“Cosmetology has always been a huge passion of mine, ever since I was a little girl. My dream is finally my reality! I love making people feel great about themselves, whether with a little refreshing trim, a whole new hairstyle, or a fun new set of nails. The most rewarding part of being a stylist is knowing my clients are satisfied with my work and want to keep coming back because I’ve made them feel special.”

Madeline Parker

Madeline Parker

Junior Stylist

“I’m Madeline Parker and I recently graduated from Watkins Glen High School and went to BOCES Bush Campus for Cosmetology. I was student of the month in February and was part of NTHS. I have wanted to do something in cosmetology for a very long time. I loved to do makeup but knew there was more I could do in this industry. I went to Cosmetology school and realized I loved doing hair as well! My favorite part is when a client is all done and seeing how happy they are with their hair! I like that being a hairstylist is another form of being an artist and I love using my creative skills. I’m so excited to join the world of cosmetology and hope I can make people smile for a long time.” Madeline is also the recipient of the Sincerity Award in cosmetology and she was in the TOP 8 of STUDENT OF THE YEAR, National Technical Honor Society for all of BOCES.

ABOUT OUR SALON

I opened Transformations Hair and Body 20 years ago with a goal to serve our guests by creating a sublime experience that would exceed their expectations and to create a team that shared my dream. I believe I’ve achieved that goal. I am in awe everyday when I see my team creating and going beyond our guest’s expectation of their vision of how they wanted to look and feel. When I asked each of my team why they wanted to be in this profession, each of them said because they wanted to make people feel and look great!
