When you’ve been working hard to develop a new skill, you want a chance to put your talent to the test! Here at Houston Training Schools, we understand that you are serious about a career in beauty and want a chance to shine in a professional atmosphere. That’s why we make sure to give our students plenty of opportunities to cultivate their beauty skills through regular clinic services with real customers and exciting events like hair shows. This type of real-world experience helps students build up a repertoire of useful tactics, from styling under a deadline to taking credit for and receiving constructive feedback on their work.
One of the ways we are able to offer such helpful events is through our relationship with CHI®. We recently celebrated our CHI Partner School status through an impressive showcase of our students’ hair styling prowess.
CHI Hair Show
On February 9, 2018, our cosmetology students got to display their hairdressing skills at a hair show hosted at the Main Campus. Students from all four of our Houston campuses were in attendance, giving everyone an opportunity to network and discover new approaches to hair styling. The show was held on the anniversary of our registration as a CHI Partner School.
The looks our students came up with were truly extraordinary. From bold dyes and glittering accessories to braided masterpieces and bouncy curls, our students demonstrated their ability to create a multitude of unique hairstyles using CHI products.
Why We Chose to Be a CHI Partner School
Being a CHI Partner School helps our students take their skills to the next level. Farouk Systems, the company that makes CHI, BioSilk®, SunGlitz®, and Esquire Grooming products, is a highly respected brand that hairdressers and stylists will need to be familiar with throughout their careers. Having access to these products through reasonably priced student kits makes Houston Training Schools more affordable and accessible for those looking to break into the beauty industry.
The CHI Environmental School Program also provides exceptional learning opportunities to CHI Partner Schools and their students and instructors. For example, some participating schools can take classes hosted by CHI educators and artists and register for fun and informative events like:
- Project CHI Boot Camp: An intensive one- or two-day class to whip your hairdressing skills into shape.
- CHI Instructor Trainings: Multi-day CHI Educator certification programs for passionate beauty instructors.
- Educational Symposium: Workshops and a hair show so instructors can stay current with hair trends and teaching practices.
- Student Artist Prep Class: A three-day class that teaches students the technical and presentation skills they need to become successful platform artists.
- Farouk Systems Conference: A five-day biannual conference dedicated to all things hair.
These programs offer real value to everyone at Houston Training Schools. Our very own instructor, Oralia Carranza, was even chosen as CHI’s 2017 Instructor of the Year, a very high honor!
Where It All Began
It truly feels like time has flown by since we teamed up with CHI last year at our 2017 launch party. Farouk Shami, founder of Farouk Systems, came to speak in-person with our students and instructors, and stylists got to show off their magnificent red-carpet hairstyles for all the guests.
Our most recent hair show will not be the last of our events with CHI. Current and future students and instructors will continue to benefit from the education and programming CHI provides. Some of our top students may even want to set a goal to work alongside top industry professionals as platform artists or win a spot to go on stage at the biannual conference!
