Meet the Cosmetology Instructors! L-R, Tricia Richard, Brenna Salay and Marianne King. Together these three instructors have over 60 years of cosmetology experience in color, cutting and esthetics.
The Cosmetology students are hard at work collecting hours for their license. They enjoy working on customers in their classroom and have been invited out to a number of settings to demonstrate their skills. In December and February, the cosmetology students visited Framingham Housing Authority to provide manicures for residents. The students had a great time practicing their skills on the residents!
In their free time, Mrs. Richard loves to knit and sew, Mrs. Salay loves visiting the beach, and Mrs. King loves attending concerts, and they all love spending time with their kids, grandchildren, and families!
We LOVE the Cosmetology department!
