The program, which started last fall, will be welcoming clients from 5 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at the West Richland Center in Noble. Eight students are currently enrolled.

Pedicures, manicures, gel polish, nail art and paraffin therapy are among the many services available. Nail enhancements will be offered beginning in March.

Instructor Barbara Handlin said now is the perfect time to stop in for a paraffin treatment to relieve dry, chapped hands brought on by winter weather or to provide soothing warmth to those suffering from arthritis.

“We appreciate everyone patronizing the Nail Tech Salon and being a part of our students’ education by stopping by and getting services done,” Handlin said. “They are doing us a huge favor when they let our students perform these services.”

In return, clients receive salon-quality treatments at greatly reduced costs. A gel polish manicure is just $9, a pedicure is $8 and the paraffin therapy is just $4. OCC students and IECC employees also receive a 25-percent discount on each service.

To schedule an appointment, call 618-395-1169.
