Pueblo, Colorado – IntelliTec College cosmetology students performed six-dollar haircuts during an impromptu Cut-A-Thon to aid the victims of the Waldo Canyon wildfire. $200 was raised for the cause and was sent to Care and Share in Colorado Springs.
The students pulled this event together in just two days after collectively deciding they wanted to help victims using the very skills they are learning at IntelliTec. Approximately 25 beauty school students provided the haircuts, accepting walk-ins as well as appointments. The event was held at the Cosmetology School Clinic at IntelliTec College of Pueblo on June 29th from 8:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.
Cosmetology Program Supervisor Melissa Bruce says “students asked if we could do something as a team in order to help those in Colorado Springs who were affected by the fires. This was a great opportunity to help and raise money together.” Clients were thrilled to be donating to such a worthy clause while getting a professional salon hair cut in the process.
The students advertised the event by word of mouth, with flyers and by calling local radio stations. Bruce comments “the students have raised money once in the past by doing a cut-a-thon and will continue to donate time for this in the future.” Students are excited for the next opportunity to help those in their community.
Beauty school students training at IntelliTec College get hands-on experience performing professional salon services in the Cosmetology School Salon under the supervision of their instructors. This 15-month Professional Certificate program can help them prepare to sit for the Colorado State Board of Barbers and Cosmetologists licensure exams, which are requirements to becoming a licensed cosmetologist in Colorado.[boilerplate about-pueblo]
