Marca College Instructor Highlight: Barbara
At Marca College, we are family. Our Instructors create an environment for our students that helps them build the necessary technical, and soft skills, to become successful once they step into the real world. This is why we are so proud to feature our reMARCAble Instructor Barbara Pollington.
Barbara grew up being the youngest of four sisters and was always their mannequin. She remembers that they would practice all types of hairstyles on her, from rag rollers to Toni perms. From this young age and being surrounded by family members with interest in hair and beauty, Barbara knew a career within the hair industry was for her.
Barbara has a vast amount of experience, including owning and operating her own salon for 12 years and being a Hair Styling Instructor for the last 7 years. In August, 2015, Barbara began working at Marca College.
Marca College’s passion to deliver quality education for students resonates with Barbara. She appreciates how thorough Pivot Point Education is. Founded in 1962, Pivot Point is an internationally recognized program offering fully-integrated content designed to help students within the beauty industry. Beyond this, Marca College provides students with events that allow them to network, community outreach, and L’Oreal Professionel representatives are often present and extremely hands-on with students.
When asking Barbara to provide her students with a piece of advice, she said, “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it.” Thank you for being a reMARCAble Instructor, Barbara!
