My Students

My class consists of creative, artistic and trendy students who are striving to become licensed Cosmetologists. This is a 2 year program and the first year is dedicated to introducing a strong foundation which will provide them with the technical and theory training necessary to become proficient within the Cosmetology Industry.

Striving to be great is what my students are achieving every day and anything we can do to encourage that I would be grateful for any assistance during this exciting time in their lives.

My Project

I am asking for a variety of cosmetology tools including some mannequin training heads, clips, capes, and combs. The tools that I have selected for my students are similar to the ones they received in their kit during the 1st year of their program, unfortunately a lot of these items have either been lost or thrown away due to excessive use.

A dollar goes a long way and with these donations, I will be able to provide my students with the tools they need.

Lack of supplies will no longer be an issue.

I will take complete responsibility for dispensing these supplies and collecting them so they are accounted for.

The excitement my students displayed once they received the manikins from a previous project was an amazing experience. To know that so many people contributed really made them want to do better in class. Please help my students get the resources they need to be successful.
