Angela Christine Stevens, beauty expert and star of WeTV’s reality show, L.A. Hair, returned to her native Chicago to address graduating students at her alma mater Pivot Point Academy in Evanston, Illinois.
Stevens was the keynote speaker for Pivot Point’s 2013 graduation and she spoke about her passion for all things beauty and how her Pivot Point cosmetology education prepared her for establishing a career in the competitive beauty environment of Los Angeles.
Stevens learned her craft at Pivot Point before moving to Los Angeles where she joined Kim Kimble at the Kimble Hair Studio where she has a loyal celebrity clientele including Eve, KeKe Palmer, Tia Mowry and others.
“Pivot Point is proud of all its talented alumni,” says President Melanie Kopeikin. “Even after students graduate from Pivot Point, our partnership with them continues. We believe education is a lifelong process and we strive to support our alumni throughout their careers.”
Stevens said, “I learned so much from my strong family and my time at Pivot Point. People think of the beauty industry as being something fun to do, but when you want to be successful, you also have to know about the business side of a beauty career and that takes a good solid foundation and skills.”
