Emily Dimant, a 2014 Eastern Center for Arts and Technology (EASTERN) Cosmetology and Lower Moreland graduate, is currently in her second semester at University of the Arts in Philadelphia majoring in Illustration. Emily also owns and operates her own freelance make-up artistry business, specializing in bridal, special event and fashion makeup. Samples of Emily’s work can be seen on her Facebook fan page at www.facebook.com/makeupbyemilydimant.
When Emily was in 8th grade, she learned about the Cosmetology program at EASTERN. She patiently waited three years before she could enroll as a junior in high school. She knew that nails, makeup, and hair styling were the main focus of the Cosmetology program at EASTERN, and she had always had a love for the industry.
Emily also had a natural talent for drawing and painting. At University of the Arts, she is now learning how to digitally create artwork using Photoshop, Illustrator and Corel Painter. With her successful makeup business on the side, she is able to merge two loves – art and makeup.
“Without the help of my EASTERN Cosmetology Instructors, Ms. Mednick and Ms. Leyden, I would not have learned the skills I use today on my clients,” said Emily. “I am very grateful for the opportunity that EASTERN gave me to be able to attend Cosmetology school for free, be able to obtain my Cosmetology license before starting college.”
EASTERN’s Cosmetology program will provide the skills necessary to begin a career in the
cosmetology field. In Pennsylvania, as well as other states, cosmetologists and nail technicians must be licensed to practice in the field.
