CedarBridge nurture skills of future cosmetologists

Hair we go: students show their hairdressing skills

The personal care 3 students of CedarBridge Academy had the opportunity to practise their hairdressing skills on clients.

The personal care courses are popular at CedarBridge; however, to move into this advanced class, students must have the needed skills to perform well.

The talented students Teyah Lindo, Essette Winters, Kylah Hunt and Shezmere Simmons each used their knowledge of washing, braiding, treating hair and many other skills on their teachers on January 27, 2017.

Ms Vivian Millings, the personal care teacher at CedarBridge oversaw her students work during their new experience. This was the first time the students worked on clients as opposed to mannequins and they were very professional with the assistance of their teacher. The clients, Mrs Burch, Mrs Wolfe, Ms Harshaw and Ms Edwards received various styles and treatments from the students and each seemed very pleased with the results. Mrs Burch says “I enjoyed being a part of their learning experience, the girls did a great job.”

In personal care, students are exposed to a wide variety of skills. Besides learning how to do hair, this advanced class is taught how to do manicures, pedicures, eyebrows and even about the skin. Learning about all of these components of the beauty industry will give students an advantage at cosmetology school.

Ms Milling’s hands-on approach has proven to be quite beneficial to the students.

The students in this class aspire to finish high school and become leading cosmetologists. Students who wish to pursue other careers still believe the skills learnt in this class will be useful in life. With the understanding of personal care, these skilled students have the ability to do well in this field, given their excellent foundation.
