Graduate Showcase-Rachel Bradley

1.Where are you from?

Las Vegas, Nevada

2.What was the defining moment in you choosing to attend cosmetology school?

I was working as CMA and knew I didn’t want to do that the rest of my life. I always enjoyed doing my friends hair growing up, so I decided to go to hair school. I went to Hays Academy and talked to them, then I started two weeks later!

3.What fears did you have and how did you overcome them?

I always heard it was hard to make it in this industry and build clientele and that I wasn’t going to make a good living! But, when I got out of school and started working full time at the salon I was also working two part-time jobs on top of that to make it. Now at 3 1/2 years In am working just at the salon with a full clientele.

4.What were some of your favorite aspects of Hays Academy of Hair Design and your time in school?

My favorite part of hair school was all the inspiration not only from videos and learning, but also from the instructors!

5.Where are you working now?

I work at Hairymolairys Hair with a Twist in Lindsborg, Kansas

6.How long have you been there?

3 1/2 years

7.Are you happy with your decision to enter this wonderful industry?

I love this industry and all that it has to offer. I feel so much joy and fulfillment every day from others and I get to make them feel beautiful about themselves!

8.What career goals do you have and what are your plans to achieve them?

I am always striving to learn and better myself in my career. I go to classes and hair shows to learn more and I also want to own the salon I am working in someday so I will stay there and work my way up! I love the small town living!
