Star Student – Samantha Kulb

What is your educational background? I graduated from Delsea Regional High School in Franklinville, New Jersey in 2016. I enrolled in beauty school at the beginning of 2017. Why did you choose cosmetology as a career? I realized I loved cosmetology when I bleached and cut my sister’s hair at 15 years old! I chose PB Beauty School to do my training to become a professional because I always heard good things about the school. What is your beauty weapon of choice and why? Definitely my blow dryer because my blow outs last for days! Where do you see yourself in this industry in the future? I hope I am successful with a full book of clients in a salon. I also...

Making a Difference

Having been in Cosmetology Education on and off for the last 15+ years, one of the things all of my former students will say I always stressed to them was how to make money in this industry.  I preached and tried to drive in their heads that it was all about the green and how to work smart to make the most money possible.  However, on occasion situations arise where it is entirely the opposite and making money is not even a consideration.  Allow me to explain.   It is very common for people to look down on Hairstylists with an attitude that they “just do hair”.  It is also a mind-trap that some students and even experienced stylists fall into, not realizing how much...

A Sneak Peak at Working in the Beauty Business!

Working in the educational part of the beauty industry is rewarding in more than one way. I have a front row seat to the latest trends in hair, makeup, nails, skin, and even barbering! I’m able to gain experience in business operations by working closely with our directors. One of my favorite duties is attending high school career fairs as a representative of the school. Upon attending a career fair, I look for prospective students who have a passion for all things beauty and want to build a successful career in this industry. Our educators and administrative staff are close knit yet come from all walks of life to deliver the most unique education for our students. I’ve come to...

Good Luck Grads!

Graduation is just around the corner, and as a PB graduate (class of ’08!) I always take a moment at this time of year to reflect on my experience at PB and what the road to becoming a cosmetologist meant to me. Completing the cosmetology program represented the achievement of a major life goal, and knowing I’d be able to pursue a career I had a passion for was truly exciting. Still, the journey definitely came with a few bumps in the road. Logging 1200 hours of everything from chemistry to anatomy, in addition to all the hands-on cutting and styling, was anything but easy. As your time here comes to an end, it is so important to acknowledge all of your hard work and everything it...

Ultimate Haircut Guide

In an ideal world, you could bring a photo of David Beckham into your barber, and he can transform your hair to match the legendary footballer. The reason this won’t work, aside from the obvious, is the fact that your face shape dictates what haircut is best for you. You may have a heart shaped face, and a hairstyle rocked by Ryan Gosling may be more your speed. Regardless of your face shape, we’ve got the guide to help you find your ideal hairstyle. Once you identify your face shape, say ‘diamond’, your job is to Google ‘celebrity diamond shaped face’, and then tell your barber to mimic that star’s...

Star Student, Rayven Mosley

Rayven is 23 years old and enrolled in the part-time Cosmetology Program with Mr. Stephen Scull as her instructor. Your educational background? I graduated from Riverside High School in New Jersey. I began my Cosmetology training at PB in September 2016.   Why did you choose cosmetology as a career? I have always loved doing hair since I was supper little! I always practiced on my dolls and on my aunt’s old mannequin heads.   What is your beauty weapon of choice and why? My beauty weapon of choice would be a curling iron because I love curling and being able to do things with the curls.   Where do you see yourself in this industry in five years?...

Mutter Museum Field Trip

PB’s junior cosmetology students learn about some really tough academic subjects. Anatomy and physiology is one of the most difficult of the theory subjects. To help students have a better understanding, teachers and students take field trips to Philadelphia to visit the Mutter Museum. The Mutter Museum is a medical museum that contains a collection of medical oddities, anatomical and pathological specimens, wax models and antique medical equipment.  Here the students get real life visuals of what they are studying in their textbooks. The Mutter Museum is found on 22nd street between Chestnut and Market Streets. It houses some amazing discoveries.  Without giving away too many of the...
