As the new school year started we were all very excited to meet new faces!

Here at Highland Cosmetology/ Nail Tech we start off with orientation for new students, this helps them get a bit more familiar with the day to day tasks.

Week one of the program we have completed the Safety, Emergency+ First Aid Procedures. In this lesson they get to learn about types of fire extinguishers, the purpose of one and how to correctly locate and use an extinguisher in case of an emergency. We talk about the do's and don’ts if a tornado should ever happen. Last but not least students learn about all the safety procedures during any service in the salon.

The second and third week of school students will learn about Infection control, cleaning, disinfecting, all different kinds of bacteria, viruses and fungi, how to keep themselves and their client safe and how to prevent transmission of any kind.

This is all very valuable information for a new cosmetologist.
