Ever since I was little I have LOVED hair and makeup and have always wanted to go into Cosmetology. I never had the guts to go for it until I toured Penrose and my husband pushed me to go after what I loved. What stood out about Penrose? The atmosphere! I loved the mini mission statement and the enthusiasm of the teachers and students. It seemed like an empowering place to be and I knew instantly it was the place for me.
