One of the biggest inspirations in my life is my mother. When I was trying to figure out a career for myself my mom mentioned cosmetology and I became very interested. Once I started my journey at Arthur's I realized very quickly that I was addicted to making people feel good about themselves. Their smiles and glow they had after I had finished my service was so uplifting to me. I've been a stylist for almost 10 years now and I have so many great stories that have touched my heart throughout the years. I specialize in color. I have won several awards when working for a corporate salon. I’m 2017, I won #1 in Oklahoma for the Matrix watercolor contest. In 2018, I won the balayage contest. When I begin a color I look at the hair and see a new canvas each time. I love how creative it makes me feel. I also have 3 boys so I enjoy doing kids cuts and I have two special needs kids myself so I work extra hard making all kids with any disabilities comfortable when I'm doing their hair.

I'm available at the W salon in Sallisaw, Ok.

Happy ”International Women’s Day” Today we, the staff at Arthur’s Beauty College, want to recognize our boss- Mrs. Chris Strawn! The woman behind the scenes who makes things happen, who encourages us and motivates us on a daily basis. Mrs. Chris, we adore you, love you and we are honored to work for you and beside you.

Mrs. Chris Strawn:

I started beauty school July 30, 1971. I went everyday through the summers, half a day and on Saturdays through the school year. I graduated in the beginning of 1973 a little before I graduated from high school. I worked in a salon in NLR called ’Nova’s then ‘Lucille’s’ in Jacksonville and a little salon in Cabot. In 1976 I turned 21, I started back to school in Jacksonville for my Instructor training. I began working for my parents, Arthur and Virginia Doyle at the Jacksonville school in 1976. My first business was the ‘Little Rock Air Force Base Beauty Salon.’ I bought the ‘Total Person Salon’ in Jacksonville about 1978.
July 1, 1999 I bought the Jacksonville beauty college from my father, Arthur Doyle. I opened the Pine Bluff campus in 2003. I purchased the Conway campus in 2004. I purchased the Fort Smith campus in 2005. Then I purchased the Jonesboro Campus in 2013. I was elected as an Academic Commissioner at large for the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences in 2011 and re-elected in 2014. I also served on the Executive Committee as Secretary for and Second Vice Chair for several years.

🖤 Bethel Baugus, Alumni 🖤

I graduated from Arthur’s on April 3, 2015. It took me about 2 years to finish, but the goal was set and achieved. I moved to Arkansas from Illinois and started school right away to pursue a career I didn’t know I would love so much. I do not do hair. However, I have mastered the art of removing it! Eyebrows, eyelash extensions and nails are my thing. I also have big future plans in the making for other routes of success in this industry. I have now moved back to Illinois, excelled in my career and live for making others feel and look beautiful.

Student of the Month: Amber Johnston⭐️

Feeling unsatisfied after working in a factory for many years, Amber knew that God had a bigger plan for her, and took a chance on pursuing a career that would bring her happiness: cosmetology. She has shown stellar performance and has made her education her priority. After graduation, she plans on finding a company within the beauty industry that will allow her to follow her dreams. Outside of school, her favorite thing to do is take trips with her boyfriend and her family.

Congrats to this amazing student! ❤️🎉

We had a great day doing updos with CHI today! 👱🏽‍♀️👱🏻‍♀️

Meet Reagan Elise Moses ♥️♥️

“My name is Reagan Moses. I have been a hair stylist for 7 years now! I always knew I wanted to find a career that I could express my creativity and help others. When I thought of cosmetology it seemed like the perfect choice! And boy was it! I chose Arthur’s Beauty College for my education. When I started I was a bit nervous how I would fit in this trade, but through my time at Arthur’s I realized more and more how perfect cosmetology was for me! Even from the first day learning how to give a shampoo! My time at ABC was such a great experience, from the education part to learning hands on, the friends you make and the laughs you share through it all. I graduated in 2011, got my license and started the career I fell in love with. I have worked for a Regis salon, and an awesome cozy shop called La Chaz Salon in my time of being in Fort Smith. Now I have relocated to Little Rock and I’m working for Dillard’s Aveda Salon! I have had such amazing experience since starting my cosmetology journey! I have had the best clients a girl could ask for. And I’m so excited to see what the future of this career brings me!”

Meet Cortney James ♥️♥️

“My name is Cortney James, I’m 23 years old! When I was little I always kinda knew i would end up in a salon. My mom did hair for 30 years and I was pretty much raised in a salon. When I was in high school I tried talking myself out of it, well little did I know it was where my heart belonged. I decided to do my education at Arthur’s Beauty College in Fort Smith. I graduated in December of 2015. After I graduated I decided to work at Supercuts in Fort Smith. I worked there for almost 2 years. I always told myself i wouldn’t work at a place like that but it was definitely a good decision. I learned so much as a stylist, a lot of what NOT to do but as a hairstylist that’s how you become good at what you do and learn from your mistakes! I now work at SALON ELEMENTS in Fort Smith and I LOVE it. I work under Marcie Comstock and she is the absolute best teacher, I have learned so much more and she is always finding ways to continue our education! WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT IF YOU WANT TO SUCCEED AS A HAIRSTYLIST!! I now specialize in dimensional coloring/ balayage, haircuts, blowouts, EHP Extensions, NBR hair extensions and Keratin treatments! I love my job and I love what I do! I Love making people feel beautiful and confident when they leave my chair! And I love making their hair FEEL and look better than what they came in with it. It’s such an accomplishing feeling!”

⭐️Meet Our Alumni: Miranda Marie Todd⭐️

“I started cosmetology school when I was 26. I was a single mom of two who was a high school drop out. I always knew beauty was a passion of mine I just didn’t know how to go about making it a career instead of a hobby. I decided to bite the bullet and just do it. So I quit my full time job at a doctors office and signed up for school. I worked two jobs, raised my kids and went to school. It took me a little longer than most to get it done but I did it and to me that’s all that matters. I started to work in a small shop with two other girls still maintaining a second job where eventually I became co-owner. After a few years of working two jobs I was able to completely focus my time on the salon. A little over a year ago I made the rough decision to start my own salon! It was the scariest decision of my life but it’s one I will never regret. Now I have 4 employees and a thriving business with endless possibilities!“

Meet Morgan Breanna Hudson!!
