CTS youth were treated to complementary haircut and nail services recently by the high school cosmetology students at Burlington County Institute of Technology (BCIT) Westampton.
The BCIT students stayed after school and were able to show off their skills to the benefit of the pleased teens from Community Treatment Solutions.
” My students were excited when they heard that they would be doing hair and nails for kids their own age,” said BCIT cosmetology teacher Kimberly Williams. “It’s a win-win. Our students got community service hours and more practice and the girls from CTS benefited as well. Even if they weren’t earning service points, my (BCIT) kids told me that they would have done it anyway, as they like to give back.”
Williams refers to the cosmetology department as one of the best kept secrets in Burlington County. While walk ins are not allowed, the general public can make appointments for services every Thursday that school is in session at 8:30 AM and 12:00 PM by calling 609-267-4226, x8358 or x8368.
