My name is Judy, you can call me Jude or whatever is comfortable. The picture at the left was me when I decided to go back to school at 45. I will be 57 next August and I am very happy I made it this far in my life. I always wanted to be a cosmetologist, but it wasn’t until I was 45 that I went to beauty college to fulfill my dream. Can you imagine how an older person might feel out of place with young people that could be their children or grandchildren and trying to learn something totally alien to them? The kids were pretty cool about me being so much older.
I took this education very seriously unlike when I was young and thought I already knew everything. After I got use to school I found it very enjoyable learning new things. The part I enjoyed most was cutting and learning hair design. I liked color also, but I hated perms well I didn’t hate them I just couldn’t make my fingers work right when roding the head because my fingers are double jointed and they would catch sometimes. So I was never fast enough.
It was a great course and I learned many things. Of course you learn much more when you are practicing in the salon and there are always beauty shows to attend and learn new techniques and your always learning new and exciting things in house. Your learning never stops unless you quit for whatever reasons.
Since it was a part of my life and I have this knowledge I might as well use my education here maybe it will help someone or at least I hope so. I would appreciate any comments you care to make and if you have questions about anything I will give you my advice if you need it.
