Low Cost Beauty Services on Campus

By Zaneta Kennedy
Did you know that you can get a free or low cost haircut at Trident Tech? In fact, there are several services offered through the TTC Cosmetology Department for less than five dollars.
The Cosmetology Department offers a number of services at the Berkeley Campus: highlights, under-the dryer deep conditioning, relaxers and more. These services are open to the public, and walk-ins are accepted. Sometimes, certain services can be arranged for free if there is a need; contact a cosmetology instructor for more information. To make an appointment, call 899-8052.
Operation hours vary by semester. Services will take place in room 159 of Berkeley Campus main building. The Cosmetology Department also offers services at the Summerville Campus at 449 Old Trolley Rd.
Don’t worry. These stylists know what they are doing. Cosmetology majors undergo a 16-month program that requires 1500 class hours to graduate and pass the state board. Twenty-one cosmetology seniors graduated this December.
Mary Nease is among the seniors. Nease chose to major in cosmetology “to make people beautiful.” Nease says, “If you look good, you feel good. If you can make people look better, you can make them feel better. It’s all about self-esteem.”
