9 scrapbooks provided by our partner Southeastern Community College document the Cosmetology Club at Southeastern Community College from the 1970s through the early 2000s. Southeastern Community College is located between Chadbourn and Whiteville in Columbus County, North Carolina. Southeastern Community College currently offers a cosmetology degree program and sponsors a cosmetology club open to all cosmetology students. Current club activities include educational programs, trips, social events, and more.

The club’s history is captured through these 9 scrapbooks. The scrapbooks contain photographs, news clippings, and programs pertaining to the club. Events like the annual Spring Hair Show as well as educational demonstrations and club officer elections are covered.

The fun photographs in these scrapbooks show the evolution of popular hair, makeup, and beauty trends through the decades, and give a behind the scenes view of how iconic looks are put together. Club members, who put long hours into learning the latest styles, often practiced hair or makeup techniques on themselves or each other, making for some fabulous photos.
