Minnesota School of Cosmetology (MSC) students have a variety of projects and assignments that they complete while at MSC. One of the assignments is called the Muscles and Bones of Head/Face/Neck. A few students have taken this project to the next level and have used a human head instead of the Styrofoam head they receive.
“Jamie was the perfect person to work on the assignment with—he was bald already,” said MSC student Aida Jackson
This project is a great tool for students to understand where the different bones and muscles are on the human head, face and neck.
Aida said, “Using an actual head helped us really understand where the different muscles and bones are. We were very excited to see the students and instructors reaction to our finished project!”
The school offers the complete 1550-hour course in cosmetology, which is the art and science of beauty care. It involves the study and care of the skin, hair, scalp and nails. Students receive classes in theory, which gives them a basic scientific knowledge of various subjects such as chemistry, anatomy, physiology, haircutting, hair styling, permanent waving, hair coloring, manicuring, facials, pin curling, roller placement, and salon management.
In addition, practical classes are also given prior to clinic floor training. After successful completion of the course and passing the state board examination, several career options become open to the licensed cosmetologist, such as manager operator, nail technician or cosmetic technician, competition or platform stylist, salon owner, salon manager, or school instructor. This course is designed with the individual in mind, keeping up with the current trends in the field of cosmetology.
