Jolie Academy Cherry Hill graduate Heather Alvarez was inspired to become a cosmetologist by the women in her family.
Both her grandmother and mother were cosmetologists, and Heather always enjoyed coming up with interesting hairstyles with her sister. “I’m a makeup addict,” said Heather. “So, I decided to go to cosmetology school to do what I love.”
Her hard work and dedication paid off. Heather recently graduated from Jolie Academy and has started a career she loves at HD Barber Co. in Westville, NJ.
“When I first came to the HD Barber Co., my first impression was…’ok’. I’m the only stylist and girl and it was a bit overwhelming at first. My co-workers were all very nice, so I felt welcomed. Now, I am over being overwhelmed. I feel confident. I am currently being taught barbering from the guys. They have been very patient in helping me better myself with male hair cutting.”
“I like it here because you can grow and really learn how to perfect your craft. Everyone helps each other here,” Heather said.
