FEATURED STUDENT: GIGI WU @GIGI_JONGW
"I Highly Recommend Suki's Advanced Academy."
WHAT HAVE YOU ENJOYED MOST?
GIGI: At Suki's, I have learned how to create hairstyles suited for clients by using the 3 basic shapes and the 4 techniques that I have acquired from the course. The shapes of the heads and the direction of hair growth also play important parts in designing the hairstyles. Because of these techniques, I have been given additional freedoms in my work.
WHAT WAS DIFFICULT?
GIGI: What I am finding difficult is when the clients themselves don't know what they want. Sometimes, they want me to reproduce a style that they had years ago. Sometimes, it's impossible to recreate now, because their hair/head conditions have changed or the techniques have changed over time.
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT?
GIGI: To make my clients happy has always been a big part of why I want to improve myself as a stylist. I don't want to stop at just getting better at hair cutting either. I want to learn about sales, managing, and how to maintain clientele. Second, to improve on my habits and my artistic ability. Suki's has a lot of resources which I can use to achieve these goals. In the future, I'd love to study abroad to improve myself even more.
ADVICE TO SOMEONE CONSIDERING SUKIS ACADEMY
GIGI: I thought I was a decent stylist. I already knew how to cut good haircuts before I joined the Academy. Little did I know how wrong I was. There are just so many things to learn here. I'm more confident in my ability to personalize and create a haircut for each client's need. The instructors do a great job of teaching people at different levels. I highly recommend Suki's Advanced Academy.
