What's the public image of your cosmetology school? Does your prospective school participate in any projects? This may be something to consider when choosing a cosmetology school. If you already go to a cosmetology school, you may want to suggest participating in a project to your teachers.

"COLUMBIA (WACH) – Cosmetology school students and staff used their skills to raise money to help children fighting cancer.

The Kenneth Shuler School of Cosmetology's 7th annual 'Cuts for Cancer' raised $3,037.04 for Childrens Chance.

Children's Chance is a Columbia-based, non-profit organization that helps children with cancer and their families with non-medical needs such as financial assistance, counseling, and school supplies.

Students and staff from the St. Andrews Road and Garners Ferry Road campuses rallied together during the week of May 15-20 to offer a variety of $5 beauty services to the public including haircuts, mini manicures, mini pedicures, eyebrow waxings, lip waxings, chin waxings, beard trims, and mustache trims. The schools also sponsored basket raffles, bake sales, jeans days for students, and hot dog sales in an effort to raise money.

The money was presented to Childrens Chance officials on Wednesday."
