EDUCATION need a hair change, too.” The school is accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences so it can accept financial aid. It’s licensed by the Iowa Department of Public Health Board of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences, Owens said. Students take their final exams and then must apply for a license through the board before they can work in the industry. Most of the school’s students are young and most are female, Owens said, but the school has four male students this term, and that seems to be a trend. “There’s less bar- bering schools in the state of Iowa,” Owens said. Male students perform all of the service the women do in class. “We teach them the full curriculum,” Owens said, but they can choose to cut only male hair when they are licensed. “They just can’t call themselves a barber, but they can choose to do nothing but male haircuts,” Owens said. Rene McFarland of Bloomfield and Madison Mundell of Ottumwa put Eva Brown’s hair in curlers on a Tuesday after- noon. Brown said she’s had her hair styled at the school many times. “It’s cheaper. I’ve been coming here for years.” For more information about Iowa School of Beauty, visit https://iowaschoolofbeauty. com/ or contact Owens at 641-684-6504.
