Showing my 12-year old daughter that she can do and be anything she wants. Follow your dreams. And establishing my business.
Master hairstylist Phillip Ivey has won an Oscar and been nominated five times for an Emmy. None of these awards, he says, is more precious than being inducted into the Tennessee School of Beauty Hall of fame in 2003. He has also garnered an Academy Award as part of the hair and makeup department of ‘Driving Miss Daisy’ which also snagged Oscars for Best Picture and Best Actress (Jessica Tandy).
You’re probably not familiar with my companies, or even my name, but you’ve seen my work on the magazines that you look at with your clients every day to use as reference points for new hair styles, fashion and make-up application.
TSB had a speaker who was a TSB grad and a famous make-up/stylist to the stars. It was incredible to hear how he had succeeded. He talked to our class about always following our dreams. It was inspirational.
Tennessee School of Beauty graduates have always been very well prepared. Their excellent work performance is a direct result of the instructors’ hard work and strong focus. We have hired many of their students and have long been impressed by their work ethics.
I get the opportunity to be with various personalities. From the employees to the clients, every day becomes a fabulous experience and I never wish the hours in a day to be over.
Salon Visage has been successfully hiring TSB graduates for 25 years, and plan on hiring them for the next 25. Need I say more?
Partnerships …it’s all about partnerships. My wife and business partner Mary, and I were Tennessee School of Beauty “sweethearts”. We all knew that TSB supported us as we grew in the industry. Now as salon owners we have a strong partnership with TSB, teaching classes for their students and relying on them as a excellent recruits for our salon. Thank you TSB.
I have to say a long overdue thank you to TSB I graduated in 2000 and have loved my profession ever since! I can proudly say I own my own home and have built an amazing clientele (booked about a month out)!!! I really owe it to the instructors for always pushing us to do better and to be a step ahead, it has really paid off! I now live in Miami, Oklahoma and have been doing hair for 11 years. Wow time sure does fly. I work at the best salon in the county voted 2 yrs in a row! Thanks again for the best education!!
