(March 25, 2021 4:56 PM) The Jackson Area Career Center 11th Annual Hair and Fashion Show was held as a Facebook Live event Wednesday afternoon. The annual showcase and competition among 11th and 12th grade cosmetology students was attended by more than 500 people in this first-ever virtual presentation.
Organizers termed the event a great success as emcee Joel Freehling introduced student competitors, interacted with the virtual audience and gave away gift baskets full of salon products to three viewers chosen at random during the show.
Career Center Cosmetology Program instructors expressed how proud they were of all the students and the hard work they put into the show. Students displayed their work on mannequins; typically live models participate for the seniors’ showcase but due to COVID precautions, all students presented their work on mannequins.

The Jackson Area Career Center also announced the Sheer Technique campus salon will open to the public after spring break, starting April 6 on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. This will allow students and staff to ensure proper safety protocols for themselves and clients. Some services will be scaled back in the interest of safety, so no facials or lip waxing – but plenty of hair & nail related services will be available – like cuts & color, and manicures and pedicures. Having the salon open allows students to get their hours and experience to prepare them for their state boards and their future careers.
