BHS opens students cosmetology services to public



“I have five boys barbering, so we offer clients barber services as well. We don’t have the space right now for facials, but hopefully we can offer it in the future,” Walker said. “The money we raise will go toward the purchase of supplies for the program in order for us to continue to use the most current and up-to-date products.”

While students earn a grade by learning and mastering various services listed on their task sheet, which follows state board guidelines, students will have the opportunity to take the state board exam in April to earn their cosmetology license before high school graduation.

“I’m studying to get my cosmetology license here and then after graduation I want to go to the army. By getting the license, it will save a lot of time and I don’t have to worry about it afterward; I will have something to fall back on while I wait to go to the army and I can go ahead and work in a salon,” said senior Daisha Morris, who enjoys working with hair. “I think the cosmetology course here is good for the underclassmen because they get to experience Salon Services I, Salon Services II and the advanced class all in this room.”

The Baldwin College & Career Academy services high school students in grades nine through 12, featuring career pathways in education, culinary arts, agriculture science, health care science, government and public safety, family and consumer sciences, business and computer science, marketing, sales and services, and architecture, construction, communications and transportation.

The Career Academies Project is spearheaded by Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and is a collaboration between the Technical College System of Georgia and the Georgia Department of Education.

Student hair and spa services are available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and by appointment only from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
