Happy Hour Clients Receive Cosmetology Services at MGTC
Warner Robins -Consumers from Happy Hour in Warner Robins recently came to the Cosmetology lab at Middle Georgia Technical College (MGTC) for haircuts and styling. Each Cosmetology student worked on different clients and explained the process while performing the service. The Happy Hour consumers come to MGTC each quarter to receive cosmetology services.
MGTC Cosmetology Program Chair Jolie Martin works with Happy Hour to arrange for their quarterly visit.
"This is a great project for our students," said Martin. "We love it when Happy Hour visits because it gives our students a chance to learn how to work with various types of clients and develop and enhance their skills even further."
