Cosmetology class creates custom looks


Myah Runyan , Student Life Writer

Montoria McFarland, who is a freelance makeup artist from Marshall, came to the CTE cosmetology classes to present a lesson for cosmetology students on proper makeup application and techniques on March 5th. McFarland was able to demonstrate on models from the class.

“Montoria  was able to demonstrate how to properly apply cosmetics to give a flawless effect on all skin tones. She exceeded my expectations, and my students loved her presentation as well. She exemplified professionalism and true artistry in her work”, said cosmetology teacher Lori Center. “I am appreciative of her willingness to come to my classes and show them one avenue of becoming successful in the industry.”

In addition, junior Darrius Warren also attended a cosmetology class to demonstrate barber techniques on the following day including a taper fade haircut with designs.

Second-year cosmetology students will move to a newly constructed CTE classroom for the fall of 2018 where they will clock hours with hands-on training. This program will allow students to graduate high school with a valid cosmetology license so they can immoderately work in a salon upon graduation.
