Student Leaves Her ‘Mark’ On The Makeup Industry

February ’12

One student at Salon Success Academies is already leaving her mark on the beauty industry. Janet Martinez is a full-time cosmetology student at the Upland Campus and an instructor of a professional makeup artist course at My Beauty Mark.

Janet grew up surrounded by licensed cosmetologists and always enjoyed doing hair and makeup. She was working as a nurse at a pediatric clinic, but decided it wasn’t the right fit for her.  That’s when she took a tour at Salon Success Academies. She was impressed with what she saw.

“The instructors are always encouraging me. My classmates are my best friends. It feels like home here. My only regret is not enrolling sooner,” Janet said.

Before enrolling at Salon Success, Janet took a professional makeup course at My Beauty Mark in Fontana, California. The owners were impressed by her makeup skills and offered her a job as an instructor. But Janet’s makeup skills weren’t the only thing that impressed the owners.

“She’s great. She’s outgoing. She’s always positive. I give her something to do and she always it gives her best,” Leticia Ruiz, one of the owners of My Beauty Mark said.

In the professional makeup class, Janet is teaching things like the color wheel, face structure, contouring, foundation matching, natural makeup, high fashion makeup, and air brushing. She said she loves sharing her passion and watching how different people learn.

Janet will graduate from the cosmetology program at Salon Success Academies in November 2012. After graduation, she plans on going to fashion design school so she can give someone a complete makeover, from head to toe. She aspires to one day travel the world as a celebrity stylist.

“I love helping people transform into a better version of themselves and making them look like a million bucks!” Janet said.

If you’re like Janet and passionate about helping others transform their looks, Salon Success Academies can give you the training you need to start a new exciting career in the beauty industry!
