About Our Owner and Instructor

Cheri Kornaker - Cosmetology Schools in Jacksonville, NC
My name is Cheri L. Kornaker. I have been married to Richard P. Kornaker for 28 years and still counting. I have three daughters: Beth Coleman, Crystal Kornaker, and Brittany Kornaker and I also have six beautiful grandbabies and love every minute about being a Nonnie. My family is my pride and joy. I relocated to North Carolina 20 years ago from New York State. I have been doing hair for 24 years and an instructor for six years. It has always been my dream to one day open up a Cosmetology School so that others can enjoy the Cosmetology field as much as I do. I am always willing to give a hand wherever is needed. The door is always open if you need to talk to me. Hair is my passion; I love making people feel good about themselves.
I am very outgoing and will dance in the middle of the store. I am dedicated to watching my students grow and achieve their goals. Don't ever hesitate to knock on my door and talk.
Cheri. L Kornaker

Our Instructors

My name is James Parker and I began my career 25 years ago working as a licensed cosmetologist, salon owner and instructor. I have worked with many different hair textures, I attend hair seminars, hair shows, and hair competitions. I also spend time in continuing education classes to advance my career.

I attended James Sprunt Community obtaining my Instructor license. For 5 years I have utilized my Instructor's license teaching students at Miller-Motte. I am devoted to my profession and love encouraging students. My goal as an Instructor is to teach, motivate, and prepare students to focus on a bright future; a future in which the student may always find employment.

Michell Kisler - Beauty School Instructor in Jacksonville, NC
My name is Michell Kisler. I graduated from cosmetology school over 10 years ago, upon receiving my license I decided to return and get my license in cosmetology instruction. Once I completed this part of my schooling I began working in the field of cosmetology. In those 10 years I have worked for small businesses, companies and for myself. I enjoy what I do for a living whether it is teaching or actually cutting, coloring, perming and everything else that goes along with cosmetology. As for my personal life, I am not only a cosmetologist, I am a wife, mother of 4 beautiful girls, and a competition cheerleading coach (like I said love teaching). I am always busy, but my passion always leads me back to cosmetology. So, as I like to say, I Run with Scissors.
