Clark County Skills Center unveils new Salon (Photo)
The new Clark County Skills Center Cosmetology Salon will be open for business starting Monday, September 22nd from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The Cosmetology program and Salon recently moved from an off-campus location on Fourth Plain, to the Skills Center campus, 12200 NE 28th Street, as its new building was completed this fall.
The Salon provides a work-experience site for area high school students enrolled in the Skills Center's Cosmetology program who are on track to obtain a Washington state beauty operator's license. Services are offered to the public at very reasonable prices, ranging from basic haircuts ($5.50) to hair color services ($15-$50+) to manicures ($6-$7) and pedicures ($10-$11), as well as special occasion packages ($18.50-$31). All services are performed by students under their instructor's supervision.
The new Salon offers a spa-like experience with new, state-of-the art equipment. Regular hours of operation are Mondays through Thursdays from 12:00 noon to 5:00 PM. To make an appointment, call 360-604-1080. Walk-ins are welcome during Salon hours. The Salon does follow the Evergreen School District calendar so hours are subject to change.
The Clark County Skills Center began in 1983 as a cooperative educational venture between eight Southwest Washington School Districts. The vision of those districts was to create a school, in partnership with business, "to prepare students for the work force" by offering students the opportunity to be trained in technical career areas too expensive for a single district to fund. Today, there are over 1,000 students enrolled in 16 programs of study.
