Rosiry Mercedes, Ocala, Fla.

After eight years working as a salon receptionist, Rosiry’s “aha moment” came when she attended the Premiere show in Orlando. After graduating beauty school and earning her license six months ago, Rosiry says she is alive with the “fire and desire” that comes with working behind the chair at Urban Hair Studio. “This scholarship is an amazing jumpstart for me as a new artist and I vow to stay humble and coachable as I help guests see how fabulous and fearless they can be with a new haircut,” says Rosiry.
