As an essential element of the learning experience, cosmetology students at SCC are offering haircuts, manicures and nail tech services this spring. Students provide haircuts on a first-come, first-served basis from 8 until 11 a.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays. Cost is $12 for women and $8 for men.
Shampoo and style costs $10, and other services are offered at discounted rates. There is limited availability in the afternoons by appointment only.
Call Randy McCall, SCC’s cosmetology program coordinator, at 339-4238 to reserve a time slot. Students must complete a mandated number of live model performances, so community clients are vital to their success.
