Students and graduates volunteer to help nearly 50 young patients look and feel their best at annual event
Two dozen Minnesota School of Cosmetology (MSC) students and graduates will volunteer to do the hair and makeup for nearly 50 attendees at the Shriners Hospitals for Children – Twin Cities® Prom on Saturday, April 11 at the Minnesota Masonic Home in Bloomington, Minn. The annual event is a special night for young patients who are being treated for orthopaedic and neuromusculoskeletal conditions. This is the fifth year MSC has participated.
“We always look forward to enhancing the prom experience for these young people each year,” says Jill Hocking, campus director at Minnesota School of Cosmetology-Woodbury. “We love making them feel glamorous and seeing the confidence it give them. Our students say it’s something they will always remember being a part of.”
MSC recently announced the latest prom beauty trends, which include pastel colors, long beach waves and loose updos. Students plan to incorporate these styles into the hair and makeup looks for the Shriners Prom-goers this year.
“Shriners Hospitals for Children’s Prom would not be as special as it is without the support of students and staff from Minnesota School of Cosmetology,” says Lauren Elm, director of public and community relations for Shriners Hospital for Children® – Twin Cities. “We can’t thank the Minnesota School of Cosmetology enough for their partnership over the last five years. The students use their talents to make our prom attendees feel beautiful inside and out, which is exactly what we hope for.”
Minnesota School of Cosmetology will style hair and makeup for prom attendees from 1-5 p.m. at the Minnesota Masonic Home, located at 11501 Masonic Home Drive, Bloomington, MN 55437.
