Bellezza Salon is where i began my career as a Cosmetologist. While working there I received a better understanding of myself as a stylist and what it is like to work in a salon as a whole by not only working on my own clients but apprenticing and learning through my co-workers. All of my techniques and timing got perfected to the best of my ability with constant practice on manikins when I did not have a client or was not needed. I really felt that I got to express myself at this salon and figure out what I specialized in. My duties as an employee there ranged from hair cutting, hair coloring, hair styling for weddings, school dances etc, keratin treatments, eyebrow and facial waxing, air brush and traditional make up, gel polishing nails, designing nails, maintaining a tanning bed, assisting my boss and fellow stylists, keeping up with sanitation and laundry of the salon throughout the day, running the front desk and register, answering the phone, booking and adjusting appointments, keeping the color room stocked and organized,and being a positive addition to the salon while keeping a smile on my face to ensure everyone was in an upbeat mood from when they walked in the door until they left with their beautiful new style.
