"It costs us more than $600 for the kits and books," Suzi said, "but I want them to have the buy in [to the program] and I want them to be able to afford it." Most commercial cosmetology courses cost anywhere from $5,000 to $20,000. What is included in the $600 fee? Lisa showed off the large black bag that each student receives. It con- tains a smock, a kit with all professional products including a hairdryer and a textbook. She estimated it would cost about $600 for all those items at retail prices. Lisa said her students also take before and after photos of hairstyles to use in a portfolio. During the program, she will also cover professionalism, interviewing skills and she will bring in monthly guest speakers. Topics may in- clude finances, interview- ing skills and running your own salon business. In addition, she empha- sizes cleaning and sanita- tion and tells the students how important it is to maintain a clean facility. KristenVasquez, who is in the program and has a receptionist job at a Great Clips salon, said she can attest to the importance of cleaning. What prompted the girls to take this class? "I'm the girliest one out of my sisters," Torie Ortega said. "I braid my little sis- ter's hair every night." Both gifts said they want to go to college for busi- ness. Beginning in the spring, Hair by Hays (the name of the salon) will open its doors to the public on special nights. Clients will receive salon services at a discount because the stu- dents need experience. But Lisa plans to offer at least one salon night before the holiday break. The students will offer manicures, pedicures and braids. 'A lot of people that I tell how much it costs to get in here, they say it's a great price," Kristen said. "Many of the profes- sionals in the area I've talked to seem excited about the program," Lisa said. On the other side of the salon, Sierra Gonzalez was having her hair curled by Jennifer Alejandro. Sierra heard about the program last year from her mom. "I told her I would be willing to do that," she said. "But it seemed really fun." She already loved doing make-up. What would she say to anyone thinking about signing up for the cosme- tology program? "Just go for it. It's a really fun program," Sierra said. "You learn a lot from it. You get to do a lot of stuff you never did before."
