Exciting things are happening in the Cosmetology Department at Remington College – Cleveland East Campus, as students demonstrate their artistic abilities – and bring accolades and prizes home in the process.
February 14, 2012, was another day to remember, as students Sean Farine and James Yerich entered the P&G Salon Professional Student Competition, part of the 2012 annual America’s Beauty Show®. Each student completed a makeover on a model, submitted a before and after photo, and waited to hear if they were chosen as a finalist in the student competition.
Remington College Cosmetology Student Is a Chosen Finalist
Out of 150 student entrants, Sean Farine was chosen as a finalist to compete in the Clairol Professional Color Competition on March 5, 2012, in Chicago.
Sean’s model was Amber Kapas, who designed and made her dress to complement the hairstyle and color that Sean had chosen for her.
The color was very strategically planned to replicate peacock feathers. Sean created the look with the help of his assistant, Charles McMillon, and then presented the model to the judges and millions of people who were at the show or were viewing it live over the Internet.
Under the guidance of Cleveland Cosmetology Instructor Dawn Kapas (a finalist for the “Instructor of the Year” portion of the competition), Sean completed the look that won second place, which came with a $500 cash prize and year’s supply of Clairol products.
Cosmetology Instructor Credits Remington College Staff for Support
“We would like especially to thank our Librarian Laurie Green for the lead, our Instructor Dawn Kapas, our Campus President Patrick Resetar, and everyone who supported our students’ dreams. This was a very exciting time for all of us at Remington College – Cleveland East Campus,” said Cosmetology Department Chair Lenora Cruz-Price.
