New York native Mariah Nichols always knew she wanted to do hair.
“I was experimenting all the time with my hair, different colors and styles. I researched schools on line and I loved the location of Empire Beauty School in Manhattan.”
“To come here it’s different from other parts of NY. Out here it’s where everything is at. The lights, the action. It’s inspirational. Even to be inspired to afford half the things you see on 34th street.”
But it wasn’t just the location that sold Mariah on Empire. “The hands-on curriculum is what excited me about the program. Getting to learn by doing was important to me.”
Mariah says her educators at Empire were constantly pushing her to do her best.
