Let me take a minute to introduce myself! My name is Jolene and I have been in the Beauty Business in some form since I was 18 years old! That’s 25 years’ worth of experience that I want to share. Starting out as a cosmetologist I honestly never wanted to do anything else. Beauty Business was all I could imagine myself doing, consistently there was a line of people on Friday nights, in my bedroom waiting for me to fix their hair; and that started when I was 16 years old. Beauty has always been in my being. However, hair wasn’t the only thing I loved; I loved makeup, skin, and was a total beauty junkie. After 10 successful years of being a cosmetologist, makeup artist and carrying a full skin care line, I had a new opportunity. I began doing salt facials at an OBGYN office that was entering into the medical salt facial industry. After much prayer and consideration I decided to take the job and still continue with my hair business. One or two days a week turned into three and then four and I found that I loved facials as much as I did hair. I became a certified medical consultant, laser technician and certified to apply permanent makeup as well as 30 other certifications in the beauty industry. “Jane of all trades!” Another opportunity came my way and I was able to purchase my Medical Spa, which I had been running for the OBGYN group. I employ about 14 people in the beauty and weight loss industry at my Medical Spa, and look forward to being part of your journey.
Over the years I have worked with many graduates who are just getting just getting out of school, eager to launch their careers in the beauty industry! There is one thing I have consistently found; there is a gap between what a Beauty professional learns in school versus the actual skill set needed to make it in the fast paced ever changing Beauty Industry. At no fault of the teachers’ school, they need to prepare the student to pass their boards which, of course, are extremely important because they focus on sanitation and regulation.
Enchantment Beauty will be able to provide an advanced skill set and training opportunity to close the gap and help transition new professionals to skill application with their clients. I am passionate about bridging the gap in the industry and providing the opportunity for a cosmetologist or aesthetician to come out of school with excellent certifications and a skill set that will allow them to come into the industry and immediately have a solid foundation to start creating sustainable revenues. You must know your product and be fully invested; after 25 years of experience we have a solid foundation of products we use and are certified trainers also for those companies. We believe in the products we use and train for.
We now live in a digital world and offer some digital trainings, however, we still believe that hands on trainings are best for people in our industry. Hands on training is so important because we are a hands on industry designed to touch feel, and interact with our clients on a personal level. At Enchantment we believe there is nothing quite like being there. We want to see your work and how you are thinking and doing procedures so we can help your school and each student be their best!
