Pontotoc Technology Center students competed in Cosmetology Regionals contest Feb. 17

Ada — Pontotoc Technology students recently competed in Cosmetology Regional contest at Southern Technology Center. The categories were as follows:

Cosmetology

Students demonstrated their skills in haircutting, hair styling and long hair design in four separate tests. 

All work is performed on mannequins so everyone begins with the same model and the same type of hair. Contestants created a woman’s long haircut, a woman’s short haircut and one formal updo from a finished photo. 

A display of creativity is seen in the updo hair segment of the competition where these future salon professionals demonstrate their own design skills. 

Nail Care

The purpose of this contest is to evaluate each contestant's preparation for employment and to recognize outstanding students' excellence and professionalism in the field of nail technology. 

The contest consists of six separate segments: oral communication skills, acrylic application, tip and wrap application, nail polish application, nail art and a written exam. 

The written exam tests basic knowledge of proper sanitation, chemical safety, salon procedures, etc. The practical applications evaluate the contestant's ability to perform the most common nail services in the salon.

Esthetics 

The Esthetics competition evaluates the contestants’ techniques and professionalism in the field of skin care. 

Students were tested in six different areas: an oral skin consultation; a written exam covering the fundamentals of skin care; sanitation; skin analysis; a hands-on basic facial demonstration; and a day time and fantasy make-up application.
