Cosmetology Students At Virginia College Offer Free Beauty Services To Cancer Survivors June 6

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

To honor those affected by cancer and as a part of national Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day, the students at V’s Student Cosmetology Services at Virginia College in Chattanooga will offer complimentary haircuts, styling, manicures, pedicures, eyebrow waxing, and makeover services on Tuesday, June 6 from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.  The services will be offered on their campus, 721 Eastgate Loop, Suite C.

Survivors interested in receiving the services are asked to call 423-893-2025 to make an appointment.

“It has been great watching our students love what they’re learning and become inspired to use their skills to help others,” said Campus President Dominick DeLorenzo. “Cancer has affected our Virginia College family, too, so it has been a real honor to be able to contribute to this cause.”

CSBSD is a volunteer event held on the first Tuesday in June. Members of the beauty and related industries in all 50 states offer complimentary services to all men, women, and children who are cancer survivors, regardless of their type of cancer or when they were diagnosed.

"All cancer survivors are invited to participate, and for many, CSBSD is the only time during the year that they receive a little extra personal kindness, warm support, and tender pampering.
V’s allows students to learn the skills and creativity they will need to be successful in their cosmetology careers. V’s services include haircuts, hairstyling, permanent hair treatments, color treatments, braiding, extensions, body care, nail care, make-up, and esthetic services. All work is performed by Virginia College Cosmetology students under the direct supervision of licensed cosmetology instructors."

Set Up A Council On Love, Not A Council On Hate - And Response

In Mayor Berke's April 19 version of the Berke Bulletin, he announced plans to establish a Council on Hate and indicated a focus on tolerance. I beg of him to reconsider that plan.
