SCC to Offer Natural Hair Care Specialist Course in January


Surry Community College is offering a Natural Hair Care Specialist course beginning January 8, 2024, and running through May 9, 2024, at the Dobson Campus.

The class teaches students how to care for natural hair without using hair color, perms, relaxers, or other chemicals. The course includes styling techniques such as braiding, twisting, wrapping, extending, and locking natural hair. It also covers bacteriology and infection control, client consultations, business management, professional ethics, and more.

Students will be able to practice on manikins and apply their skills on live clients who visit the SCC Salon.

Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to take the N.C. State Board of Cosmetic Arts exam to become a licensed Natural Hair Care Specialist. Natural Hair Care Specialist careers are under the oversight of the N.C. Board of Cosmetic Art Examiners.
