With every class at Summit Salon Tacoma we strive to create an environment that can prepare students for the career that lies ahead. By incorporating marketing skills and career planning into our curriculum we hope to give each student an edge to assist them in building a strong foundation that can prepare them to sit for the state boards, as well as launch them into the future that they envision.
Each month we recognize one student who has taken these skills and lessons into their lives and begun actively working toward that future. This month, one student has gone above and beyond, showcasing his skills, and hustling to create his own dream. We are very excited to announce the social promoter of the month: William Rayon!
William loves his work and his clients! He is a hard worker who strives to give each of his guests a unique experience that will leave them happy and confident with their new look. When asked what sets him apart, William confidently answered:
“I think my drive to work hard, [my] creative background, and my personal standards push me to give my clients the best service I can.”
That drive is certainly shown in his accomplishments, as well as in his favorite studies, as is evident when he confidently answered what his favorite subjects at Summit Salon Tacoma are: “My favorite part of the program is balayage, haircuts, and blowouts. I love being able to create beautiful hair that looks natural and gives the client confidence to go out and face the world. I find that haircuts can be therapeutic to a client and [their] ever changing life.”
Why William Chose Summit Salon Academy
William was drawn to this school because “the professional environment and overall vibe of the school felt right.”
We love hearing this, as our culture and environment is one that we pride ourselves on, and one that we are constantly improving. We feel strongly that a positive, professional, environment creates a positive, professional cosmetologist.
That said, even with a professional vibe, we still give our students a chance to make their mark, and create their own unique style. This is shown no better than when William explained about his favorite subjects at Summit, and how he most enjoys working with his clients.
“I feel like my favorite work has been when a client sits in my chair and trusts me to give them something beautiful without too many limitations. When I get the chance to follow my vision of what I believe will look best, still reflect them, and give them confidence; they get the best of what I can give”
What William Sees ahead
Ready to graduate in May of 2017, William has made huge strides to prepare himself for what lies ahead. With his social media pages and website already online, William is ready to make waves. That doesn’t mean that he is done with his beauty education just yet, however.
“I plan to continue my education and keep practicing and exploring new techniques with hair.”
Perfect! An education is never complete, there is always some new technique and trend to learn and master. That is something we try to instil in each of our students, a love and hunger for learning, and William exhibits this, even if at times it was uncomfortable.
“This experience has pushed me out of my comfort zone and let me bond me with people I can’t imagine my life without.”
We truly are a family here at Summit Salon Tacoma, and hearing about the connections that people have created, and the lessons they have learned both in and out of the classroom shows the type of culture and community we hold.
We are glad you have felt that, William!
