It is said that when people look their best, they feel their best. Many know how it feels-standing in front of the mirror each morning trying to figure out just what to do to make them stand out the most. Should you go curly or straight, spiky or messy? While there are hundreds of hairstyles to choose from, the salon located at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus at Salt Lake Community College is helping students and faculty, as well as the community, help maintain and keep a fresh and stylish hairdo. You don’t even have to take a step off campus to get that new hairdo you’ve been wanting thanks to the great cosmetology program here at SLCC.
The cosmetology program is a lot more than just a program. With all the unique services, from men’s and women’s haircuts, to styles, perms, manicures and pedicures, you wouldn’t think that it’s a program to help students gain experience and launch careers. With a staff of more than 280 students, as well as 36 licensed instructors, no matter what your needs or wants are, they are there to help.
One of the more popular services they provide is that of men’s haircuts. Not necessarily because of the fact that there are so many men walking around campus and men in general in the community, but because a haircut will only cost men $2.
“Wow it doesn’t get any better than that,” Landon Gardner said of the $2 haircuts.
“It’s a win-win situation,” he said, “It makes me feel good inside knowing, that not only am I being helped out, but at the same time I’m helping someone in return by letting them cut my hair. I would totally recommend this to all my friends and to anyone who wants a good haircut for an even better price.”
Julie Giles, a mother of five, recently took her boys down to get haircuts in the SLCC cosmetology salon.
“It’s a monthly tradition for my sons and I to come down and for them to get their haircuts,” said Giles. “The program here at SLCC is fantastic. With all the economic troubles lately, it definitely helps a mother’s budget out with the great affordable prices they have. If I went anywhere else the normal prices for men’s haircuts are around 12 to 13 bucks a piece. With four boys, that can add up real fast. However, by coming here I am easily saving a lot of money that I can be using on other things that I need or want. Plus we like supporting the college in any way we can.”
“They do a great job, I like it a lot, especially when they wash my hair and style me up,” said Giles’ son, Jason.
So what makes the cosmetology program at SLCC so great? Is it the great affordable prices? What about the great business hours? No matter your schedule, you are likely to find the time. Appointments aren’t necessary and they accept walk-ins. With such a large staff, including licensed instructors on-hand, whatever kind of haircut or style you want, it’s exactly what you’ll get. With so many great services to choose from and for whatever reason you are there, the SLCC cosmetology students are there to serve you.
The salon is open Monday through Friday, located at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus in the Administration Building. They accept walk-ins or call 801-957-4030 to schedule an appointment or to ask for more information regarding their services.
