Hairstyling program hoping to ease local demand

A new program offered through the Seven Generations Education Institute here is hoping to ease the current high demand of hairstylists in the Fort Frances area.

The Hairstyling Diploma offered through SGEI's satellite campus on King's Highway, in partnership with Sault College, took a new intake of students for its inaugural program back in September.
