Student Spotlight: Sharde-Marie Clark

Sharde-Marie Clark

Why did you enroll in beauty school?

At 19 I watched “Chicago” the musical for the first time on stage, and decided that was what I wanted to do, work on Broadway. The idea of my work being shown on stage for the world to see was my ideal choice of career. I’m a “jack of all trades”, have my degree in English and journalism, as I thought at one point I wanted to be a history teacher! I have done hair and makeup for drag queens and community outreach programs like Nightscare Productions where we raise money and have food drives for the local community.

Why did you choose Phagans?

It was the nicest school and they actually answered my inquiry! I moved …

Finally! The days are growing longer and longer, the sun is shining, and temperatures are creeping up above 70. All across Portland and Vancouver, Northwesterners are digging out our shorts from the dresser and dragging sundresses from the back of the closet. These light and airy looks are great for summertime, but for many people hairy legs could be ruining your warm-weather look.

What to do about your hairy stems? There are lots of options if you choose not to go au natural. Shaving, depilatories, and laser treatments will all remove hair effectively, but waxing offers the longest-lasting, most affordable treatment around. Here are a few reasons why we think waxing is the way to go:

Safe: Think about the last time you shaved your …
