of social media, most individuals develop a personal brand, whether by accident or design. Branding is essential to how fast you build your business and how loyal your customers become. We start with how to develop your personal brand and how to engage that brand in marketing and social media. These principals can be taken into building your own business when you're ready. Take control of your brand!
