On Monday March 13th the senior hairdressing class had two professional artists come to our school to give an advanced seminar.  Beauty experts representing Design Essentials demonstrated products and services to the seniors.

Yolanda Leatherwood and Debbie MacDonald were the presenters of the day.  They taught our hairdressing students chemical product knowledge and styling products with resulting benefits.  They also informed the students on advanced styling techniques and customer service retention.  It was a very informative, fun day.
