Lacombe Composite High School’s cosmetology and esthetics class is planning a New York field trip for April 2013.
Superintendent Larry Jacobs says the intent of the trip is to get students to realize there’s more to the cosmetology industry than just hair and nails.
“It’s about the whole presentation,” said Jacobs. Hair and nails are a part but it’s also about how to dress and accessorize, and how to blend it all together.
“New York is one of the most powerful centres for that,” said Jacobs.
Students will spend almost a week in New York visiting a variety of salons.
The trip will cost $2,300 per student. However, the school will fundraise to help offset some costs of the trip.
