My first day at the Style Academy | An Exciting Journey into the World of Hairstyling

Meet Sophia! One of The Style Academy’s Hairstyling students.

Follow Sophia as she shares a sneak peak into her journey as a student at TSA.

My first day at the Style Academy was both exciting and nerve-wracking. Despite feeling a bit anxious, I enjoyed the experience. Chatting with the other students, mainly thanks to Candyce’s friendly encouragement, made me feel more at ease in this new environment. Candyce did a great job of making everyone feel welcome, and it was nice to hear everyone’s stories after listening to Candyce share hers. Without that group interaction, I probably wouldn’t have reached out to anyone first to get a feel for the atmosphere. It was a great way to settle into my new life here at the Style Academy.

I also had the opportunity to start practicing hairstyling on a mannequin. It wasn’t too scary at first, but let me tell you, it’s much more challenging than it looks! Watching the teacher perform it effortlessly and then trying it myself was a real eye-opener. I found engaging with the group and receiving feedback from peers has been instrumental in refining my techniques. This hands-on learning approach at Style Academy has not only improved my practical skills but also encouraged me to think outside the box when it comes to hairstyling. Plus, I was thrilled to find that I was able to connect with one of my classmates. I hope we become good friends even after finishing at the academy.

Throughout the weeks, we learned many techniques like braiding, curling, straightening, and styling hair for formal occasions. It was a lot of fun trying out these different styles, but I have to admit, it was also quite challenging. I never thought hair could be so complex! After completing the assigned hairstyles and homework, I felt a sense of accomplishment. The support from instructors and peers at Style Academy has been invaluable, making this journey both educational and enjoyable. I am excited to see how my abilities will grow and what new opportunities will arise from my time at Style Academy.

Key Highlight

One of the highlights of my experience was receiving the hair kit provided by the Style Academy. It had an extensive collection of tools and products crucial for hairstyling, many of which I was unfamiliar with before. It was a pleasant surprise to not only discover the names of these tools but also learn their specific purposes. This newfound knowledge helped enhance my understanding of hairstyling techniques, boosting my confidence and skill set.

Looking to the Future

In conclusion, my first day at the Style Academy marked the beginning of an exciting journey into the world of hairstyling. The challenges, techniques, and experiences have all contributed to my growth as a budding stylist. The support and camaraderie of the Style Academy community have made this journey truly special so far, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of it. As I continue in the program, I am determined to excel and improve my skills over time, whether it’s during exams or on the floor! I am excited to see what the future at the Style Academy holds…
