Get a quality haircut for $10 or hair color foils for $2 apiece. Want more? Salon, spa, nail care, and barbering services; dog grooming and bathing; and automotive maintenance and tire services are now available to the general public at a significant discount at ESBOCES and the Academy.
Applicable Adult Education and Career and Technical Education students now provide services in their areas of expertise for anyone who schedules an appointment. Students use these opportunities to sharpen technical and communication skills on real customers, who receive first-rate services at modified prices.
Salon haircuts, for example, are $10 and barbering cuts are $5. Basic manicures are $5. There are three price ranges for dog grooming, which correspond to dog size – $15, $20, and $25 – under 40 pounds, 40-80 pounds, and over 80 pounds, respectively. Auto prices are based upon required parts. See the services menus below, which also contain locations, pricing, available times, and phone numbers. (NOTE: All calls for appointments need to be made during listed hours only. Phones are not manned during off hours.) All transactions are cash only.
“With a little planning, customers can take advantage of numerous services during a single visit,” explained Marjorie Guzewicz, administrative coordinator for Literacy, Career, Technical, and Adult Education. “Case in point: A recent customer received a haircut while having her dog bathed and groomed, and the oil changed on her car.”
