Christmas at CSA.


This is the layers of the skin hands on project out students worked on.

This month we really celebrated dressing up! The whole month of October was Halloween for us.   And then we had to finish it off with a mummy wrap contest.

Once again we brought our fierce game to Chicago. Check us out at Fashion Bar doing hair and makeup for the models.

Thanks again to Slim the Barber for being a constant supporter of ours he is here once a month, at least, teaching us how to be amazing barbers.  Greg who also works with Slim was kind enough to teach us how to blow dry men's hair.

We are so fortunate to have guest speakers from every aspect of the industry!

"Check out our students work. I am proud to say we have the most talented students in the industry. " Jessica Jennings
