Students in the Cosmetology program at Stanly Community College (SCC) have completed their training and 1,500 contact hours. They are now able to take the State Board of Cosmetic Arts examination and upon successfully passing will become licensed cosmetologists in the state of North Carolina. Once licensed, students will be able to pursue employment opportunities in beauty salons and other related businesses.
This was the first class of students to complete their training at the newly constructed Morton-Moffitt Cosmetology Center located on the Albemarle campus. Coursework for this program includes instruction in all phases of professional imaging, hair design, chemical processes, skin care, nail care, multicultural practices, business/computer principles, product knowledge, and other selected topics.
High school students can also enroll in Cosmetology classes through the Career and College Promise pathway. These classes are offered at West Stanly High School and are tuition-free.
The Morton-Moffitt Cosmetology Center offers affordable salon services to the general public. All services are performed by students and supervised by instructors. For a complete list of services and prices, call 704-982-3304.
