Mornings at Rizzieri: Gearing Up for a Creative Day

Unlike traditional classrooms, Rizzieri classrooms buzz with a contagious energy. Students begin to arrive at 8:30am, fill out the sign-in sheet, and set up their stations for the day’s agenda. Whether it’s mastering a color technique or trying a new style, each day brings a new opportunity to hone one’s craft. One of our hair students, Kayla, discusses how she expanded her craft by challenging herself to learn finger waves. She explains, “We just started them but I can see how it’s going to help with hand eye coordination, technique, and getting really good at the small details to make your final product look like what it should be.”

Deep Dives and Creative Explorations: A Hands-on Learning Experience

The heart of the Rizzieri experience lies in its focus on practical, hands-on learning. Our instructors, industry veterans themselves, guide students through a curriculum that blends theory with real-world application. Imagine a day where you can learn about the science behind hair coloring in the morning and spend the afternoon putting that knowledge to the test by creating stunning looks on mannequins or even classmates!

This focus on practical learning extends beyond the classroom walls. Events like the Fall Open House allow students to showcase their talents in a real-world setting, providing valuable experience and a chance to connect with potential clients, just like future salon owner, Jordan, aspires to do. She mentions, “Rizzieri helps me with being social and being open to new people,” which is critical to her goal of becoming a salon owner. 

Beyond the Classroom: Building Lifelong Friendships

Rizzieri isn’t just about academics; it’s about building a supportive community. The friendships forged within the walls of our school go far beyond graduation, as Summer echoes in her interview stating, “I chose Rizzieri because growing up, I had a lot of family, a lot of stylists who had gone to Rizzieri and know the teachers, know the environment, know how nice it is here. This school just has a really good reputation in the area.”

Tips For Success From Current Students

Being a student at Rizzieri is all about balance, where many juggle work and family commitments alongside their studies, like Mona. She recommends creating a morning routine that will set you up for success (and sticking to it). Additionally, Ava, another current student, emphasized the importance of listening to your instructors and paying attention in class as her biggest piece of advice for prospective students.
