The new month puts a new Future Professional in the spotlight for their hard work and devotion to their success. This month, we are recognizing a Future Professional who has stood out and gone above and beyond in everything they do. Our July Future Professional of the month is Danny! We are excited to learn about Danny’s life before beauty school as well as hear about his experience with PMTS thus far.
Danny is retired from the military and has a loving family supporting him through this journey. Having traveled as a child and during his time enlisted, Danny has a great love for travel and exploring diverse cultures. He remembers falling in love with traveling during his childhood when his grandparents took him road tripping to visit all of the US capitals. Being the seasoned traveler that he is, Danny is also bilingual and able to speak several languages such as German and Arabic. After 20 years in the military serving as an Army Medic and acting Barber for his buddies in the barracks, he decided this industry made the most sense for his future. He has always had a passion for working with his hands to create stunning visuals and finds that his most tranquil moments are those being spent creating a beautiful style on a guest.
Choosing the right program or school for your desired career isn’t easy and requires a lot of consideration. In Danny’s own words, “I must have interviewed each school 3-4 times, and Paul Mitchell was the pinnacle redundantly”. He chose Paul Mitchell because of the down-to-earth, fun, and sophisticated aura that projected on him during his first tour with us. There’s no doubt that Danny has learned a lot since his first day in Core. He tells us that so far the most important thing that he’s learned is that it’s never too late to get started on your goals. Admitting he was somewhat intimidated by a new career and new peers who are half his age, Danny confirms that all of his classmates treat each other as equals regardless of age or background.
Following his graduation, Danny’s goal is to open his own Salon Spa & Barbershop here in Colorado Springs. He’s excited to complete his three programs, Hairstyling, Cosmetology, and Barbering, so he may jump to the next step of his journey. Danny was nominated because he always keeps a smile on his face, pushing his classmates to better themselves constantly and helping to reinstate their confidence. He strives to take as many guests and different services as possible so he will have a well-rounded skill set for the future. Congratulations Danny, keep being a visionary!
