Hair Education Journey
After Brooke graduated high school, she attended UNLV in Las Vegas, Nevada. She took several classes trying to figure out what to study. Brooke realized the typical college life wasn’t the right for her. Frustrated, she thought about what she loved to do. Memories of styling her family’s hair for special occasions flooded in. Maybe the beauty industry was for her. She asked her mom what she thought about the idea, and without hesitation, her mom enthusiastically agreed.
How to Quickly Become a Stylist
Brooke went to school for long hours and eventually graduated from the Academy of Hair Design completing 1600 hours in a record ten months. Right after hair school, she joined the assisting program at THS. Much like school, her determination and hard work quickly paid off. She flew through the assistant program to become a full-time stylist.
An Important Lesson
During Brooke’s time assisting at The Hair Standard, she said she learned a lot from the program. She says, “I feel like, more than anything, I learned how important stylist and client interaction is.” We can see that. Brooke cares about her client’s needs!
That Perfect Balayage
Brooke loves a well-blended balayage. She gets a certain satisfaction out of teasing out the perfect blend. As you can imagine, this is not the easiest of tasks. But, like a painter with a brush, Brooke has mastered the art of subtle dimension.
Sticking to her Root (Touch-ups)
Root touch-ups aren’t the most exciting service. But they are consistent and a staple of steady business! While a balayage is processing, you can do a root touch-up on another client. Double booking keeps Brooke busy all day. No wonder she is excited.
Getting the perfect cut that works for you is Brooke’s top priority. While her go-to specialty is timeless shoulder-length layered cuts, she loves aiding clients to find their perfect cut in the consultation process. She says “the right haircut is seriously life-changing.”
Brookes loves getting out of the house to get her mind off the daily stresses of life. So anytime she has that opportunity, she takes it! Brooke also spends a lot of her spare time with her family, especially her nieces. She also loves going on hikes at Redrock with her puppy, CoCo.
