Wade Gordon Hairdressing Academy Full Life Makeover

Jennifer is a single mom with two jobs. She works full time in customer service and is a waitress on the weekends. She barely has time to spend with her son and almost needs another job to pay for his daycare. She is stuck and doesn’t know what to do.

One day, Jennifer gets online to find a salon where she can get her hair cut. Her salon isn’t very consistent and never cuts her hair right. She finds Wade Gordon Hairdressing Academy while she’s searching and notices that they start classes every two weeks.

Jennifer has always been passionate about hair, style, and fashion. She never understood how her cosmetologists always got her hair wrong. She loves fashion, and the only relaxing part of her busy day is fixing her hair, makeup, and nails before work.

She worries about her schedule and how she could fit school into her hectic life. It is almost too good to be true. But she could never afford it.

Just as she is about to close the window, her cursor moves over the financial aid options available to Wade Gordon Hairdressing Academy students. Once she learns about how she can fund her education, there’s no decision to make. She enrolls in Wade Gordon Hairdressing Academy and gets ready for a life she enjoys.

Jennifer is a single mom and a proud business owner. She opened a hair salon with the lifelong friends she made in cosmetology school. They all have a knack for fashion and hairstyles and have changed their lives with Wade GordonHairdressing Academy Cosmetology School. Jennifer does what she loves and spends the rest of the day with her son after school.
