Each day at Jolie Academy, students attend classes in preparation for careers in the cosmetology and healthcare industries. And while these students may have different career goals, they were once all in the same place: the Jolie admissions office applying for a spot in one of our programs of study.
There’s a lot of talk in beauty circles these days about mineral makeup. Created from crushed minerals, it is a natural-looking makeup product that is lightweight and breathable. So, instead of covering up your skin and clogging pores like traditional liquid makeup and powders, it simply gives your skin a healthy glow. It also wears much better than traditional makeup products — especially in hot and humid environments where makeup can feel as if it’s melting off your face.
Mineral makeups may most commonly be associated with loose powders, but products are available for blushes, bronzers, eye shadows and lipsticks, as well.
On Wednesday, our Jolie campuses participated in a Cut-A-Thon to aid our New Jersey campus, where students and faculty have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. We had a great turn out. I was fortunate enough to be in our Wilkes-Barre location where they pulled out all the stops. The students and faculty came in early with their goodies and helped separate them into individual bags to sell to the customers coming in for the Cut-A-Thon. Everyone was excited and doing whatever they could to help get ready for the event.
Jolie Hair and Beauty Academy is coming together in a time of need to raise money and aid our sister campus in Northfield, New Jersey. This campus is located 8 miles from Atlantic City and has many students and staff members that have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. Jolie students will be holding a Cut-A-Thon to raise money for the families who are trying to rebuild from major devastation. Our schools will be donating 100% of every hair cut along with 25% of all other salon services to our students and staff in New Jersey.
