At Summit Salon Academy Tacoma, we believe that highlighting our students in one of the best ways to help them grow in confidence. All of our students shine, but this month we wanted to feature a cosmetology student who really stood out. The social promoter for the month of October is Alexandra Brown! Congrats, Alexandra!
Alexandra loves to share her passion for hair with her clients.
“I love cutting hair! I know the feeling of removing dead weight off of my shoulders and how refreshing it feels to get a new cut. Nothing I love more than cutting inches off of a client[!]”
We love to hear what our students enjoy the most about their programs. Alexandra shared her personal fav:
“[I] feel my forte is ethnic hair and natural styling but I’ve been told I can kill a color appointment! Creativity and hair color go hand in hand. You’re the artist, it’s up to you!”
Cosmetology is the perfect program to express yourself and your artistic dreams. Our excitement for people like Alexandra is uncontainable! In addition to hearing her favorite part of cosmetology in general, we wanted to hear what Alexandra thought about the program, and get her feedback on her favorite part of the instruction.
“Up do’s! You have to put your creative cap on and create. Taking technical skills and your mind, you never know what you’ll end up with.”
Why Alexandra Chose Summit Salon Academy
“I chose this school because I love the owners and [the] culture they have created in the school. It’s all about the school and the teachers belie[ve] in you to be something great.”
During our student’s time here, we try to ensure that they are not only getting a thorough education, but that they are making friends, becoming even more passionate, and creating lasting relationships with clients, students, and staff members.
Client relationships are some of the most important connections you can make. As a cosmetologist, they can make or break your career. We asked Alexandra why clients should book with her, how she makes clients comfortable, and what sets her apart from other stylists they might book with.
“My chair is the place to be because I love to laugh and have fun with my clients! Not only will they get a great service with a more than satisfying outcome, but they will have someone they can call their friend. Who doesn’t need more of those?”
Alexandra also said,
“Laughter is the perfect medicine, it also makes for the perfect icebreaker.”
Alexandra went on to tell us what made her unique, “My style and individuality. I try to keep a sharp and fresh look every week. If I don’t look new and try new things on my self then how can my clients trust me to take them to new levels[?]”
What the Future Holds
We love when our students set goals. Summit Salon Academy Tacoma believes that goals help shape our students into prosperous professionals in the future. Alexandra has big dreams when it comes to her future:
“Own my own shop. A lot of people don’t know but I love barbering and braiding. So a barbershop is definitely in the works. On the other hand I will always be available for all types of services via freelance.”
“I graduate next August, so new clients will have plenty of time with me!” Alexandra joked. We are happy to see her excel in her program, and we wish her the best on all her future endeavors!

Keep it up Alexandra!
