Chattahoochee Tech Cosmetology Students Gain Real-World Salon Experience on Campus

Chattahoochee Tech Cosmetology students at the college’s North Metro Campus are gaining real-world career experience this fall in the program’s on-campus salon, which is open to the public. Under the supervision of their instructors, these students provide services which range from haircuts, hair styling and color, to facial treatments and manicures.

The Cosmetology program salon located on the North Metro Campus welcomes customers on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon, and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., according to Cosmetology Instructor Colette Arp, who noted that walk-ins are welcome. Prices range from five dollars for a manicure and ten dollars for a pedicure or facial, to eight dollars for a haircut.

Chattahoochee Tech Cosmetology student Mia Erv, of Cherokee County, began preparing for a career in cosmetology after graduating from River Ridge High School. “I feel confident about taking the state licensure exam after I graduate in December,” she said. “I’m excited about moving forward in my career right away as a Salon Assistant.”

The Chattahoochee Tech Cosmetology program meets state licensing requirements of the State Board of Cosmetology, and is available at the college’s North Metro, Marietta and Appalachian campuses. Cosmetology Program salons also are located on the Marietta and Appalachian campuses, and are open to the public during the spring semester.
