CHI Lone Star College-North Harris School of Cosmetology has planned a series of fall open houses at its facility, located at 910 E. Richey Road in Houston. Designed to introduce prospective students to the school’s offerings, the first of the fall open houses will take place on Monday, Sept. 8 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., with a second planned for Monday, Oct. 6, also from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
“The demand for cosmetology professionals in the Houston-area has been strong,” said Kendall Lawrence, interim dean of career and applied technology at LSC-North Harris. “In response to the demand for these careers in our area, we plan to host monthly open houses to give the community an opportunity to see our facility first-hand and learn about course opportunities that are available throughout the semester.”
The CHI LSC-North Harris School of Cosmetology offers programs leading to certificates in cosmetology, esthetics, and instruction, with both part-time and full-time options available. It also offers low-cost salon services to the community.
The state-of-the-art space is also home to the LSC-North Harris Massage Therapy Program, where students can complete their massage therapy certification in as little as seven months. Much like the cosmetology program, the massage program works closely with industry partners to ensure its graduates are prepared to succeed in the workplace.
