KINGMAN – Students on two sides of the learning spectrum will be helping each other this prom season.

Kingman prom attendees will have a cost-effective way to get spiffed up for the big night, while All Beauty College cosmetology students will be able to inch toward their certifications.

The beauty college is teaming up with the Kingman High School “S” Club to provide an affordable way for the students to feel their best on prom night. Students at the college will be offering prom styles, makeup, mini-manicures and haircuts for the guys for a special price.

Amiee Lindsley, lead instructor at the beauty school, read the March 9 prom fair article in the Daily Miner and called KHS S-Club sponsor Jennifer Jackson to figure out how the college could help the high schoolers. This is the first time the beauty school will be offering the specially priced services. Lindsley wants to make it a yearly deal if all goes well.

“We put the word out to open the doors to students that needed something more affordable for prom,” she said, as she has a son who started high school this year. “I know how expensive that stuff can be.”

All Beauty College, 2153 E. Gordon Drive, has facilities and equipment for 100 students as well as 9,000 square feet for the practical education area with classroom and office space attached.

The college is extending its invitation to all Kingman high school prom-goers, regardless of economic status, and will offer discounted deals: $15 for prom styles, $20 style and make-up, $6 mini-manicures and $6 haircuts for boys.

Those prices apply to the prom dates: April 22 for KHS and Kingman Academy High School and April 29 for Lee Williams High School.

Would-be prom attendees can get the same services from the cosmetology students at a slightly increased price before prom. All services are performed under licensed instructor supervision.

“This will give the beauty school students a chance to hone their skills,” said Lindsley. “Plus, it’s helping the community. We just want to get more involved and this is just a start.”
