Cosmo program offering free cuts for kids

Sep 5, 2017

With a new school year underway, everyone could use a fresh cut and style to make a good first impression. Ashland Community and Technical College is offering the community a way to get just that, without breaking the bank.

The cosmetology program is hosting a Back-to-School Bash from 8:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Sept. 5-7 where children can receive free haircuts.

Mourine Smith, cosmetology program director, said the reason for the event is two-fold.

“It benefits the community because the children receive haircuts for free for school, and cosmetology students benefit from this because they get more hands-on experience with haircuts and client consultations, as well as client interaction,” she said.

During the Back-to-School Bash, anyone who schedules a chemical service will receive a free wax. Faculty, staff and students at ACTC will also receive free shampoos, haircuts and styles.

“We’ve done this before but it has been a while so we wanted to bring it back,” Smith said. “We want to get the word out about all the services that we do offer at a discounted rate, but for the same quality as a salon.”
