Happy New Year to all our students, prospective students, and clients from the community. We had a wonderful year, full of highlights and good moments, and we could not have done it without you. Thank you for all you have done with SHNH Beauty Academy, and we look forward to a great year to come.

2018 is upon us and we thought we’d share a few brief thoughts on attending beauty school for all those of you who have not yet taking the plunge and started your beauty education in cosmetology or esthetics. Our beauty academy is here for people who want to become cosmetologists, hairdressers, makeup artists, and anyone who wants the skills to work in the beauty industry.

If you’ve been sitting on the fence, wanting to do it but not being fully sure, let us encourage you: 2018 is YOUR YEAR. Don’t let another year go by where you’re wanting, hoping, and longing for your breakthrough into the career that will make you happy. By this time next year, you could be the proud possessor of a cosmetology license. You could be working in the industry, doing a job you love, making your clients beautiful.

If cosmetology is your destination but life keeps throwing obstacles in your way, 2018 is the year to rise up and conquer.

  • You know why you’re going after this.
  • You’re hungry for it.
  • You’re tired of letting things stop you.
  • You’re tired of letting yourself talk yourself out of getting started.
  • You’re brave.
  • You’re willing to try new things.
  • You’re willing to go out on a limb, and you’re confident that this is a limb that won’t break.
  • You’re going to thumb your nose at all the nay-sayers.
  • You’re going to show the world that you’re a person who CAN.
  • You can get things done.
  • You can face your fears.
  • You can pass your courses.
  • You can realize your dreams — not just follow them, but see them become reality.

Becoming a cosmetologist is about far more than just cutting hair. It’s about establishing yourself, breaking free of the slavery to retail and other minimum-wage jobs, and giving you a license to tap into your artistic side every day rather than just being a minion o a drudge.

Becoming a cosmetologist is about YOU. This is what you want, and you deserve to achieve it. Yes, you’ll have to study. Yes, you’ll encounter obstacles. Yes, you might sometimes wonder how you’ll pull it off, especially if you’re working your way through school. But you will pull it off.

Just think about when you come to that glorious graduation day when you’re finally a licensed cosmetologist. The smile on your face will reflect all the pride and the happiness in your accomplishment. Because it is a true accomplishment. It is not for the faint of heart. It is for the bold and brave of the world who say to themselves, “I will seize my moment, and it will be this year.”

2018 is your year. Don’t pass up this moment.

See you inside the course. We’ll be celebrating with you when you join. It’s a big step. It’s worth taking. Don’t wait. Do it today.
