It’s been a year or two since I’ve stepped into a classroom but a few weeks ago I got the chance to be an Esthetics student at MC College. As part of their ‘Student For a Day’ program, my day started out with a tour of the campus: the Artego Creative Lounge (where students from the Esthetics, Hairstyling and Fashion Design program collaborate to create looks for a photo shoot), makeup room, classrooms and spa area. In the spa facility, there were several massage/facial rooms where students practice on each other and do services on clients.
In one of the spa classrooms, new students to the Esthetics program were practicing leg waxes on each other. In another classroom, student were working on nail art and capturing their work on Instagram and Facebook. During my day as a student, I was treated to a spa manicure where I was also shown the step by step learning and evaluation process that students go though for each service they do on clients.
After a morning of pampering, I was shown proper leg waxing techniques and was able to put my waxing “skills” to the test by waxing the Esthetic students’ legs and brows (I still can’t believe they trusted me to wax their brows!!). I was also able to speak to a few of the students about their experience at MC College and why they were interested in the industry:
‘Student For a Day’ is a program that helps prospective students learn about the industry and their future career path. In this one day program, Students take part in theoretical and practical learning, and get an insight of what life is life as a student at MC College. The ‘Student For a Day’ program is open to High School students interested in a career in the beauty industry and for those who are looking for a career change.
