It includes customized cutting and shaving, style up-dos and additions, chemical straightening and colour correction. It also incorporates business practices. Students train in classrooms and a state of the art salon at VCC's Downtown campus, with ample opportunity to practice their skills and to demonstrate their knowledge.
