BHS opens students cosmetology services to public

MILLEDGEVILLE — Baldwin High School students involved in cosmetology courses are enhancing their skills even further as they finally welcome the public into their real-life-like salon to provide student cosmetology services starting Tuesday.

“When we open up to the community, it will help us prepare for the real world by learning how to style properly on real customers. We can get good practice and maybe even be interested in opening up our own shop,” said senior Khadijah James while practicing hair-coloring techniques on a mannequin Friday. “People should come in and give us an opportunity to show our creative styles.”

Located in the Baldwin College & Career Academy at the high school, the cosmetology classroom and lab is equipped with new sinks, dryer chairs and stations with mirrors, styling chairs, styling tools and products. The entire salon is operated and serviced by the students, from scheduling appointments and styling to ensuring all clients have a great experience.

“When clients call, the receptionist will greet them and ask them what they would like to have done. They can also request a particular student for a service, or we can fit them with someone who is just as knowledgeable,” said Latonia Walker, cosmetology and SkillsUSA teacher. “The work is going to be done by the students, but I’m here to assist and help the students in the learning environment.”

Hair services include $2 shampoo with conditioner, $5 hair scalp treatments, $15 relaxer, $5 hair cuts, and $5 to $15 hair styling services, including basic wrap, braiding, blow dry, up do’s, flat irons, hot curls and roller set. Nail care services, including manicures, pedicures, nail design, polish and paraffin wax dip range from $2 to $8 while waxing of the eyebrows, arms and legs start at $4 and a $15 basic facial cleansing. Nursing students will offer their massage services of the hands, arms and legs also.
