Salon Success Academy
You Can Do Better Than “Assembly Line” Hair Salons at the Mall
So, you want to become a stylist or cosmetologist? To learn how to cut, style, color, highlight, and beautify hair while also being your own boss? But it can cost upwards of $20,000 to go to beauty school, and even afterward many licensed beauticians still find themselves working at “assembly line” hair salons at the mall for minimum wage. That’s probably not what you had in mind. Angie Prock of Hair By Angie at Salons de Beauté in Lawton, Oklahoma sees a hole that needs to be filled in the training and learning processes within the beauty industry, and she believes that she has an idea for how to fill it.
That’s why Angie is proud to announce the Salon Success Academy, now open for applications at Salons de Beauté in Lawton. Fresh out of some potentially impersonal beauty school that left you out quite a bit of money and without a lot of follow-up in terms of job placement or career advice? Angie wants you to enjoy the benefits of a professional mentoring relationship with an established stylist. The Salon Success Academy will provide qualified applicants with additional training and plenty of insider knowledge and beauty tips that you may not have learned in beauty school in order to help you grow as a professional. Then, once you’re ready to take the next step, you’ll already have a start in the industry, as well as the potential for your own suite at Salons de Beauté. As a stylist with more than two decades of experience in the industry, Angie can help you reach your dreams without having to barely get by at the mall.
Who is Stylist Angie Prock?
A proud “Army brat,” Angie Prock began studying cosmetology in high school while her family was stationed in Germany. Her early career looked much the same as that of so many aspiring stylists: she went to beauty school, got a job at a typical “assembly line” mall salon, worked her way up to manager, and then left to seek her own fortune. Over the years she has owned two salons of her own but really found a happy home at Salons de Beauté in Lawton, where she feels like she has the freedom to control her own space while also benefitting from the resources offered by Salons de Beauté.
With 25 years of hair and cosmetology experience under her belt, Angie has done it all: “Everything from the neck up,” as she puts it, from cutting and styling hair to deep conditioning, bleaching, colors and highlights, color fixing, men’s grooming, perms, natural hair, and much more. She loves to work with a diverse clientele in Lawton, Oklahoma, and is looking forward to the opportunity to bring some of her experience and expertise to other stylists and beauty professionals. That could be you!
The Benefits of the Salon Success Academy
If you’re a fresh beauty school grad looking to get a start in the beauty industry, you can train with Angie at the Salon Success Academy in her suites at Salons de Beauté in Lawton, Oklahoma. What you need is a desire to grow and prosper in the industry, as well as a license from the Oklahoma State Board of Cosmetology and Barbering (OSBCB) or your pre-licensing test work permit. The right applicant will also be a resident of the Greater Lawton, OK region who is ready to earn while you learn by letting your passion for hair flourish with the help of a seasoned professional who can give you the tips you need to be successful.
“So often, beauty schools don’t give beginning stylists the tools and training they need to really get started or to feel at ease with their clients,” Angie says. “With Salon Success Academy, you can grow your clientele without the struggle of high booth rentals, and with the goal of eventually transitioning to running your own business.” From simple things like brooms and towels to tips on how to maximize revenue and improve day-to-day earnings, Angie knows what it takes to succeed in the beauty industry, and she’s here to help you!
