On Monday, January 14th, the Cosmetology students had a workshop with Ms. Kristina Owens, Manager of CosmoProf (Monaca, PA) and CJs Salon Spa of Moon Twp. She gave strategies to students teaching them about the various processes of retail sales.
According to Katelin Groves, Cosmetology senior from Riverside (pictured interviewing with Ms. Owens), she states, “When I enrolled into Cosmetology, I thought that I wanted to own my own salon someday. After Ms. Owens’ presentation, she motivated me to achieve my career goal of owning a salon. She presented herself in such a professional way that it made a huge impression on me. She provided each of us a professional insight to other Cosmetology related professions that we might not have considered prior.”
Katelin felt that Ms. Owens gave the class such outstanding advice that included whole sale customer service needs, education on various products, and explained client consultation and just how critical that is in the business. Her presentation also included scenarios with products and exercises for selling them.
A big THANK YOU goes out to CosmoProf, our industry supporter, for the donations that they gave to our program and to Ms. Owens for her time spent with our students!
