‘Master Apprentice’ Winner is Growing her Career at ARROJO

Empire Alumni | March 13, 2013

Nick Arrojo teaching Master Apprentice

A couple of weeks ago we stopped in at the ARROJO Studio in New York City to see how Kristie McGunnigle, winner of Empire’s ‘Master Apprentice’ contest, was doing with her apprenticeship now that she has been there for a few months.  Kristie, a graduate from the Empire Beauty School in Williamsport, Pennsylvania won the online contest, beating out 500 other Empire students for the chance to work with Nick Arrojo at his world famous salon in SoHo.  As soon as we saw Kristie, we could see that she was fitting in with the Arrojo team and the New York City life.  She changed her hair and became very trendy in her style.  Not to say that she wasn’t before but she is definitely adapting well.  Kristie says she is growing as a stylist each day and learning more than she ever thought she would.  In addition to her assisting duties on the salon floor, Kristie takes classes on ARROJO cutting techniques.  “She reminds me a lot of myself at her age. A small  town kid, moving to the big city and following her dream.” says Nick Arrojo.  Kristie says the experience has been life changing so far.
