Brooklyn Miller, Cos Grad:

Brooklyn Miller grew up in Salem, Indiana and graduated from Salem High School in xxxx. From the time she was born, she has lived with her mom in her mom's salon that she has now owned for 20 years. As Brooklyn grew older, she realized she wanted to follow in her mother's footsteps. She knew what her chosen career entailed and it definitely suited her aspirations. During her senior year at Salem High School, she made a decision to attend PJ's College of Cosmetology in Clarksville to pursue her dream. She considered many different Cosmetology schools but felt from the beginning that PJ's College of Cosmetology was the place for her.
Upon entering school, she knew she wanted to open her own salon but she wanted to ensure success and wanted the perfect location. She graduated from PJ's on May 8th and after months of searching, she found a building in Salem to remodel. Making the biggest decision of her life, she decided to remodel and turn what was an ordinary building into her very own posh salon. It was extremely stressful and overwhelming at times but once it was finished it was all worth it. By June 1st she had her grand opening.
Opening up a charming salon at such a young age took a lot of courage and determination. She contributes her success to her mother for being such a strong role model and PJ's College of Cosmetology in Clarksville Indiana for making her dreams come true.
"PJ's has a fun and exciting atmosphere! They helped me reach my goals, fulfill my dreams and allowed me to meet many lifelong friends!"

Angelina Leezer, Cos Grad:

Angelina Leezer, a mother of 2 girls, like any other mother has wanted nothing but the best for them. She has encouraged her girls to pursue each and every dream. Angelina watched her youngest daughter graduate from high school and start her cosmetology career at PJ's College of Cosmetology. She became interested in everything that her daughter was learning. It looked like such fun and she grew more intrigued by the cosmetology world. In 2013, Angelina made the decision to get her G.E.D. and at 46 years of age, she enrolled at PJ's College of Cosmetology in March. She attributes her elevated skill level and success to not only PJ's teaching staff but to the state-of-the-art Pivot Point curriculum. Angelina graduated in May of 2014 and instantly began looking for a salon to apprentice in/a master stylist to study under. Her search led her to Ciao Bella Salon and Master Stylist/Salon owner Greg Combs. She could not imagine a more perfect salon and therefore calls Cia Bella her home. Ciao Bella is a Summit Salon, which means they receive non-stop education that will help her further and grow her own personal business. Education is a large part of their everyday life in the salon. Angelina has trained with Redken national educators such as Kris Sorbie (who invented the balayage highlight trend) and Lauren Hagan (national educator in color and cut for Redken). They have been given the opportunity to learn from other educators ranging everything from men's haircuts to formal finishing and updo's.
Ciao Bella Salon is a certified Redken and Eufora salon and is an elite Redken Summit Salon. There are less than a handful of Redken Summit salons in Louisville, KY.
In the short amount of time she has been working for Cia Bella, Angelina has become certified in Redken product knowledge, Eufora Product knowledge and the Redken color line.
"Due to my education at PJ's and my continued education at Ciao Bella Salon, I am being given the tools for success. I come to work invigorated and excited for what the day brings. I could not have done that without the education I received from PJ's."
