    “The Cosmetology Program is Awesome. The instructors are always there to encourage you and help you with whatever you are doing. When you start to lose your confidence they are right there to pick up you back up and to make sure you can do the work. When you get close to graduation they help you find a job that is the right fit for you. Thanks PCC and the Cosmo Teachers.” Cindy Bulling, Graduate 2011, Licensed Cosmetologist.
