Sonya Fitzgerald
Sonya FitzgeraldHair Design Institute Apopka, Orlando Area Graduate
I have always had a passion for hair & makeup. I started Hair Design Institute as a part time night student. I worked as a manager during the day and then attended school at night.

Since graduating Hair Design Institute in April 2013, I have opened my own business Brush Savvy specializing in onsite wedding hair & makeup. I also booth rent to provide In Salon cut and color services. I love being in charge of my success, schedule and income. I am excited to say that my clientele is growing week by week.

I love that my job requires creativity and allows me an opportunity to make people feel better about themselves. Renting my own chair and starting a business directly after graduating Hair Design Institute was a bold move. I know Hair Design Institute has been a contributor to my current success. Hair Design Institute armed me with great technical skill and the confidence to pursue my passion.

Rachel Robinson Jr. Educator at Hair Design Institute Apopka, Orlando Area
When I started my journey as a cosmetology student, I didn’t know what to expect. Although I faced a few road blocks, the supportive staff pushed me on my weakest days. I graduated and was offered a Jr. Educators position shortly after. Hair Design Institute didn’t just give me a career, they gave me a chance to be better. Without Hair Design Institute, I wouldn’t have had this life changing opportunity. I will always be a proud Hair Design Institute alumni, employee and licensed cosmetologist. Hair Design Institute is not just a school but a second home and second family that changes lives one hair at a time!
