    EQ School of Hair Design students enthusiastically participate in the Des Moines Competition every year. It gives our students a chance to show case their creativity within the realms of hairstyling, makeup, nails and clothing design.
    The competition is open to all Cosmetology schools in the state of Iowa and we LOVE to show off our student stylists! This event is attended by several thousand stylists and owners from the state of Iowa and is a good way for our students to network with potential employers.
    Students are informed about 2 months in advance of the competition category and must create a look falling within competition guidelines. The activities leading up to this in the school include school competitions and special classes presented by seasoned veterans in the industry to show our students how to compete to the best of their ability.
    At EQ School of Hair Design we have several teams participate every year and have placed in the top three on more than one occasion. This is excellent experience for those students wishing to pursue platform or session styling.
    The students learn the importance of team work and creativity and have a great time in the process!!

    Annual Student Outing

Students enjoy a catered lunch, and an afternoon of various games and swimming. The EQ School of Hair Design staff, in keeping with tradition is unbeaten in challenging the students in a "friendly" game of Volleyball. It is always a fun day.

    CHART YOUR COURSE

    Annually EQ School of Hair Design students attend "Chart Your Course" at the school. This gives students the opportunity to explore career choices other than being a salon designer that services clients in a salon. Each student is able to speak first hand with a platform artist, makeup artist, educator, funeral home director, designer, product distributor owner. It is a great experience for all stuents and gives another look at the many opportunities a cosmetology license can provide.
