Social Promoter of the Month: Kristen Wilson

Here at Summit Salon Academy, we not only pride ourselves on providing a competitive curriculum to help students succeed but we also pride ourselves on having some great students! Our students are talented, hard working, energetic people that give Summit Salon Academy the reputation that it has today by becoming the best at what they do.

Each month we feature a student that goes above and beyond what is needed to be a good student. This month’s social promoter is Kristen Wilson. Kristen is a perfect example of what it means to be a student at Summit Salon Academy by working hard, bringing a great attitude to work and school, and giving it her all.

About Kristen

Student Of The MonthKristen is the type of person who embraces a challenge. She works hard and loves what she does! She enjoys interacting with her clients and giving them the look and confidence they are searching for!  Kristen said, “I strive to make my clients look and feel their best by listening to what they want and communicating throughout the appointment what the end goal is.”

This is the attitude that we strive to instill in our students at Summit Salon Academy. We want them to learn how to provide an amazing experience to each and every client they come in contact with. Kristen’s top notch work ethic really came into view when she said, “I am a mom to 3 little girls and I love that I am showing them how to follow their dreams and do what they love.” Way to go, Kristen! Being an awesome mom while completing the cosmetology program at Summit Salon academy is no easy feat.

Why Kristen Chose Summit Salon Academy

When asked why she chose to attend Summit Salon Academy Kristen said, “I picked Summit Salon Academy because my personal hairstylist came here for her education and I really trust her. When I came in to tour the school everyone was really friendly and seemed happy being at school (or work) which was the environment I was looking for!” This is a common theme here at Summit Salon Academy where students who have completed the program are telling their friends and family about their experience. Creating a positive learning environment where students can feel comfortable and enjoy themselves is important to us at Summit Salon Academy. The result is that they want to share their great experience with those around them.

What Is In Kristen’s Future

HighlightsWhen our students graduate and move into the next phase of their amazing career, we want to make sure they never stop learning. At Summit Salon Academy we encourage our students to keep learning and expanding their knowledge in the field, even after graduation. When asked what she wanted to do after her graduation in January, 2018 Kristen said, “I [] want to find a salon I love that offers continuing education as well as do special occasion hair and makeup in my free time.” That’s what we like to hear! Keep striving to learn and improve, Kristen!


Kristen has it all figured out. We are proud to have her here and hope to see her become a leader in the industry in no time. She is a great representative of the Summit Salon Academy values! Way to go!
