Experience the quality and professionalism of the Paul Mitchell Culture at Studio RLC, now open to the public at Rend Lake College MarketPlace in Mt. Vernon.
Rend Lake College is the only public community college in the nation which has become a Paul Mitchell Partner School. Students in RLC’s Cosmetology Program are trained in Paul Mitchell methods and culture, and these students now are offering their skills to the populace.
"These students are highly trained, skilled and eager to serve the public," said Cosmetology Program Director Kenita Dudley.
Hours at Studio RLC are 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Saturday, according to Dudley. Walk-ins and appointments are welcome at this full-service salon. Studio RLC is a state-of-the-art facility featuring all-new equipment, she added.
Dudley said customers receiving hair color treatments should come in 24 to 48 hours prior to their appointments to receive a patch test, which determines if a customer is allergic to any chemicals which may be used. Chemical treatments stop at 2 p.m. daily, she said.
Typical prices at Studio RLC are $7 to $12 for haircuts, $20 for permanents, $8 for manicures and $10 for pedicures. Other services offered at the salon include foiling, hair coloring, artificial nails, basic facials and brow waxing, among others. Paul Mitchell products also are available for sale at Studio RLC.
Students who train in a Paul Mitchell Partner School have an advantage of vastly increased marketability in the job market. Paul Mitchell training is ideal for those seeking a career rather than just a job. Paul Mitchell Partner School graduates operate on a higher level than graduates of an average cosmetology school, according to Dudley.
The next dates for starting classes at RLC’s Paul Mitchell Cosmetology Program are March 1, May 3 and July 6.
