The juniors of the Cosmetology program are looking ahead to a wonderful educational opportunity at America’s Beauty Show that will be held in March 2016, in the windy city of Chicago. They have planned several fundraising events to help defray the cost of the trip. Their first major event is a Quarter Auction on Wednesday, March 4, 2015. Mark your calendars now for a fun-filled event full of great gifts and yummy treats.
America’s Beauty Show will provide the students with great opportunities to see new trends in hair and beauty as well as the chance to interact with industry professionals. Students will participate in educational seminars, view product, tool and equipment demonstrations and try out many of the new products at the show. Instructor Lori Messner said, “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the students to see vendors, stylists and industry professionals on such a grand scale. They will see great hair cutting shows on the big stage, full of wonderful fashion and makeup, and experience many new products that are being introduced to the public. It is an amazing opportunity for students who want to work in the cosmetology profession.”
The instructors estimate that it will cost between $600-$800 per student to attend the show including travel, food, and hotel expenses. The students have taken on the challenge and are working hard to raise the funds needed for this opportunity. We look forward to seeing graduates, family and friends on Wednesday, March 4, for a great event to support the students’ dream trip!
