Grad Testimonials

When I started school at TTIOC I was a different person than I am today.  School has matured me and made me a better person.  I have had to learn to be confident in my alilities, and to wake up and make the decision to speak life to myself and to the people I encounter.  Along with all of the personal growth, TTIOC has  given me a solid foundation of knowledge and skills.  I am a proud Nuts and Bolts Business Student of the Year graduate.  Nuts and Bolts has taught me how to give my clients 5 star customer service, to pamper them and send them home with the products and knowledge they need for their hair to look great everyday.  The consultation is the key to giving your clients what they want.  I have found so much excitement and inspiration in the Sassoon ABC way of cutting and haircolor techinques.  Techniques such as, combing the hair after applying haircolor to each section makes the color application through and the end result is flawless.    Having formulas for the haircuts takes the gussing away.  Sassoon techniques are truly hair architecture.  As I have grown as a hair stylist my personal style has also grown.  Lookong the part is very important.  The way you present yourself to the world shows your taste, and a lot of the time your standards.  TTIOC has given me high standards because they have high standards for their students.  I am so thnkful for everything my school has done for me.  They have nurtured me to be able to fly.

My experience at Total Transformation truly changed my life. I not only know how to work with all kinds of hair, but thanks to the Nuts and Bolts business class, I learned how to build a clientele, boost my revenue and build client loyalty. I couldn’t have asked for better instructors or a better learning experience!
