Cuts to Cosmetology

Due to budget cuts, the Cosmetology Department has been forced to not accept new students for their night program in the spring and has laid off three instructors.

According to Sudabeh Phillips, cosmetology instructor, by next fall the night program will be completely gone.

Phillips added that the program has also lost their teacher training program and student supplies budget.

“We will have to put a cap on how many clients students can see, and they will have to practice on dolls more often,” she said.
Current night classes student, Harmony Evans, said she understands the struggle new students that work in the day time will face.

“(The night program) is very convenient. I would have to quit my job if I only had the day program option,” said Evans. “(The cuts) are a big inconvenience.”
