Barja Carrigan

Our Admissions officer, Barja, first encountered the beauty industry when she was a child, growing up in Europe. She would go to the salon with her mother and she loved the atmosphere. She has worked in salons for many years and decided to get into education in order to give something back to the industry. She has worked in many areas of the beauty industry, helping to write curricula, doing photo shoots and writing for different publications. She loves the team that she works with now and is incredibly happy to be a part of the process of changing the lives of our students.
