The South Florida State College cosmetology clinic will begin accepting appointments from the public Tuesday, Oct. 29 at the SFSC Highlands Campus. The clinic offers hair design, haircuts, perms, coloring, facials, makeup, eyebrow arching, and manicures by SFSC cosmetology students at low cost.

Clinic hours are by appointment, Tuesday through Friday. Appointment times are available from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. To schedule an appointment, call 863-453-4949.

“The clinic is an excellent opportunity for students to learn the required technical skills to be successful in the industry,” said Timothy Johnson, program manager and instructor. “Clients time and time again say how much they like the salon environment and the fact that the students take their time to complete the services they render and that the instructor is always near if needed.

The Cosmetology program at SFSC is a 101⁄2 month course that focuses on careers in hair design, nail services, and skin care. Following completion of the program, students receive an occupational certificate and are eligible to register as a skin care specialist with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

Individual classes are also available in skin care and nail specialties for those who wish to develop or enhance specific skills.

For more information on the program, call Johnson at 863-784-7143.
