SCC Announces Cosmetology Graduates (05/17/2016)

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.

Cosmetology coursework 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. They learn all the same concepts and offer a variety of services to the public at very reasonable prices. All work is performed by students under the supervision of instructors. These services will soon be available at the newly constructed Morton-Moffit Cosmetology Center located on the Albemarle campus. Watch for Grand Opening announcements this summer!

Fall Cosmetology classes start August 15. For more information about the SCC Cosmetology programs, call David Smith at (704) 991-0376 or visit
