Vantage senior Cosmetology student and program President Kayla Graham (Paulding) supports fellow senior Nitza Florez Flete (Jefferson) while she sits for her eyebrow waxing skills exam in preparation for opening day of the Avantagé Salon.
The Avantagé Salon will be open for business starting October 19 at Vantage Career Center. The Vantage Cosmetology seniors will manage the salon from 8:30 – 11:00 a.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays weekly, and currently scheduling appointments.
The Avantagé Salon offers a variety of hair and beauty services, including hair care, manicures, gel polish, pedicures, permanents, hair cutting and styling. Even more specialty services will be available later in the year, such as hair coloring, facials, paraffin dipping for extremely dry hands, tea tree experience, deep conditioning treatment and aromatherapy.
The Vantage Cosmetology program introduces juniors to basic knowledge of skills in the beauty industry, such as shampooing, cutting, and styling hair as well as manicures, pedicures and specialized nail services to their clients. Seniors in this program then use their fundamental skills for a soft Salon opening, and continue to use advanced techniques throughout the year to deliver a wide-range of skin care and nail treatments, while continuously gaining experience working and managing a full-service salon. Upon completion of the program and meeting the requirements of the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology, Vantage students become eligible to take the state examination prior to graduation.

Please note that if school is on a delay, cosmetology services are canceled for the day. Vantage Career Center welcomes you to the Avantagé Salon.
