View Full Version : She finished!!

June 4th, 2014, 07:59 AM
After almost 2 years DD finished her cosmetology hours!! My mom and I went to her school on her last day and took her to lunch and the girls at her school got her an ice cream cake. I'm so proud of her. It was so nice to see her full of smiles.

Then last night she called her dad. According to her, not once did he say he was proud of her. She was so upset. Maybe one day he will let her forget her past. I'll just pray for that and that one day they will have a decent relationship. What a jerk

Sharon - never fear, this experience will strengthen your DD. Tell her we're all so very proud of her for her perseverance and a great big CONGRATULATIONS for both of you and what you have endured together.

Tell her congrats! That's a lot of hard work and long hours! I have had a few relatives go through it. I have heard horror stories about some of the customers that go through for them to practice on. Some of them give the students a really hard time.

Did she and the other students practice on each other? Different hair color every day? Multiple colors?

Congrats to your DD for this accomplishment, it is certainly something to be proud of.

Congratulations! So sad that her dad is so unsupportive. We can't give up on them. I think parents need to encourage their children whenever they possibly can. After all, where else can they turn for the support they need? Growing up is so difficult and often. It's a parents job to encourage them. Not to make them feel bad about themselves. That doesn't solve anything. It usually makes it worse.

Thanks everyone.

@Ryan...LOL! She can give a mean scalp massage!!

While attending she would tell me stories of some of her crabby people that sat in her chair, but then there are clients that I'm sure she will miss. I'm just so proud that she stuck with it even though she had many, many struggles.

Well her dad IS a jerk! I WILL be proud of her for him!! WTG DOLLY!!! Way to kick butt! CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ROCK!!

There! THAT's what he should have said.

Congratulations to you as a mom and to her for graduating.

Karma will get Jerkface.

Congrats to her! I went to a hair styling school to get my hair permed. My hair was down to my waist and it took four girls to do it. They were so fun.

What are her plans?

Congratulations to both of you. My GD is also in cosmetology school. It's a lot of work and I know that you're proud of her!

Now when are you going to get a purple strip in your hair? :D

Congratulations to both of you, my daughter had some rocky teenage years, she graduated cosmetology school in 2001 and has now owned her own business for over 5 years. Lots of hard work but so proud of her. Trish

Congrats to both of you. You for being her wonderful mom, and stand up parent....and her for finishing her schooling, and getting her life on track. That is not always an easy thing to do.

Congratulations! That is wonderful

Congratulations to your daughter! That is a lot of hard work and I'm proud of her for sticking it out.

Congratulations to your DD and to you too.

No purple stripe for me Sharyn. My hair is just now looking healthy again after all the coloring and highlights from when she first started school.

Lori: she has some options but she's not sure yet which one to go with. She has to take her state board test and the earliest she can do that is July 7. A local shop contacted her a few days ago to see if she would like to assist with a wedding party this Saturday she also has a chair open. The owner has asked if she would be interested but DD is not sure she would be comfortable there.

We shall see where the wind blows my beautiful girl.
