Even though some have questioned pursuing a career in cosmetology during these uncertain times, we remain confident that people will always need and seek the professional services of cosmetologists. Our confidence has been reinforced by the career paths of our recent graduates, including Ryan Tucker, a late Summer graduate from our cosmetology school in Overland Park. Ryan will soon be joining the team at Salon Ado in the West Plaza area of Kansas City!
Academy News | Cosmetology Schools, Kansas & MissouriCongratulations, Summer 2020 Graduates!
The coronavirus pandemic that began this past Winter into Spring really rocked the world of cosmetology, including cosmetology institutions like Z Hair Academy and our four cosmetology schools in Kansas and Missouri. But this pandemic has not stopped our fearless students or us. That’s why we wanted to take a moment to congratulate all of our awesome Summer 2020 graduates!
Flexibility Was Key
According to an educator at our Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Overland Park, Kansas, flexibility has been the key to getting through these trying times. For a while, all learning had to shift to virtual. We were even able to hold our sixth annual Career Fair in June 2020 virtually, which was a big success! Our students embraced the changes. In fact, Sydney Tuttle, who graduated on June 17, graduated with perfect attendance! It was clear that Sydney and her classmates were as committed as ever.
Safety Remains a Priority
“When we were able to return to in-person learning, we set standards based on local recommendations, which have remained in-place as needed,” said Judi McKenzie, the co-founder of Z Hair Academy, who continues to provide education to students. “Although masks can be hot and uncomfortable at times, we appreciate all of our students and staff who have complied with such direction and other precautions put in place.”
The Future is Bright
“I only have great things to say about my experience at Z,” said Meredith Brummell, a graduate from our cosmetology school in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, who is now a stylist at Salon Envy in Lee’s Summit. “My instructors were hands-on, and I felt 100 percent comfortable transitioning from school into my career. I was able to find a job while still attending school because of the resources Ron and Judi provided for me. I highly recommend Z!”
