Program helps aspiring beauticians obtain certification, improve skills

For students who are looking to pursue an education and career in the hairstyling industry, the Cosmetology program at South Plains College program has openings for the summer III semester.

Orientation for the program will be held on April 13. Classes will begin on May 14 and end Aug. 2.

Students will learn how to perform haircuts, hair color, high-lights, low-lights, perms, chemical relaxers, wet sets, curling-iron sets, manicures, pedicures and eye-brow waxing.

Interested students should first complete an application for admission. Students also must take the Cosmetology Entrance Examination, which can be found on the SPC website. After finishing the exam, students should come to the Cosmetology facility at Gentry Square in Levelland to fill out an application to the program. That will be followed by an interview with a member of the Cosmetology faculty.

During the program, students work in a full-service salon that is open to the public. Students are supervised by an SPC faculty member.
