SGTC Cosmetology Students Learn Clipper Cutting from Special Guest
Great Clips of Leesburg manager Daphne Morris visited the South Georgia Technical College (SGTC) cosmetology lab recently to talk with students and demonstrate how to perform a clipper cut.
Elizabeth Lumpkin, adjunct instructor of cosmetology at SGTC, invited Morris to speak with the class about her experiences in the industry and to show them how to properly cut hair with electric clippers.
Morris, who is a successful cosmetologist with 24-years of experience in the industry, performed a 30-minute demonstration on the proper technique and form for clipper cutting for the students, instructor trainees and instructors. Afterwards, she spoke with the class for nearly 30 minutes about the cosmetology industry.
As someone who says she has seen the cosmetology industry from all angles during her long career, Morris says that teamwork and communication remain the two most important factors among industry professionals.
Additionally, she told students that they have chosen a career that comes with job security, calling the industry “recession proof.”
The 20 students who were in attendance left the day with a few tips from the speaker and their instructor, Ms. Dorothea Lusane-McKenzie. Morris’ advice for the students was to “charge your client for what your services are worth and continue your education,” she said. McKenzie rivaled that statement by adding the importance of networking within the industry and the need to continue expanding your skillset.
The South Georgia Technical College cosmetology program is one year in length and has a 100% pass rate for the licensure program.
