Michelle Duncan

Lead Educator, Licensed Cosmetology Educator – Iowa

I’m a very proud PCI Academy graduate, and even more proud to be lead educator and blue team coach at our Ames campus. I also have the privilege of working with our Plymouth campus education team. As a lifelong learner I’ve had the opportunity to become Redken Color Certified and Redken Design Certified. I have also traveled the country learning the latest trends and techniques to bring back to our students.

I have spent the last 12 years teaching all aspects of cosmetology, esthetics, and nails.  I currently work with the students as they begin seeing guests in the salon area classroom, and as they are wrapping up their training making sure their skills, both technical and communication, are salon ready.

I love everything about my career, but one of my favorite parts of teaching is helping students realize their vision for the future and achieving it. We give our students the tools (technical, communication, etc.) so that they can go farther in their professional and personal lives than they ever dreamed possible.  My other favorite part of teaching is watching the ‘light bulb’ moments happen.
The cosmetology industry is a wonderful career choice, and we would love to help you achieve your dreams!
