It's always exciting to see our students get out and use their skills for success. Former student Chad Seale is a perfect example of how hard work pays off. After studying engineering at the University of Wyoming, Chad decided that the motivation he would need for success, just wasn't there. Chad made a major change and decided that a career in Hair Design was what he was truly passionate about. Like many students, Chad had a lot of ups and downs as he tried to learn the art of Hair Design. There were difficult days when he just felt that he would never "catch on." Chad, however, is not easily deterred, he was not about to let a few setbacks keep him from reaching his goals. Chad kept working hard to perfect his skills, continued to attend advanced education and listened to the advice of other successful stylists who were willing to mentor him. Several years later, it is obvious that Chads hard work and persistence has paid off. Last year Chad was nominated for two North American Hairstyling awards, and this year his work has been published in several national and international magazines. Chad has also had the opportunity to assist Global Hair Stylist of the Year Phillip Wilson. Looks like that career change was a great choice!
