In order to meet the growing demand of the cosmetology industry, CHI Lone Star College-North Harris School of Cosmetology will hold an open house at its state-of-the-art facility for prospective students on November 30 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 910 E. Richey Road in Houston.
The CHI LSC-North Harris School of Cosmetology, which opened in January 2014, offers numerous programs leading to certificates in cosmetology, esthetics and instruction, with both part-time and full-time options available. The school also offers low-cost salon services to the community including waxing, massages, haircut and coloring and facials.
According to Tiffany Burton, director of the CHI LSC-North Harris School of Cosmetology, “This is a great time to be in the cosmetology industry, especially in Houston, which is experiencing tremendous growth.” Burton cited a Bureau of Labor Statistics report in 2010, which said that jobs in the cosmetology industry are expected to grow at a rate of 16 percent between 2010 and 2020.
“Another reason for the growing number of cosmetology jobs is simply because the beauty industry is flourishing,” Burton added. Consumers demand for beauty treatments such as hair coloring, facials and other advanced treatments has been increasing every year.
The CHI LSC-North Harris School of Cosmetology brings the world-renowned methods and products of Farouk Systems, Inc. to the high-demand cosmetology program at LSC-North Harris and adds to the programs' 37-year reputation for excellence.
“Our cosmetology courses are taught by seasoned faculty with significant experience as professional cosmetologists,” according to Burton. “They have also undergone specialized training at the Farouk Systems headquarters in north Houston and use the Farouk Systems methods, and the CHI™, Biosilk and Sunglitz product lines, exclusively, in the instruction of students.”
The facility 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.
Burton added that students can apply for full- or part-time programs and begin as early as next semester. Spring 2016 registration officially opens November 11. Prospective students can request additional information by calling 832.234.5600, or by visiting LoneStar.edu/CHIschool to begin the application process.
