South cosmetology receives more than 400 inches of hair!

The San Jacinto College South cosmetology department received more than 400 inches of donated hair last week during the Share Your Hair event.

Clients from across the Houston area visited the South campus to receive their free haircuts in exchange for donating their ponytails toward the Locks of Love organization. Ellie Meyer, coordinator of student life, had plenty of hair to give  and appeared on live television on Fox 26 Morning News to have SJC student Jarrod Jantz and cosmetology chair Mary Lindsay cut off 40 inches of her hair. Inmigrante TV and ABC13 also publicized the event, stopping by the South campus to interview cosmetology students and instructors, Pandora Freestone and Elida Mercado.
