Angela Christine Stevens-a beauty expert and reality TV star of WeTV's "L.A. HAIR," returned to her native city of Chicago to make a debut at her cosmetology alma mater, Pivot Point Academy.
Stevens, who was the keynote speaker at the graduation, spoke about how her passion for beauty continues to elevate her career and how the topnotch skills she learned at Pivot Point helped her navigate the challenges of establishing a career in the highly competitive Los Angeles beauty market.
After learning her artistic craft at Pivot Point, Stevens jetted off to Los Angeles. She started working with renowned talent Kim Kimble of the Kimble Hair Studio and now maintains the manes of many Hollywood luminaries, including Eve, Keke Palmer, Garcelle Beauvais, Tia Mowry and beyond.
"Pivot Point is proud of all our talented alumni," says Pivot Point President Melanie Kopeikin. "Even after students graduate from Pivot Point, our partnership with them continues. We believe education is a lifelong process and we strive to support our alumni throughout their careers."
"People think of the beauty industry as being something fun to do, but when you want to be successful, you also have to know about the business side of the career and that takes a good solid foundation and skills," concludes Stevens.
