You may recognize her name from our Instagram. From purple balayage to granny hair, she is slaying it in the colour game. Our Student of the Month goes out to Danae Desjardins from the Winnipeg campus! “Danae works extremely hard and is a great role model to all her peers …her technique is out of this world…she has the drive and dedication. She wows the teachers; she wows all of us!” says Anna McGregor, MC College Director.

 

Why did you choose Hairstyling as a career?
“When I met my Hairstylist, she inspired me to get into it. It’s a good way to help people feel confident about themselves…that’s something that my Hairstylist helped me with…lots of people look at Hairstyling as superficial but they don’t know that we work hard and that there’s so many paths you can take.”

Lighting is everything as you can tell in the two left hand side pictures. Shadow roots 😎One of my regular and favourite clients! Took her from her black roots to a solid grey.

What do you like most about Hairstyling so far?
“Colours and barbering. Colours are fun ‘cause you can do a huge transformation. Sometimes it can be tedious and stressful but it’s so gratifying at the end. I like barbering because a lot of guys wait until they look like monkeys before they get cut. After you give them a cut, they look like a new person!”

What has surprised you the most about beauty school?
“How hard hair cutting is! You can’t just pick up shears and do whatever…Before realizing I wanted to be a Hairstylist, I thought it was just something people did for fun. It’s a huge thing and always will be. Before, I didn’t know about hair competitions or being a platform artist…there’s so many opportunities”

 

What do you love about MC College?
“The people are awesome and the clients and staff members too. It’s a welcoming atmosphere. The teachers are always there to help us and they make you feel excited to learn.”

What are your plans for the future after graduating?
“I want to enter the NAHA’S and Contessa’s. It’s so much fun to get out there and see what you can do…Come and watch my career. In five years, I’m going to have a business and I am going to make something big out of this”.

Danae recently landed her dream job at Sapphire Lounge.

What is the best advice you’ve received about the industry, beauty school or career?
“There are always going to be people who put you down for going to hair school…ignore them. If you’re passionate just go for it and it’ll never feel like work for you. Passion is what’s going to build your business and make you more successful than the people who bring you down”
