Alumni Share Their TONI&GUY Experience

In the TONI&GUY family, we love celebrating each other’s victories, successes and exciting milestones. One of our favorite milestones to raise a toast to is witnessing our TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy students become alumni and begin their careers as talented, well-trained hairdressers. We especially love when those alumni return to the place where it all began, even just to say hello.


Last month, a few recent Costa Mesa TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy graduates stopped by the academy to say “hi” and show some love to their alma mater. These surprise visitors included Cheyenne Pierce (center), Maryam Shamsi (right) who both graduated this past July and Brooke Conner (left) who graduated in August.

During their visit to the academy, these alums had nothing but great things to say about their experience and the education they received from TONI&GUY.


“I’m very thankful to have attended TONI&GUY for cosmetology school. There were many other options out here in Southern California and TONI&GUY gave me the best vibes as far as positivity and friendliness,” said Cheyenne. “I felt so welcomed by my first interactions here.”


During her program, Cheyenne created some truly noteworthy looks including beautiful vivids, edgy asymmetrical cuts and tons of irresistible texture. She was also awarded a Certificate of Achievement for most return requests of the month during her last month at the academy.

Brooke created some stunning dimensional blondes along with subtle vivids while at the academy. She also created some killer updos and trendy cuts.

Now that they have entered the professional world, they are seeing everything they learned during their cosmetology come to life. Fortunately, as we learned from these talented young ladies, their education at the academy has prepared them for the challenges they have already faced and are sure to experience throughout their career.


“I feel I have a very good foundation to build off of thanks to my education at TONI&GUY,” Cheyenne added.


Aside from the technical skills that they learned from their cosmetology education, they also mentioned how the TONI&GUY hairdressing program has affected them on a more personal level.


“Going through the TONI&GUY hairdressing program has been such a fulfilling experience. I learned much more than just hair, I learned about myself, my limits and my self-discipline,” explained Brooke. “I’m so grateful for who I have become and where I’m prepared to be because of this academy.”


We wish these graduates and all of our alumni the best of luck and much success in their careers. We are honored to welcome them back for a visit any time! It makes our TONI&GUY family proud to see our own grow and prosper in their passions and know that they have left our academy with a breadth of knowledge and abilities!
