SCC Cosmetology Students Apply Skills for Hair Show

Over 100 guests, family and friends attended the annual Cosmetology Hair Show at Stanly Community College (SCC) on Thursday, April 6, 2017. Cosmetology instructors organized nearly 40 students to create a show that featured the latest prom and special occasion hairstyles and make-up. Fifty-six models, ranging in ages four to seventy-four years old, wore prom attire and had their hair and make-up prepared by the cosmetology students.

SCC President Dr. John Enamait gave opening remarks and thanked everyone for coming to the show to support the students. Mr. Michael Sperling, Associate Dean, Business and Career Technology, introduced the students and models throughout the show. Cosmetology instructors David Smith, Heather Britt, Jamie Glover, Linda Hatley, Kimberly Herrin, Sabrina Shaw, Tammy Shepherd, and Gena Trogdon worked for weeks to guide, support, and prepare the students for their big event.

"The students did a terrific job preparing their models' hairstyles and make-up," noted Ms. Linda Hatley, adding, "Students were able to apply the skills they learned in the classroom and on the clinic floor at the hair show, and they had a lot of fun doing it!"

In the fall of 2014, SCC collaborated with Stanly County High Schools to teach a Cosmetology Career and College Promise (CCP) program at West Stanly High School. Since then, the program has grown to over a dozen high school students. Beginning fall 2017, the Morton-Moffitt Cosmetology Center will be the new home for the CCP program. This move is more centralized within Stanly County, allowing easier access for the high school students. Additionally, CCP will begin a Manicuring class in August.

Salon services at West Stanly High School are available to the public from 1:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday; 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday; and 12:15 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Fridays. Please help the students by calling to book an appointment at (704) 485-2793.

The new Morton-Moffitt Cosmetology Center, located on the Albemarle campus, is open to the public and offering salon services from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Tuesday through Friday.
