Beauty takes the crown when it comes to Adrienne Harvey opening up about the cosmetology program at Flagler Technical Institute. Harvey has passion for teaching skills and maintaining hair.
She keeps it moving through the career and technical division of continuing education for the Flagler County school system.
She is the daughter of retired Flagler Palm Coast High School science teacher Ada Harvey.
Jenna Cole and Swazibelle Brenes are students who began cosmetology as electives while attending Flagler Palm Coast High School. They are preparing for the state exam to become licensed.
The students are experiencing the results they’ve been dreaming of in 40 weeks, or 1,200 hours for full-time students, and 68 weeks for part-time students.
Harvey’s portable classroom offers a relaxed solution to attaining beauty. It is located down the road from Flagler Palm Coast High School, off State Road 100.
Salon services in facials and nails are taught on campus at Flagler Technical Institute, One Corporate Drive.
You’ll be surprised that a Jheri curl will cost $10; a chemical relaxer for virgin hair, $15; and a chemical relaxer (retouch), $10. This is only a partial list of services.
Harvey’s cosmetologists will be happy to work your tresses on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
To schedule an appointment, call 386-437-7540, extension 5507.
AKAs host Cluster III meeting
Ivy Leaf reporter Gloria Wilkins wrote that the Palm Coast chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority hosted the recent Cluster III meeting at World Golf Village in St. Augustine.
It is part of the sorority’s South Atlantic Region, which includes South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. It makes up 11 graduate and three undergraduate chapters. Welcomed by Chi Delta Omega president Sue Baety Fray and meeting chair Myra Middleton-Valentine were 212 ladies.
The theme, “Committed to Timeless Service,” was reinforced by comments from Regional Director Marsha L. Brown and Cluster Coordinator Bonnie Atwater.
Workshops were presented regarding parliamentary procedure, financial fitness and international updates.
Luncheon highlights were the awards of a Community Service Project of 267 p.j. garments and underwear to Mark Jones, CEO, Volusia-Flagler Community Partnership for Children.
A display of Palm Coast vocal talent was well-received and featured Alexis Williams, Kayon Jones and Cassie Eugene.
