There are many people who rely on SLCC to provide for them, and some of them aren’t students. Many in the surrounding community near the Taylorsville Redwood Campus go to the school’s Barbering and Cosmetology program to receive hair cuts that they normally wouldn’t be able to afford.
- Men’s Hair Cut: $2.00
- Women’s Hair Cut: $3.00

SLCC recently announced that it is canceling its Cosmetology and Barbering program, much to the dismay of many students and community members.
Glenda Peterson, a member of the community who uses the school to get her hair cut thinks that the school’s decision to cut the program is a mistake.
“It [earning your license] allows mothers to create their own schedules and be with their children or go out and start their own businesses. A lot of the girls go onto more than $8.00 an hour jobs,” says Peterson.
The school is canceling the program because the costs associated with running it are more than the program brings in.
Many students choose SLCC because it offers low cost alternatives to the more expensive private schools.
“I wouldn’t be able to go to hair school if it wasn’t for SLCC,” says McKenzie Pherson, who is almost done with her time in the program.
Some students chose the program at SLCC because they would be able to not only study Cosmetology or Barbering, but also any other program that SLCC currently offers.
“This school [SLCC] is the only school that has the Interpreting program and Cosmetology school that I could find. If SLCC took away this program they would take away something that nobody else has,” says current student Dellany Olsen, who came to SLCC for the ASL program as well as the Cosmetology program.
