Career Fair at Wethersfield Campus

International Institute of Cosmetology, Wethersfield campus recently had their career fair. It was a full house with 4 salons that cater to different clientele. It gave students the chance to hear about different parts of the beauty business.

@Thebarbershopct located in Wallingford is a barber shop that creates a relaxing environment for their clients. Chelsea has been with them for 5 years and enjoys that her clients can pick from their a la carte menu. She dispells the myth that male hair services are less profitable than female hair services. “My clients get a scalp massage and grey blending hair color and by the time they are finished ( the cost  including haircut ) is higher than a woman’s color service.” Chelsea says that when she finished hairdressing school she thought she would do woman’s color. After being out of school for a year, the “wow factor” she felt after creating men’s hair transformations she knew that was her path.
