Testimonial

quotes
I’m a recent graduate from Weatherford College Cosmetology.

My best memory from WC is the feeling I get from creating a beautiful hairstyle or seeing how happy the clients are when you go the extra mile for their services.

My favorite instructor is Valerie Hopkins because she’s so encouraging and uplifting with her students. I’ve gained so much confidence learning from her. I will forever consider her a sister.
