Students in the Cosmetology program at Stanly Community College (SCC) recently 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 a licensed cosmetologist 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 are available at the Cosmetology department located in the Burleson Square Shopping Center and at West Stanly High School. For appointments at West Stanly call (704) 485-2793, and for Burleson Square, call (704) 982-3304.
Spring Cosmetology classes start in January. For more information about the SCC Cosmetology programs, call David Smith at (704) 991-0376.
