Several dozen San Diego City College cosmetology students will be providing free haircuts, manicures and face paintings at the San Diego County Fair on Friday, June 17. The haircuts and face paintings, part of the SDCCD’s Start Something Amazing Day at the fair, enables cosmetology students to secure the practical hours required to secure state board certification.

Approximately 60 cosmetology students will be on hand from noon to 5 p.m. in the Student Showcase Area. The Student Showcase Area features student projects from San Diego County schools, colleges, and adult education programs.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to get the experience they need while providing members of the public a free haircut or manicure,” said Shakerra Carter, Associate Dean, Outreach & Pre-Enrollment Services.

Last year, hundreds of fairgoers were provided free haircuts, manicures and face paintings.

City College’s Cosmetology/Esthetician program is among the top in the state, with students boasting a 100 percent pass rate on the practical section of the exam and a 94 percent pass rate on the written section.

The Student Showcase Area is on the first floor of the West Grandstand.
