Congratulations to Julia Ellis for being Aveda Institute Dallas’s May Student of the Month!
Since she was in high school Julia started coloring her hair and watching YouTube videos on how to do hair and make-up. This new interest sparked a passion to pursue a career in Cosmetology. When it came time to select a school her coworker mentioned he had a friend who studied at Aveda and absolutely loved it here. Julia shared that she only toured Aveda because when she came to visit with Admissions she immediately fell in love with the school and the environment. It was definitely her fit.
Within the last 8 months Julia has felt like she has grown a lot personally and technically. When she first started school she was very shy but has now opened up a lot. She is able to be herself and most importantly works alongside people who do not judge others. Technically, she feels much more advanced since she started in Intro class with her speed and her hair cutting.
Julia said even with her guests she has grown. She treats every guest who sits in her chair as if they were her best friend. Every time Julia’s guests leave happy with their cut or color, she feels a sense of satisfaction and is reminded of why she is here pursuing her passion.
As soon as Julia graduates, she would like to advance in her skills and timing. She has been researching salons to find the right fit for her but her ultimate career goal is to become a celebrity stylist.
When asked what motivates her, Julia’s answer was herself and her classmates. Her advice to other students would be to not ever stop…keep on pushing!!
