Hair Salon Opens Inside West Jordan Middle School Offering Low-Cost Cuts to Struggling Students & Members of the Community

It is a first of its kind in Jordan School District and will help students and members of the community who struggle to afford the cost of haircuts. Students in the Barbering Program at JATC South will operate a hair salon inside West Jordan Middle School catering their cuts to students and others. The school saw a unique need after students were found cutting one another’s hair in restrooms to save money. So, a local hair salon, B Space Salon, stepped in and generously donated the barbering chairs, sinks, mirrors, and all other equipment needed to open the in-school salon called the “Lion’s Mane.”

The salon will give Barbering students valued hands-on experience with real clients and it will fulfill a need at West Jordan Middle and in the school community. Operating hours are still being determined, we will share that information when it is available.
