Bree Wood |
I truley love what I do for students here at The Beauty Institute. I have been in the cosmetology industry for 8 years as a stylist and as an educator. Now as a Placement Leader I have found a whole other side of this industry that I did not know existed. A whole other way to help people grow, explore, and expand their career opportunities in the beauty industry. I get to really know our students and help them pursue their dreams. I am the person that helps set their path for their careers and I am very honored for that.

Samantha Mason |
With almost 16 years in the beauty industry, I can truly say that I love what I do every day! I have worked in salons, traveled a lot, and spent the last 9 years working in Cosmetology schools. Being able to work with our students and see their growth/success reignites my passion every day. Our students and staff truly become your second family. My down time is spent with my family and outdoors as much as possible. I’m always up for the next adventure life tosses my way. “Never stop learning, because life never stops teaching.”

I graduated Cosmetology School in 2008 and became an Educator in 2010… and I don’t regret one second of it!! Being a part of this industry has always been my passion and my family has always been my inspiration to follow my dreams.
My favorite part of my career is meeting new people and watching my students graduate and pursue successful careers in this industry. “The only time you should ever look back is to see how far you have come!”

Youla Moussa |
I was one of the graduating students of The Vision Beauty Academy in 2005! As a home grown member of our team, I am very attached to the school, and find myself in love with the culture. I just knew there was no better team that I would have the opportunity to be a part of! “I’m so passionate about the program we offer, and now I have the opportunity to introduce students to the school that will change their lives.”
Since graduating, she decided to further her education because she wanted to be able to introduce others to the beauty industry, which she fell in love with. Youla began the educators program at The Vision Beauty Academy in hopes of being able to do so. Because of her passion Youla completed the program and became an instructor in the beginning of 2012.
Youla has made a huge impact on anyone who comes in contact with her, and hears her personal testimony.

I absolutely love working with the students and clients in our school. I always strive to share everything that I have learned along the way in my career. My advice to anyone in this industry is to always attempt to learn something new every day! When I am away from work, I love reading, listening to music, and spend time with my family and friends. “Always focus on the positive, avoid the negative.”

David discovered how passionate he was about the beauty industry after enrolling in a cosmetology program. It was a career path that he fell into and then fell in love with. David decided to further his career by studying skin care extensively. Through all of his education, David realized that his true passion was in educating others and helping them realize their greatest potential.
