Graduate Jacelin Welch
Year of Graduation from LIBS – 2012
Q: Why did you choose a career in beauty?
I chose a career in beauty because I was always fascinated with fashion. I came to realize that my hair was my greatest accessory regardless of what I wore… so hair has been my thing ever since.
Q: Where do you work now and what is your specialty?
I’m a traveling stylist and I specialize in growing hair. I can do pretty much any style but my focus is always on the health of the hair, first.
Q: What is the biggest benefit of your career choice?
The biggest benefit of being a self-employed traveling stylist is that I schedule my work around my personal life. It’s the best of both worlds. I can spend time with my family and do what I love to do without missing out on either.
Q: What is your favorite memory from LIBS?
My favorite memory is when I won the Fastest Roller Set contest.
Q: Any advice for students, new graduates or people interested in a beauty career?
My number one advice is to always take care of yourself first. Because this business can be cutthroat and fast-paced, we can sometimes forget about our health, appearance or getting adequate rest. Always remember that you are a walking billboard for your brand.
