HERKIMER – Local residents have a place where they can treat themselves to salon and spa services while also helping local students prepare for their careers.

That place is the Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES cosmetology clinic, Salon Illusions, at 352 Gros Blvd. in Herkimer. Senior Herkimer BOCES cosmetology students offer a variety of services under the supervision of instructors Holly Rotundo and MaryBeth Napolitano.

Herkimer BOCES cosmetology student Justyna Ingraham, 18, of Frankfort-Schuyler, said the clinic is a great opportunity.

“I think it’s very exciting because I get to work with real clients, and it puts us in the real world,” she said. “And it’s my passion, so it makes it that much better.”

The cosmetology clinic is open from 9-11 a.m. on Wednesday through Friday at Herkimer BOCES, by appointment only. To make an appointment with the clinic, call 315-867-2043.

There is a range of costs for services such as $5 for nail art, $7 for haircuts with styling and $12 for OPI gel polishing. Proceeds from the clinic are used to help offset the cost of supplies used during the clinic.
Some of the many other services offered include spa pedicures and manicures as well as special effects hair-coloring techniques such as ombre, highlights and lowlights.

In addition to providing salon services to the community at discounted prices, the clinic also allows the students to perfect the skills needed to gain employment after they graduate, Napolitano said.

“This is where they’re getting their hands-on experience,” she said. “Because they get this experience, they are truly career-ready once they successfully complete the program.”

Ingraham plans to go into a career doing cosmetology and tattoo work, so the clinic allows her to prepare for that path, she said.

“It helps me with my confidence,” she said. “It helps me know that I’m able to do this profession and not be one of those nervous wrecks.”

Herkimer BOCES senior Brianne Nobile, 16, of Little Falls, said she plans to go into cosmetology work – preferably focused on aesthetics such as nails and massage therapy – so the clinic is a big help.

“I like it,” she said. “It gives me a lot of practice.”

Herkimer BOCES senior Vanessa Gleba, 17, of Central Valley, also plans to use the clinic experience to help her with a career in cosmetology.

“I like it,” she said. “It’s fun and prepares us for after this.”
