CHI Lone Star College-North Harris School of Cosmetology is hosting an open house at its facility, located at 910 E. Richey Road in Houston. Designed to introduce prospective students to the school’s offerings, the open house will take place on Monday, July 10 from 5 to 7 p.m.
The relationship between LSC-North Harris and Farouk Systems, makers of the famous CHI Ceramic Hairstyling Iron and ammonia-free CHI Ionic Hair Color, originally began in 2010 with professional development for instructors, access to more advanced CHI products for students, and expanded career opportunities for graduates.
The expanded partnership capitalizes on the world-renowned products and methods of Farouk Systems, along with the college’s expertise in education and training. Graduates are prepared to work in the most sought-after industry positions, and have an invaluable understanding of both client service and the manufacturing process.
The CHI LSC-North Harris School of Cosmetology offers programs leading to an AAS degree or certificates in cosmetology, esthetics, instruction, with both part-time and full-time options available. It also offers low-cost salon services to the community. Spring registration is now open and the program is currently taking applications for the upcoming semester. Prospective students can request additional information by calling 832.234.5600, or by visiting LoneStar.edu/CHIschool to begin the application process.
Students in the program will have an opportunity to develop cosmetology skills, including hair cutting, permanent waving, hair styling, manicuring, facials, hair coloring, hair-straightening and client consultation on hair care products.
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 nine 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.
Students impacted by the recent closing of the Regency Beauty Institute are encouraged to attend. College representatives will be available on site at the open house to answer questions regarding transferability, financial aid and curriculum.
“We are here to help these students complete their training,” said CHI Lone Star College-North Harris program director Tiffany Burton. “This is a great opportunity for them to meet with our staff to determine what their options are.”
Lone Star College-North Harris is located at 2700 W.W. Thorne Drive, one-half mile south of FM 1960 East, between Aldine-Westfield and Hardy Roads. For more information about the college, call 281.618.5400 or visit LoneStar.edu/NorthHarris.
