NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Students and faculty members of Cape Fear Community College's Cosmetology Program opened the doors to a new classroom located at the north campus in Castle Hayne.

The extra space helps students with hands-on training while also providing wonderful services to the public.

"It's double the size we had," said Dana Webb.  "The students are really enjoying the new facility."

Students are excited about the big change as well.  "It's not just a place to learn," said Erin Wiant.  "It's also a full service salon open to the public."

The program is generating positive feedback from members of the community who enjoy the services offered.

"The students and the instructors have been wonderful," said customer Laura Edwards.  "I've been going to the CFCC Cosmetology Department since they opened the old building and this has been outstanding."

Besides getting a hair cut and style, the new facility also offers a wide variety of other services, such as pedicures, manicures and facials.

Cape Fear Community College and New Hanover County Schools will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the opening of that new building, which also houses the Wilmington Early College High School, September 8, at 10:00 a.m.
