Robeson Community College lounge reopens Wednesday
June 2 – LUMBERTON – The Robeson Community College lounge will reopen on Wednesday.
The show will be open on Wednesdays and Thursdays of each week from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
On Wednesday and Thursday, the college will host a smooth opening of the show that will allow cosmetology students to sort out logistics, get customer feedback and help with anticipation ahead of the grand reopening scheduled for June 9.
During the two weeks, customers will receive a 50% discount on up to two services, according to the RCC. This discount will apply to services received on Wednesday, Thursday June 9 and June 10. Door prize draws are scheduled for June 9.
The salon was temporarily closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, but now that the restrictions have been lifted, cosmetology students are eager to get things back to normal.
“We’re so excited,” said Rosita Pingol, RCC’s cosmetology program director. “The students are delighted to be returning to work on real clients, and we are delighted to welcome our repeat clients again.”
The salon that customers saw before COVID will not be the same salon they see on opening day, Pingol said.
“Our living room has been completely renovated,” she said.
The living room was redesigned during closure and now features a whole new layout, larger workstations and European bowls, giving it a more modern and sophisticated look.
“I want to thank the community for coming back to support us,” said Pingol. “In August our CCP high school students will be returning, so we’re excited to have a new look and feel for our salon, to welcome our clients and students again, and just take action to get back to the normal. “
The RCC salon offers haircuts, perms, waxing, hair color, manicure, hair care, pedicure and more. For a full list of services and prices, customers can visit https://www.robeson.edu/cosmetology-price-list to learn more.
