Cosmetology at TCCC

Tri-County Community College’s Cosmetology students sat in with a guest speaker from Icon Shears on Sept. 13 at the main campus in Peachtree.

Icon Shears is a manufacturer of professional-grade shears for the cosmetology industry based in Nashville, TN.
Students were able to touch and feel more than 100 various designs to get a feel for which style meets their personal needs and desires.

“This was a wonderful opportunity for the students since their shears can be their biggest investment outside of their education and selection can be confusing,” said Misty Kelischek, spa therapies coordinator at the College.

The representative offered on-site learning opportunities at TCCC and taught students the essential basics about shears, including the following:

· Materials used in the manufacturing process
· Components
· Various designs and related ergonomic benefits
· Proper selection and sizing
· Care and maintenance
