News Education SCC cosmetology students provide salon services this semester

In the background are Kaylee Marsengill (center) of Franklin and Shannon Marsden of Sylva.As an essential element of the learning experience, cosmetology students at Southwestern Community College are offering haircuts, manicures and nail tech services this spring.

Students provide haircuts on a first-come, firstserve basis from 8-11 a.m. on Tuesdays through Thursdays at SCC’s Jackson Campus. Pricing is $12 for women and $8 for men. Shampoo and style costs $10, and other services are offered at discounted rates.

There is limited availability in the afternoons by appointment only. Call Randy McCall, SCC’s cosmetology program coordinator, at (828)339-4238 to reserve a time slot.

Work is done entirely by students, who are supervised by SCC instructors. McCall said SCC cosmetology students are required to gain 1,052 hours of advanced lab work prior to graduation. The first 448 of those are spent strictly working with mannequins.

Students must complete a mandated number of live model performances, so clients from the community are vital to the success of cosmetology students in the classroom.

Manicuring and nail tech students offer their services from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursday. McCall recommends calling ahead to check availability.
