I have always wanted to make people look and feel beautiful. I am a makeup artist and wanted to pursue my dreams of also doing hair. A cosmetology license will allow me to explore different areas of the beauty industry without limits. My Hair dresser knew that I was interested in beauty school and recommended Penrose because she also attended the program and had a really positive experience and was able to find a great job right out of school.
