Grant Career Center Cosmetology Salon opens

Cosmetology seniors Andrea Philpott and Sarah Moore team up on opening day to provide great beauty services for their client.
Twelve Cosmetology II students from Grant Career Center, supervised by Sue Goodman, senior instructor, opened their salon for business on Sept. 13. Current salon hours are 11:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays.

The salon offers a wide variety of services, including haircuts, color, perms, waxes, facials, and manicures. Conditioning treatments, highlights, lowlights, shampoos, and sets are also available. Clients are charged a minimal cost, ranging from $1 for a shampoo, $2 for a haircut, to $16 for a perm, or up to $30 for a color service.

The school is located west of Bethel on State Route 125 with the salon entrance in the front of the building. For an appointment, clients should call (513) 734-6222.

The salon provides students with exposure to clients and with practical experience to help them pass their state boards and prepare for the work world.

Cosmetology senior Andrea Philpott said, “I really enjoy working with clients and preparing for the state board examination. Every day I have the opportunity to practice my skills and build my clientele. I want to attend make-up school and become a personal stylist after graduation and this is a great way to get the experience I need to be successful.”

Senior Cosmetology students having worked in the salon during their junior year, enter their senior year experienced and confident.

Senior Sarah Moore enjoys working in the salon creating new looks for the clients.

“I like interacting with clients and making them happy. I really enjoy practicing my skills and making clients look and feel their very best.”

Many clients have been visiting the Grant Career Center salon for years. Mrs. Goodman and the Cosmetology students are eager to see former clients and welcome new ones. They invite the public to stop in and find a beautiful new look.
