A staple service provider at Project Connect is the West Michigan College of Barbering and Beauty. The college seeks to provide the beauty industry with hair designers (Cosmetology, Barbering, Instructors, and Nail Technicians) who are respected by their employers and their profession. At Project Connect the students of the college provide haircuts free of charge! We are excited to have them back again for our Project Connect event on May 8th!
