FYI: Summer fun is almost over and most students are getting ready for their first day of school. To help kindergarten through 12th-grade students be ready, Del Mar College’s dual credit cosmetology class will provide free haircuts on a walk-in basis.

Providing free haircuts has become an important way for Del Mar College’s Cosmetology Program and its students to give back to the community.

DMC stylists provided haircuts to nearly 200 students last year. Gonzalez said the yearly event not only offers a free service to area students, it provides dual credit cosmetology students with hands-on learning experiences. 

The Cosmetology Program is with the DMC Human Sciences and Education Department. Students receive training in all phases of cosmetology, and the program falls under curriculum guidelines of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.
