Shelton State Community College Cosmetology Hosts Cutting Out Cancer Event for Cancer Survivors

May 31, 2024 – The Shelton State Community College (SSCC) cosmetology salon will honor cancer survivors during Cutting Out Cancer: Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day on Tuesday, June 4, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.  No appointment is necessary for complimentary haircuts, manicures, and pedicures. All cancer survivors are invited to participate.


The beauty event is in recognition of Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day, which began in 2009 and has been permanently recognized by honorary proclamation in the Congressional Records by the United States House of Representatives, Resolution #494.  A nationwide event that takes place every year, this is a day of volunteering for those in beauty and related industries.


In addition to this special event, the SSCC cosmetology salon offers services to the public.  The salon, located on Shelton State’s Martin Campus, is open in the summer semester Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. for multiple services, including haircuts and manicures. Appointments can be made, but walk-in customers are welcome.


Revenue generated by SSCC cosmetology services supports the functions of the salon and allows students to attend classes from product educators and participate in continuing education opportunities prior to entering the industry.
