Hair isn’t the only thing growing round here. ARROJO, Gotham’s hottest hairdressing brand, now has two standout beauty schools in Manhattan, with the Grand Reopening of its SoHo school location slated for May 18.
In 2015, the original ARROJO Cosmetology School in SoHo moved to the larger ARROJO Tribeca due to demand outstripping space. After ongoing growth in its new home, ARROJO Cosmetology continues its commitment to creating beautiful careers as the second location in SoHo gets set to offer Cosmetology and Barbering Programs.
“The success of our students and alumni proves the value of a great vocational education,” says Nick Arrojo, Owner & Founder of ARROJO. “We’ve put more than 500 graduates into the wide world of beauty. Our expansion, in physical space and the addition of the Barbering Program, will empower passionate artists to live their dreams.”
Featuring two classrooms, retail store, 18-chair student salon, and a layout that mimics the industrial minimalism of ARROJO studio, the 5,000 square foot refurbished facility with especially made red leather hairdressing chairs, exclusive to the SoHo location, offers a boutique experience for students to flourish.
“I have been a part of ARROJO Cosmetology School for 10 years. The culture of craftsmanship, creativity, and excellence we have fostered is essential to our growth,” says Loretta O’Connell, Executive Education Director. Now we can offer high-caliber, career-shaping education in two locations, and across two different programs.
The State accredited, 600-hour barbering program includes all State Board barbering requirements (fundamental cutting, styling, shaving) plus ARROJO men’s classic scissor and razor cutting techniques.
“Barbering and men’s grooming in general is cool again. We want to elevate this art and craft with modern classic techniques,” adds Nick. “The program includes scissor over comb, using square-shoe sectioning patterns, layering, graduations, and other techniques that we believe are appropriate for 21st century barbers intent of creating contemporary and cool men’s looks.”
ARROJO Cosmetology School aims to give a well-rounded, inspirational, and careershaping education so that students can graduate with a skill set that paves the way for lifelong achievement. Students learn professional skills like client communication, retail performance, presentation skills, creative expression, and business building.
After a Grand Reopening Party on Thursday, May 18th at the SoHo location at 56 King Street, NYC, the first SoHo cosmetology class kicks off June 19, 2017, and features regular sessions taught by pioneer of modern creative hairdressing, Nick Arrojo. The first Barbering Program start date is September 18, 2017.
