The National Barber College, at 137 E Main Cross inTaylorville, welcomed the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce for a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday. Debra Turvey, owner and instructor, opened the doors in late December, bringing an opportunity for future employment to Taylorville and the surrounding communities. Debra commented that barber shops are making a comeback and that many small communities lost their barber shops years ago. Through the National Barber College you will be equipped to pass the State of Illinois Boards that are a requirement. If you are interested in becoming a barber, contact Debra at 217-414-5416.
The National Barber College will be offering free haircuts during the months of January and February. Not only does this save you money, but this gives the students the hands on experience they will need to have in order to get started.
