New date selected to make up for storm closure

The cosmetology center at Northeastern Junior College announced in late January that it would again be open this year on some select Saturdays during spring semester to offer its services to the public.  In the original announcement, the students were going to offer hair, nail and skin services on Saturday, February 4th, but due to large storm last week, they decided to be closed on this date. Instead, they will now be open on the following Saturdays: March 3, March 24th and  April 28th.  Students are available for appointments from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Space is limited on these special Saturday dates, so make your appointments now by calling 521-6733.

The students in the cosmetology program must complete numerous hours demonstrating their learned skills by providing client services with various types of hair, nail, and skin-related skills.  Among the services offered are haircuts, hair styles, perms, coloring, deep conditioning hair treatments, manicures, artificial nails, pedicures, eyebrow services and facials. Services are offered at a reduced cost as they are provided in a learning environment under the supervision of instructors. Sometimes the services take a bit longer than usual because the students are new at the tasks.  Women, men and children are all welcome to come to the center.

Services are also provided on week days from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on a walk-in basis and by appointment. Any hair services requiring the use of chemicals (coloring, perms) must be scheduled in the morning. To make an appointment for a week day service, call this same number listed above.  The center is located at the corner of Sydney Avenue and Landrum Lane on the northwest corner of the main campus.
