-- Hair Benders Academy, 851 E. State Road in Longwood will offer 50% off all services to active duty armed forces personnel May 25 and 26.
The award-winning cosmetology school will also extend a 30% discount May 25 and 26 to family members of military personnel such as spouse, mother, father, sister, brother or dependents children who can provide a military I.D. or some sort of proof of their relationship.
“We would not have the freedoms we enjoy today without the sacrifices of the men and women who serve in our military,” said Jessica Wolman, one of the owners of the schools. “This special is our way to thank these brave men and women, as well as their family members.”
“Due to the flexible hours, as well as the ongoing need for beauty services, a career in cosmetology is often a good fit for family members of armed forces personnel as well as veterans,” said Margie Wisniski, vice president of operations. “We invite anyone interested in learning more about a career in cosmetology to give us a call and set up an appointment for a tour.”
According to a U.S. News and World Report hairdresser is cited as one of the best jobs of 2012. In a March 21, 2012 article in USA Today, beauty salon sales grew 5.4 %.4 in the last two years vs. a 2.3% sales increase in 2009. With the Bureau of Labor Statistics projections of 15.7% employment growth expected by 2020, the future of hair salons and the future of hair stylists should continue to grow.
In addition to the cosmetology school in Longwood the company owns ITS Academy of Beauty schools in Texas and Oklahoma, International Academy of Hair Design in Arizona and Olympian University in New Mexico.
