Spring Cosmetology Hair Show a Big Success

Guests, family and friends got to check out the hottest trends in hair and make-up at Stanly Community College (SCC) last Wednesday evening at the Spring Hair Show. Cosmetology Instructors Linda Hatley, Kimberly Herrin, David Smith, Gena Trogdon, and part-time Instructors Donice Loflin and Tammy Shepherd organized over 50 Cosmetology students to produce a show that featured hair and make-up styles ranging from modern to vintage that included down styles, braids, pretty ponytails and more. The models fluctuated in ages, anywhere from four to sixty-four years old. Models revealed prom attire in silks, sequins and lace, while others wore wedding dresses and vintage attire.

The Cosmetology instructors agreed the students did a terrific job in organizing and preparing their models’ hairstyles and make-up, and that it was a great learning experience for the students to engage in group activities and collaborate with their classmates. Students were able to utilize their skills learned in the classroom at the show and they had a lot of fun doing it.

Nearly 200 people attended the show that was held in the Dennis Auditorium on the Albemarle campus. Robin McCree, Executive Vice President of Educational Services gave opening remarks, and was one of the models—“mother of the bride.” Michael Sperling, Associate Dean of Business & Career Technology introduced each cosmetology student, along with his or her model(s). Ms. Trogdon and Mr. Smith concluded the show with a pinning of the graduates.

In the fall of 2014, SCC partnered with Stanly County Schools and West Stanly High School to teach a Cosmetology Career and College Promise (CCP) program. Students take clients from the general public just like the Cosmetology Department at Burleson Square. The high school students perform all the same services offered at the Albemarle location; haircuts, perms, colors, highlights/low-lights, manicures, pedicures, etc.
