We love bringing guest instructors into The Salon Professional Academy! Especially those that we have known forever and admire so much! Quency Valencia is the owner of Salon Quency on U St in NW, D.C. He has been a stylist in the D.C. area for many years and has built quite the following in the community. From skin fades to working with Miss Universe contestants, Quency has done it all!
Clipper cuts are always a hot topic with our students and one of the areas of cosmetology that students find hard to master. “It can be scary trying to blend from skin to a 3 on a guest that seems picky about their hair!” shared Lavera, one of our cosmetology students.
Quency used two models to demonstrate various blending techniques and how to use different guards to create different looks that a client may ask for. Sidney was impressed with how easy he made it look! “It really clicked with me when he showed us how to hold the client’s head different ways so we could direct the hair and be more efficient!”
After Quency was done with his demonstration, the students were able to ask him about his career and how he got where he was. “I really loved his passion and how he kept driving home that one good guest experience can bring you so many more clients!” shared our cosmetology student Fanny. “He reminded us anything is possible as long as you put your mind to it!”
In the world of cosmetology anything really is possible! Thank you to Quency and Salon Quency for an amazing morning with our cosmetology students!
