Annual Collection of Mittens

French Academy of Cosmetology is holding their annual Mitten drive.


French Academy of Cosmetology is looking for your help.  There are children in our area that are in need of warm mittens and gloves  and hats for the upcoming winter season. 

Can you pick up an extra pair or find some unused quality mittens/gloves or hats sitting in your home, that you can donate to their drive?  You can drop those items off at the school and French Academy will make sure to deliver them to those in need.

French Academy's drop off location is:  111 W Exchange St. #A, Spring Lake, MI 49456-3207

Morning with Richard teaching professionalism in Cosmetology

A Morning with Richard

Master stylist Richard Morris was in French Academy of Cosmetology to share a plethora of  professional tips for our students.  One of his best tips was to "Dress for Success" during the interview process.  The students then implemented his advice and showed off their "Dress for Success" look by having a runway competition.

Come join French Academy's next class starting on Nov 3 to be a part of what a successful cosmetology career will mean to your life. 

We want to congratulate our winners and all of the students who participated.
