New Cosmetology School Artistic Director at ARROJO
ARROJO Master Stylist Amanda Jenkins has been named to the newly created position of Cosmetology School Artistic Director for Nick Arrojoʼs eponymous brand.
“I feel inspired to be joining an award-winning beauty school,” says Jenkins. “My role is to strengthen the standards at ARROJO Cosmetology. We want to upgrade the cosmetology experience for faculty, students, and clients. Iʼve taught occasionally in the school since it opened. Nick (Arrojo) has already raised the bar at the cosmetology level but thereʼs more we can do to elevate how we teach, to bolster the client experience and to get graduates ready to succeed on the salon floor hotbed.”
Two-time winner of the Toni & Guy Editorial Award, Jenkins joined ARROJO as a Master Stylist in 2004.
“Amanda is a pillar of the brand and an exceptionally inspiring educator and person,” says Arrojo. “With the school expanding into TriBeCa, I wanted to ensure we could maintain consistency across both locations while continuing to raise the level of foundational hairdressing education. Going to cosmetology school should not be something you do to get a license, it should be an inspiring, defining moment in your career direction.”
