High school students can get a complimentary makeover at Remington College on select dates during prom season

Prom is a memory that can last forever, and Remington College wants to promote a fantastic experience for high school students to remember fondly for the rest of their lives. As a result, we provide teens special treatment for the night of their lives.

Unfortunately, not everyone can afford the cost of a trip to a high-priced salon. To fill this gap, during the height of prom season, Remington College campuses with cosmetology departments offer complete complimentary salon services to high school students, everything from hair to makeup to nails.

In addition to the normal prom experience, participants in Remington College's Prom Makeover program get to enjoy being pampered by cosmetology students, who in turn have a great time applying their cosmetology skills at the student salon.
