She specializes “curly” hair, which means she works with people who either want to get their hair curled or people that naturally have curly hair. What is most interesting about Sondra, is that after going through her courses, she was able to find a niche in which to excel in within the industry.
Our students work in-house even before completing the course to practically apply and improve their basic skills. Also, after graduating, they get a chance to work in any one of Michael Levine’s Salon before they are released into the vast hairdressing world. After our thorough course, our graduates eventually become licensed hairdressers and as such can choose to work in a registered and recognized hair salon to sharpen their skills and later venture as a solo freelance stylist or even open their beauty and salon parlor. This comes with the advantage of being in control of your income. The more the clients you work on, the more you earn, together with other commissions, if any. Our graduates are also in a better position to control their schedule, around their personal life and career ventures. You don’t have to work a regular 8 to 5.
