Salon Success Academy Offers Community Feel for Redlands Student
Kenyetta Bedford has always loved doing hair. After making the move from the windy city of Chicago to sunny California about five years ago, Kenyetta knew she wanted to turn her passion into a career. She wanted a campus that was nearby that offered training preparation for the State Board exam. Salon Success Academy was the obvious choice.
She initially chose Salon Success Academy for its convenient Redlands location. It was close to her home and offered something other schools didn’t: a community. She says the best part about Salon Success Academy is the positive vibe. She felt a very personal connection with the Redlands campus, including the staff and instructors. Kenyetta says, “Miss. Natalie always made me feel comfortable.”
She still keeps in touch with friends she’s made along the way. Kenyetta says she loves staying connected to the Salon Success Academy community through social media.Facebook and Instagram have been a great way for her to stay up-to-date with all that her instructors and former classmates are doing.
She’s found motivation in all sorts of places, but most of all from her family. Both her mom and sister pursued careers in the beauty industry and always encouraged her to do the same. She says she’s happy that she followed in their footsteps.
Kenyetta Bedford graduated from the Cosmetology program in January 2015 at the Redlands campus, conveniently located off of I-10 on West Redlands Boulevard. She currently works at All Stars Barber & Beauty Salon in San Bernardino, CA.
