Strand College of Hair Design was founded because of our belief in quality education and bringing up the standards of the beauty industry.

A message to our students, from President Nancy Poole:

As directed by Governor McMaster, Strand College of Hair Design will be closed through March 31st, 2020. The staff is completing plans to start online classes in order to keep students moving forward in their educational curriculums.

We have received information from the US Department of Education and our Accreditation Commission NACCAS regarding the process/ procedure for going about this. We are waiting only on South Carolina Board of Cosmetology for their approval of online and distance learning classes.

During these next couple of days we will be putting this plan into effect. In the meantime, please download “Zoom Cloud Meetings” and “Google docs” as these are the platforms we hope to use, upon approval from South Carolina State Board. If you do not have access to internet, Spectrum is offering free services during this emergency. Please contact them for more information by calling 1(844) 488-8398 . Please regularly check your emails, our social media pages and our website for instructions and notifications of procedures.

**If you do not have your textbook and workbooks, please come to Strand College and pick them up today, 3/16 between 1:00-1:30 pm. Without your books, you will be limited to hours you can obtain during this emergency.

Stay safe everyone! We hope to have more updates soon.
