OCC Cosmetology Program Accepting New Students 

Olney Central College’s Cosmetology Program is currently accepting new students for the spring semester.

Students enrolled in Cosmetology participate in both classroom and clinical experiences. The program covers all facets of the industry, including hair shaping, skin care, makeup, permanent waving, shampooing, scalp treatments, hair styling and chemical hair relaxing. Pedicures, manicures, massage and shop management also are covered.

Instructor Linda Miller said the latest hair coloring trends are taught, with representatives from manufacturers such as Matrix coming to work with the students.

Completion of the program qualifies students to take a state examination for registration as a licensed cosmetologist in the state of Illinois. Qualified students, who begin the program in January, will be able to complete their certificates by December 2018.

For more information, contact OCC Student Services at 618-395-7777. Classes start Jan. 8.
