LINDEN — The Linden High School Cosmetology program teaches that good haircuts begin with identifying reference points on the head form and understanding how this relates to cutting hair. Pictured here, student Krystel Medina is performing a graduated 45-degree elevation haircut on Alejandra Davila, under the supervision Ms. Fabre, the teacher.
Nicolette Dodge is performing a scalp massage treatment. Knowing the muscles, the location of blood vessels and the nerve points on the scalp will guide you to those areas most likely to benefit from massage movements. Students in the Cosmetology program study for three years, which culminates in taking the state cosmetology licensing exam. (Photos by Linden Public Schools)
