Getting to know Senior Julianna Owens

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Senior student Julianna Owens a few days before she graduated to recap her time here and to talk about her plans for the future.
PB: What made you decide to come to PB Cosmetology School?
Juls: A warm and friendly atmosphere drew me in. It is like one big family. I could tell right off the bat that the staff really cares a lot about each and every student. I also loved the new state of the art salon!
PB: What were you doing prior to enrolling at PB Cosmetology School?
Juls: Before enrolling at PB, I was going to college for business. I always had a knack for makeup and hair. I knew I always wanted to come to beauty school so it was something I just had to do to feed that need. It was the best decision I ever made.
PB: Upon graduating what do you plan to do with your license?
Juls: I plan to mix my cosmetology license with my business degree. I would like to start out doing beauty sales or marketing. My ultimate goal is to be the Marketing Director for L'Oreal in NY.
PB: What has been the highlight of your time here at PB?
Juls: All the people I've met on this journey. So many people who have been there to help me. My teacher Ms. Shana was so awesome. She taught me a lot about not only beauty but life in general. Ms. Jill taught me so much about makeup and although she wasn't my teacher she was always there to lend a helping hand. Colleen Hogan, the School Director has been so motivating to me and so many others. Always willing to stop whatever she was doing to talk and guide me through anything I brought to her. All the staff were a big help as well. Always willing to go the extra mile to help and encourage myself as well as my classmates.
Ms. Shana and Julianna
PB: Aside from the Cosmetology skills you learned what would you say is the best thing you learned?
Juls: The power of positive thinking and how to apply it to every aspect of your life!!

Want to Detoxify and Shed Inches?A Contour Wrap is for YOU!

Contour Body Wrap


In just two hours, PB's Contour Body Wrap reduces body measurements and firms soft tissue. We use the ancient arts of masking and wrapping to help change the shape you’re in. Our wrapping techniques help compress fatty tissue and helps tone underlying muscle. We start with a sea clay masque application which draws out toxins, tightening and smoothing the skin. Then we use elastic wraps which are saturated in a blend of detox herbs to contour the body. Wraps offer a quick way to firm the upper arms, breasts, belly, hips, buttocks, and thighs, which often appear heavy or bloated due to water and waste retention.

How Contour Body Wraps Work

Contour Wraps are a safe and effective process that pulls toxins from the skin. Allowing the body’s natural elastin to firm up and help hold the new contours shaped by the elastic wraps. When wrapped tightly, the body sweats, which in turn causes the skin to lie flatter against the underlying muscle.

Toxic accumulation is mainly due the one’s lifestyle and the modern problems of excessive stress, smoking, illness, improper diet and lack of exercise. Toxins are stored in the fluids between fat cells when the skin becomes overloaded.

What to Expect

First we will bring you back to our treatment room where you will be able to change. While most clients prefer to bring a bathing suit, we do provide disposable undergarments for you. Next we will take your measurements so you can see the results of before and after. We then start our application of sea clay masque followed by our herbal elastic wraps. You will then rest in our heated facial bed for one hour. It’s a very relaxing procedure and you will truly enjoy some downtime as you lose inches!
After the hour is complete, we begin the removal of the elastic wraps and the sea clay masque using hot towels. Finally you will be re-measured and allowed to change. 

You will lose inches, but you will also lose a lot more – toxins and waste materials trapped in our fat cells. Recently one of our educators was wrapped and lost 15 inches overall. Because of the increased circulation and the release of toxins, the results will also be improved health.

PB Beauty School offers Contour Wraps for $45. Please contact the student spa to set up you appointment.
