I didn’t know what I wanted to do in high school. I had no idea that I would end up going to beauty school, but I knew that I was really passionate about beauty and the ability to change your appearance.
How did you end up at Phagans?
I was always on the web and looking at beautiful people. This made me realize that so many of them were hairdressers. I remember the exact moment at the gym and I was looking on the web and realized this was what I was passionate about. When I was young, I loved being in my mom’s makeup and doing her hair and it took me a while to connect all …

Let’s face it. Waxing, especially the first time, can be a little frightening.
The truth is that in addition to the obvious result of smooth sexy skin all summer long, waxing has other benefits. Hair in the armpits and bikini region trap natural oils that can produce unwanted odor, especially during the warmer summer months. Waxing eliminates the hair and can therefore reduce odor. Also, regular waxing changes the texture of hair and thins the follicle, making future waxing less painful.
Once you’ve wrapped your head around the process of having your hair removed from the root using hot wax, popsicle sticks, and cloth strips, the next steps to smooth summer beauty are as easy as 1-2-3. Read on for tips …

Portland photographer Lavenda Memory and award-winning make-up artist and Phagans alum M’chel Bauxal led a team of students during two days of photography and videography for the April shoot, titled ETHOS.
